Rubber Duck in China

Rubber Duck in China. Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck is very Popular during Beijing Design Week. BJDW adapted the image of the rubber duck for merchandise (badges, an actual bathtub version in a pretty box and yellow shoes), so did everybody else. At the Summer Palace, where it lies, you can find the duck all over the place. First as signing on the floor (so you know where to find it) next as a photo opportunity; re-sized both for parents and kids. The BJDW merchandise is sold in giant white eggs, the (counterfeit?) fluffy toy by people in the streets. The last encounter is with the Giant Rubber Duck itself, together with a gazillion other people you can stroll or paddle your way around this yellow icon. For us, at Mimi Berlin it was a long anticipated, but weird trip …

Why are these photo’s so foggy? You ask of us. Well today the smog-alarm was 305 AQI, that’s why.
