multiple choice: sculptural scarfs

multiple choice is a project-based retail venture.

Each project takes on a different form depending on its concept, which can be anything from a place or a function, to a colour or even a texture. In may 2008, multiple choice debuted its first project, "made in hk", which took the form of a month-long guerrilla store in nyc featuring clothing, accessories, and objects by hong kong-based independent labels, with the objective of showing that their innovative designs are a vibrant counterpoint to the negative stereotypes conventionally associated with the "made in hk" label.

(1) thing, the online shop of multiple choice, currently features a collection of brand new sculptural scarfs.

The official Verner Panton reference portal

NOW online

He made design history with his visionary creations. Verner Panton revolutionised the way the Sixties looked at design, especially with his interiors. The mans modest and impassioned manner was in considerable contrast to the image of the enfant terrible which the international design scene liked to associate with him. Today, fifty years later, his designs are among the most popular icons of the 20th century. What is remarkable above all is that his conceptual and formal ideas are only now being fully adopted in architectural and design trends, and are being used as the basis for further development made possible by computer-aided design and production processes. Verner Panton was ahead of his time.
