Store Concepts: Living with nature as one
More than 100 overseas and local brands are introduced in Slowood, aiming to be dedicated to providing green and affordable alternatives for daily essentials. Plenty of them are plant-based and biodegradable necessities. Not only does the store construction style is about edgy and trendy designs, the decoration and display ideas of Slowood are from various green concepts such as using the recycled Styrofoam and wooden wine cases as a display shelves. Different branding accessories would be designed each brand to show their story and uniqueness.

Back to Basic: Zero packaging and refill station
Over-packaging is a common situation in Hong Kong. To keep things simple and reduce waste at source, Slowood would introduce bulk purchase of food and household products, plus a refill station in the store. Bring your own containers, weigh what you want and take it home. Slowood strives to promote Zero waste shopping behavior from the community.

Slowood ‘Grows’ a Vegan Refreshments Corner
Slowood gets the featured vegan friendly cafe in the store. Mike, our main chef from Le Cordon Bleu Tokyo, and we also invited the Denmark based British chef Robert to join, he often explores the forest, travelling into nature. With both experiences inspired each other in attempt to create a healthy and unique vegan menu. Being inspired by the natural power of fungi (mushroom), Slowood spent over few months to plant and grow the cafe furniture such as lampshade and table chair by “Fungi”. Visitors can enjoy the exquisite mushroom meals while being surrounded by the mushroom nature. A two meters tall Mushroom King sculpture is also waiting for visit as well.
