Read & Coffee

© R&C Design Library

R&C Gallery is running a photo exhibition in their newly opened R&C Design Library.

Exhibiting the work of the city’s as well as the region’s promising photographers, Our Life: People · Environment · Objects opened last Saturday Sept 18, 2010 and will run till the end of October 2010.

“We are thrilled to have this new space for the creative community here” said Corey, the proprietor of R&C Design Library. Like the name suggested, this exciting new venue is a creative living space that doubles as the design studio office that he also runs. “We hope that our playground can become other’s creative inspiration too” followed Zen, the designer/manager-in-charge of the gallery and the exhibition.

Out of curiosity, I decided to drop in on my walk back to my flat one fine evening last August. Situated at the moderately quiet & green neighborhood, the place was an instant love to the curious-minded like me. Sporting a neo-classique & industrial interior; vintage couches, arm chairs and countless desk lamps of different eras were scattered around the 100 m2 to add a touch of old-school sentiment to the youthful idea-inspiring work-pad. The visit that night lead me to a spectacle of high spirited conversation, friendship & coffee.

5-min tram ride from the busy Causeway Bay & Quarry Bay districts, R&C is a breath of fresh air to the stereotypically fast-paced souls of this heavily commercialized society. If you are visiting, R&C is a great hang-out after a day’s shopping trip; if you live in HK, they open 4–8pm daily for freshly brewed coffee or even just a peak into their growing collection of books, magazines & goodies.
