A home for the Yu Mei family and community has opened in our hometown of Wellington.
Located at 85 Victoria Street - in the same building that houses our studio - the Wellington Lounge provides a beautiful, luxury retail experience.
Designed by Rufus Knight of Knight Associates, the Wellington Lounge expands on the simple design language we established at our Ponsonby Lounge pop up. Full length brass fixtures line the walls, reflecting warmth from the natural oak accents. The gallery wall houses a revolving selection of art as a nod to the collaborative effort of the many artists and craftsmen who had a hand in creating the space.
The centrepiece is our oversized Giotto marble point of sale that houses our favourite feature: the drinks fridge. Occupying a central part of the Yu Mei story, we wanted our community of customers to feel at home in the Lounge as a place they could come and have a drink, learn about the processes and be involved in the brand.
To celebrate the opening of the Wellington Lounge, we held an open-invite event, with drinks generously sponsored by Garage Project, Mineral, Chia Sisters and Antipodes. A warm thanks to our friends, old and new, who came to mark this special occasion with us.
We invite you to come and visit Grace, Georgie and Jacqui at our Wellington Lounge, 85 Victoria St.
