CNY INSTALLATION @ OCBC BANK

This was such an open door for us - to have been entrusted the task to jazz up the branches with some Chinese New Year (CNY) cheer!

We gave the traditional CNY elements - the mandarin orange, the auspicious blessing, and cherry blossoms a fresh and modern take. Retaining their colours and shapes, we came up with a pattern that could be tessellated on different surfaces in the bank - the tellers, booths and glass panels. Each piece you see is lovingly and painstakingly made of individually cut out felt and mounted on a plastic sheet. The entire installation was made of thousands of these pieces! 

To say that this was challenging would be an understatement, but we are ever so grateful for this opportunity to have our work be a blessing in such a public space. Thank you OCBC for believing in local start-ups!

Branches: OCBC Centre, NEX, ION, Upper Thomson, Sixth Avenue and Katong
