Exotic antiques, animated furniture, a bed designed in a suitcase, you may find yourself in a life-sized comic book in Suning’s pop-up exhibition in Nanjing. Chinese leading retailer Suning partnered with interdisciplinary artist Emily Forgot and the firm’s high-end retail service platform Sup’s to produce the first PLAY HOME pop-up exhibition on Dec. 31.
