Commemorating a rich past with an eye towards the future has been a hallmark of Tai Ping's identity for over 60 years. However, revisiting them in a whole new light proved to be an endeavor unlike any previous effort. Through carefully re-examining such a pivotal decade in our history and deconstructing our classic collections and focusing on their most exquisite and popular components, something deeper was soon revealed.
Once the forms, colours, materials and construction techniques that comprise the essence of Tai Ping had been captured, the challenge of how to reimagine them in a fresh, inventive way was met with our characteristically multi-dimensional approach. Each individual component was carefully translated and combined into striking new visual compositions that expose recognisable traces of past collections, reconciled in daring new contexts and settings that feel altogether original.
The result of this lovingly meticulous effort is Antho10gy, a remarkable collection that honours some of the best of our archives through an entirely contemporary lens. It is a celebration that, at once, encompasses the pleasing familiarity of a retrospective and combines the bracing immediacy of a radical remaking -- one that, in acknowledging previous success, establishes a blueprint for the future.
