MALAYSIA’S premier online furniture retailer, is thrilled to announce the unveiling of its art installation Creating Shared Connections in collaboration with renowned Malaysian artist Kar Wai Chan.
Held on 2 February 2024, the exhibition is set to transform the traditional concept of showcasing furniture, combining Nordic-inspired designs and the romance of Valentine’s Day with the artistic brilliance of Kar Wai’s latest series; Cupid Rhapsody: Way Back To Love.
Cuura Space, known for its exclusive online approach to offering Nordic-inspired furniture directly to customers, revolutionises the furniture industry by providing a seamless online shopping experience, eliminating on-ground and middle-men expenses to offer customers the most competitive prices.
With a 30-day return policy, coupled with free installation and delivery services, the brand ensures that customers can enjoy their purchases with peace of mind.
The brand also allows customers to experience the furniture in person, collaborating with venues and partners for limited-time showcases in and around Kuala Lumpur.
With their latest exhibition, Cuura Space is breaking new ground by hosting an art installation that challenges conventional presentation methods.
Hosted at SWOL Cafe, Bangsar, the event features an innovative display—an entire bedroom set suspended on the wall, adorned with doodles and paintings by Kar Wai.
“We’re looking to change the way people view furniture, literally and metaphorically. We normally view furniture as just things, objects you expect to find at home, but in truth, they offer so many opportunities for connecting and improving relationships — from the sofa, where you can sit and spend time with your loved ones, to your dining table where meals and memories are shared, to the bed, where you can share intimate moments with your significant other. By displaying these pieces alongside Kar Wai’s artwork, we’re aiming to showcase these opportunities for connection — something relevant during February since Valentine’s Day is this month,” commented Founder and Chief Executive Office of CUURA Space, Benny Lim.
A self-taught Malaysian artist, Kar Wai has gained recognition in the art scene for her vivid tapestries capturing life’s diverse moments.
Her artwork, previously featured alongside prestigious brands like McLaren and Lamborghini, and displayed at major events such as F1, showcases her unique talent.
Showcasing her latest art series, the exhibition centred around the theme of Cupids exploring the many themes of love, aligning perfectly with the ambience of February.
“There is no one shape of love — platonic, romantic, healthy, and unhealthy — it comes in all shapes and forms. The Cupid series examines the many forms love can take, and how it can exist between people, or even for memories and events. Even the exhibition method is centred around that, the paintings display the shapes of love and how it connects us, while the furniture exhibits highlight how these connections are formed.” – Kar Wai
Reshaping the furniture viewing experience, the exhibition invites visitors to immerse themselves in an upside-down museum scenario, where the boundaries between art and furniture dissolve.
Backed by the watchful eyes of cheerful cherubs and cheeky cupids, the exhibition only encourages the spirit of connection, celebrating the beauty of shared moments and the intimacy of spending quality time with loved ones.
Exhibition visitors can also enjoy a unique purchase with a purchase offer when they visit from 3rd to 29th February.
