Founded by Kuan Chun Cheng, Homework is an interior design studio that specializes in making use of old and found elements. The team of four also run a vintage shop out of their quarters at No. 6, Alley 1, Lane 172, on Sanyuan Street, in Taipei City, Taiwan.
“Modern society has produced so many quick products. In exchange for low cost, the beauty and texture are discarded,” writes Kuan Chun. “This new consumption norm has inadvertently caused more waste. In fact, if you can choose, why not go back in time with us, cherish every age full of sentimental objects?” Join us for a tour of the Xiao Yin Tea House, created by Homework from what had been a noodle joint—and currently open for business.
