G.O.D.
Oh G.OD. A signature of Hong Kong kitsch.

Whether it’s furniture, fashion or kitschy souvenirs, G.O.D. designs are conversation pieces.

For Mid-Autumn Festival, their bum-shaped “moon” cakes sold out in a flash. Their 14K T-shirts, are now collector’s items after the Hong Kong Police confiscated them for breaking the anti-triad Societies Ordinance that prohibits the possession of materials displaying triad insignia. Their Delay No More fashion and underwear line is a play on a Cantonese obscenity.

Provocation aside, G.O.D.’s furniture and homeware designs are stylish additions to the home -- from their signature double happiness range of scented candles and accessories to Ming-inspired dining tables.

G.O.D. also carry a wide range of home appliances from Miele steamers to Brabantia dustbins.
