Venue: Stanley Plaza
Strato, the Italian haute couture kitchen system designer, has always been the perfect epitome of unique design with unparalleled creativity. It is no wonder that Marco Gorini and Gianna Farina, owner and chief designer of Strato, recently created a life-sized cow sculpture in support of Hong Kong’s first CowParade, one of the most reputable international public art exhibitions.
The exquisite art piece, named Milk Bar, was created with industrial aestheticism. There is a cut-out in the middle made entirely of copper as a tribute to Strato’s signature kitchen design ‘Semplice’. Milk Bar, along with four other cow sculptures designed by international renowned artists, will be auctioned after a one-month exhibition at Stanley Plaza. All proceeds of the auction will be donated to “Heifer International Hong Kong” and “Giving Love”.
CowParade Hong Kong, was part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini. Milk Bar was specially selected and toured around the city in an ad truck at Causeway Bay, Central, Wanchai and many other places for a week as a representative to announce the coming of this breathtaking event. On April 27th, 30 Lamborghini super sports cars paraded together with the Milk Bar ad truck from Central to Stanley Plaza to kick off the opening ceremony. Many prominent guests, including Hong Kong superstar Aaron Kwok, joined the ceremony of speed and passion.
During the opening ceremony, German luxury kitchen specialist Gaggenau provided an authentic Italian epicure experience to the connoisseurs, giving guests a 360 degree of enjoyment of vision, speed, taste and excitement.
