A collaboration by The Butter Factory x White Antler, revamp of Bump Room
There’s no hesitation when Celeste Chong and Bobby Luo co-founders of Butter Factory approached White Antler on this collaboration. We knew we would have fun and could create wonders with them.This is our first large scale project ever since White Antler started last Nov 2011. We would like to thank Butter Factory for this great opportunity to collaborate with them. It was a pleasure working with Bobby and his crews. They were very accommodating and easy to work with.
This collaboration was a combination effort of style insprations from Bobby and us. "Music Soothes The Savage Beast” is our theme for this revamp. It is White Antler's representation of elegance amidst chaos. Crooked bookshelf, gold empty frames and mirrors extended to the ceiling, bums of taxidermy stuffed toys on the wall, the asymmetrical wallpapers and the unusual spoon and fork chandelier. Upside down bed on the ceiling. They are an interpretation of the busy and chaotic world we living in now and Music has the power to shape the society, the power to heal, rehabilitate, brings people together and to make us believe that there are better days ahead.
We put a lot of heart into this collaboration with The Butter Factory. Every piece of décor are specially handpicked and mostly are made from scratch. For example, the taxidermy walls, the stuffed animals are sawed into half, re-stuffed and put up on real sawed varnished tree trunks through a painstaking process. Every cutlery was attached to the spoon and fork chandelier by hand. The White Antler mixed media sculpture showcase above the fireplace was solely pieced up by myself. All Skulls and the Beethoven sculpture were made at my little studio at home. We wanted each piece to tell a story and made from the heart.
So please do take a weekend off to party at The Butter Factory if you haven't. Its a new transformation of the Bump Room guaranteed to blow your mind away. We put in alot of heart and sweat into this revamp. 2 months preparation and 2 weeks set up. A whole new clubbing experience we created for you just at The Butter Factory.
