At Wink, we love groundbreaking ideas. That’s why we love Toong. It’s more than a coworking space, it’s the first work environment developer in Indochina. Basically, that’s a simple way to say they create workspaces that utilize design to provide inspiration for a range of customers from digital nomads to entrepreneurs, artists to local creators.
Spaces are key to good hotel design, and Toong’s unique take on how to utilize space and design has encouraged us to also focus on our communal spaces, which will work to inspire our guests and offer unique community experiences once we open our doors.
Named after a beehive, Toong is building a forward-thinking community rich in diversity. We love their take on the coworking space so much so that it’s inspired us to work together – collaborating on ideas, exhibitions and events leading up to the launch of Wink Hotels , scheduled for later this year.
Duong Do, Founder and CEO of Toon says “We believe that sharing – from office’s utilities to services – is not just about cost savings, but rather a manifestation of civil participation in a modern society. Embodying that spirit, Toong was born, pioneering the concept of coworking space, despite many doubts about the practicality of the model in an emerging market like Vietnam.”
Following the amazing response we received from local photographers after we launched the Wink Photography Competition 2018, we knew that the photos deserved more than just a re-share on Instagram or a shared link on Facebook.
Through the Eyes of Wink was our collaborative exhibition hosted at Toong Minh Khai, Saigon, from 18 February to 18 March 2019. The concept of Indochine 2.0 was expertly curated by our fans themselves – proving that it’s more than just an idea. It’s a movement. A revolution.
Toong utilized their spaces, combining nature and striking photography in our Wink Photography Competition Exhibition attracted so many to their coworking space they decided to continue the exhibition in another one of their spaces in Saigon.
The Wink Photo Competition Exhibition – Through The Eyes of Wink – has now moved and will be featured at one of Toong’s other locations. Find the photos mounted of the walls of Toong Ham Nghi, District 1 from 18 March 2019. This scaled-down exhibition will be on display for roughly three months.
Wink is honored to have such a positive response, but it was all thanks to you – our fans. Make sure to follow us for all our updates on what’s happening across Vietnam, along with Indochine 2.0-style art, music, culture and of course our soon-to-be-opened hotels!
