The World Beyond


The World Beyond

The sourcing and procurement of vintage home, lifestyle and accessories has developed into a namesake service of Infrastructure. Having established Liberty of London’s Home and Lifestyle department as a pioneering retail concept, with its combination of contemporary and vintage pieces, Ross Urwin has developed a reputation as a retail creative internationally. This deep and extensive understanding of vintage, heritage and traditional craftsmanship, continued with the ‘Heritage Project’ at Lane Crawford.

The World Beyond, based in Hong Kong, was set up to expand on this expertise in sourcing vintage pieces for commercial and retail projects.  A compelling edit of 19th and 20th Century design  was curated as a pop-up gallery concept for discerning collectors.

An existing black book of contacts and new relationships with vintage dealers, collectors and vendors was forged to curate a comprehensive, well balanced collection of products.

The World Beyond hosted several events including launch parties and pop-up sales with carefully curated guest lists, targeting buyers and collectors in Hong Kong and South-East Asia.
