Shanghai streets truly unique scenes, even as they’re fading into memory in this ever-changing city in the throes of modernization, PUBLIC GARMENTS captures scenes of various clothing hung outdoors for drying – amusing, poetic, with a tinge of nostalgia, and brimming with local life.
The wooden clothes pegs included in the box set serve as a souvenir as well as a reminder to conserve energy – drying clothes without using a dryer. They can also be used to clip photographs, postcards and anything as far as your imagination would take you.
PUBLIC GARMENTS received the Red Dot Design Award 2010.
