Klomp!

Date: Dec 2008 – May 2009
Location: Star Street UG Lobby, Three Pacific Place, Hong Kong

KLOMP! is a cross-cultural design-for-charity event. Hong Kong and China based artists and designers were given a pair of original Dutch wooden shoes (‘Clogs’ in English, ‘Klompen’ in Dutch), with the belief to ‘do something with them’ while keeping the original clog recognisable in some form. The clogs have been exhibited and auctioned with the proceeds donated to charity.

The iconic, authentic Dutch clog combined with the unique local Hong Kong point-of-view of the artists resulted in a series of wonderful works. Klomp! is organized by Local Dutch, and first presented as part of the Detour programme of the Business of Design Week 2008, Hong Kong.
