POP-UP STORES! Kapok pop-up store, Singapore

April 10th, 2014 by retail design blog

Originally from France, Arnault Castel settled in Hong Kong where he founded the very first Kapok store. Its sharply curated range of art + design goods quickly gained a large following among a specific demographic and today he successfully runs five stores and shop-in-shops in the city. Retail operations later on expanded to Singapore where currently two outlets supply design-obsessed shoppers. But Castel has even bigger plans for the lion city and plans to open a flagship store + café – it’s going to be the biggest store ever – at the prestigious National Design Centre.

But leading up to this milestone is the timely launch of a pop-up store on the very same premises, coinciding with this year’s edition of Singapore Design Week. For this Kapok pop-up store Castel has collaborated with Singapore-based design collective Grafunkt – they will also design the flagship store – while The U Factory has stocked the temporary store with local design products and will run their popular U Café during Design Week. Kapok will introduce a selection of fav brands from the city state and abroad, and presents its first collection of shirts.
