K11 MUSEA是维港沿岸商业区中一座旨在融合文化体验和商业活动的、十层楼的零售空间。在商场正门入口处,有一个让人眼前一亮的装置KUBE。该装置旨在创造一个独特而亲密的空间,让国内外的游客和路人可以稍作休息,更好地体验香港的美。

Amid the myriad of skyscrapers and luxurious retail spaces at Hong Kong’s waterfront, the KUBE at K11 MUSEA is an installation to create a distinctive and intimate place for encounters and happenings—an invitation to shoppers and passers-by from the local community and abroad to stop by, and be fully present to experience the city.

KUBE是一个紧凑的多功能装置:既是自助服务亭、户外休息区,也是一个开放式的活动空间。KUBE的主要部分为金色的立方体,是当地一家手工艺咖啡酿造商的零售处。立方体的阳极氧化铝表面会随着光照量的不同而变换色彩。在黎明和黄昏、白天或黑夜游客都能在此感受别样的风情。

Located in front of a main entrance of K11 MUSEA—a ten-storey retail space designed to blend cultural experiences and commerce—the KUBE is a compact, multi-functional installation: at once a kiosk, an outdoor seating area and an event space. Part of the KUBE is a golden colour cube, which is home to a local artisan coffee brewer. Its anodised aluminum finish changes colour as light of different qualities reflects from the material, offering visitors unique scenes at dawn and dusk, day and night.

立方体旁的座位区域也是装置的一部分。户外桌椅由石砌立方体构成,其布局旨在鼓励游客之间的互动和交流。人们通常会在石块旁驻足以暂作休息、喝杯咖啡、或只是纯粹为了欣赏维港美景。这些石块还为诸如户外演出等不同活动的开展创造了可能性,为附近的购物中心注入更多的文化活力。

Seating is an integral part of the installation. Adjacent to the kiosk is a set of stone cubes that functions as outdoor chairs and tables—configured in a way to enhance connections between visitors. People stopping by the stone cubes for coffee breaks, or simply to enjoy the harbour view, readily end up in serendipitous conversations. The stone cubes also create possibilities for different events—such as outdoor performances with a harbour view—to inject cultural programs into the shopping area.

在一些特别的活动中,一个巨大的、从维港上空都能看到的红色气球被安装在KUBE上方。它就像一个“城市天篷”,把所有的参与者聚集在同一个屋檐下;它同时还像一枚“城市勋章”,标志着KUBE是一个能激发灵感的地方。虽然规模较小,但KUBE以简单的几何形状和周围引人入胜的事物而著称,是城市体验的全新地标。

For special events, a giant red balloon, visible from across Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour, is installed as a “city canopy” to gather all participants under the same roof, and as an “urban pin” to mark the KUBE as a place in the city for inspiring encounters. Small in scale, yet distinguished by its simple geometry and engaging happenings around it, KUBE is an urban landmark of experience, rather than spectacle.
