[Taiwan] LANG LANG DON'T CRY x HOLA
動物真的可以被描述為有毛有四腳的幸福，這對很多人來說都是如此，尤其是那些有寵物的人。我們毛茸茸的伙伴不僅是朋友，也是家人，有時需要幫助才能過上他們應得的美好生活。 Lang Lang Don’t Cry 是一家擁有三間分店的咖啡廳，其中主要位於台灣台北，另外兩個位於台灣台中和台灣台南。這家咖啡館不僅是一個舒適且設計精美的地方，可以享用一盤自製食品和一杯溫暖的拿鐵咖啡，而且還是一個“寵物中途之家”，到 2018 年已幫助 200 多隻流浪動物找到了“更遠”的家，自 2015 年成立以來，室內設計企業 HOLA 在這個假期與郎朗 Don't Cry 合作推出了一個系列，靈感來自我們毛茸茸的動物朋友們的故事和艱辛，他們在生活中的所有情況下都保持積極和熱愛。
HOLA 不僅因其出色的家居和家具設計而廣受歡迎，而且因其在其商店位置對寵物友好而廣受歡迎。對於寵物主人來說，家，尤其是家具是由我們毛茸茸的家庭成員共享或經常接管的。 HOLA 在支持有寵物的家庭方面做得很好，允許他們的商店對寵物友好，因為我們非常清楚我們的寵物同伴對家裡發生的事情和人類一樣有發言權。此次合作發布了一系列產品，即使在家中日常生活的小時刻，也能展現並真實展現我們與心愛的毛茸茸朋友之間的深愛和聯繫。
Animals can really be described as happiness with fur and four legs and this holds true for so many people, especially those with pets. Our furry companions are not just friends but family and sometimes need help in living the wonderful life that they deserve. Lang Lang Don’t Cry is a café of three branches, of which the main is located in Taipei, Taiwan and two other locations in Taichung, Taiwan as well as Tainan, Taiwan. This café is not only a comforting and beautifully designed place to enjoy a plate of homemade type food and a warm latte but is also a ‘Pet Half-way House’ that has helped over 200 stray animals find their “furever” homes by 2018, after establishing in 2015. Interior Design enterprise HOLA has reached out this holiday season to partner with Lang Lang Don’t Cry to release a collection inspired by the stories and hardships of our furry animal friends whom stay positive and loving through all situations in life.
HOLA is popular not only for fantastic home and furniture design but also for being pet-friendly in their store locations. For pet owners, home and especially the furniture are shared or often taken over by our furry family members. HOLA does great in supporting homes with pets in allowing their stores to be pet-friendly, knowing very well that our pet companions have just as much say as humans on what goes on at home. This collaboration has released a selection of products that can display and truly show the deep love and connection we have with our beloved furry friends in even the small moments of daily life at home.
The first item is a tissue box, something we are always reaching towards when at home with pets, lovingly cleaning up after they knock over something in excitement or track mud over the tile floor. This tissue box has a soft wood exterior, a calm addition to any home and cutely but meaningfully designed with a house shaped opening and the emotive slogan ‘Let Me Be Your Shelter’ coined by Lang Lang Don’t Cry- printed alongside a small pack of dog and cat characters.
There are two engraved wooden tableware trays, one traditional breakfast tray and the other, a small house shaped coffee tray with a cute little wooden dessert fork to serve alongside with. There is also a set of two coasters, printed with the different animal mascots as well as ‘Let Me Be Your Shelter’. The collection includes a fabric place mat with an embroidered image of two puppies in a teacup on the corner, making this along with the wooden trays the perfect set for breakfast in bed, a snack when studying or tea time.
To accompany the tableware are two beverage cups, one a reusable coffee cup with a built-in sleeve and stopper in a soft blue and white colour combination. The second is a beautiful camping style, enamel mug with an adorable print of dogs and cats sat peddling a multi-seat red bicycle together.
Last but not least, two sets of folder/envelope holders. These sets come in a pair of cats as well as a pair of dogs, the perfect mascots to guard and overlook your files and documents!
All of the items in this collection allow us to keep our furry friends closest to us and remind us how much we love our pets as part of our daily lives, whether it be when we are eating breakfast, taking a coffee break or organising important documents. Yes, we as people can provide the safe and warm home that these pets need- but at the same time it is truly these furry companions that house and shelter our hearts and complete the family.
