A Habitat& creative collaboration

Soleil Ignacio and Kris Abrigo for Habitat

Two views, one life

This July, Habitat Manila presents original art works by young artists Soleil Ignacio and Kris Abrigo.

The talented couple launched their illustrative prints, paintings, and art toys at the BGC showroom. Their different but complementary styles are seen in the pieces reflecting on home and their life as a creative couple.  Soleil’s relaxed, organic, and laid-back elegance is a response to Kris’ sharp geometric lines and hard urban aesthetic.

The exhibit also features the couple’s take on a studio home using Habitat furniture and accessories, styled with their own personal effects. The space represents their work-studio life when they started out as artists in a small flat in Manila.

Young and gifted: Kris Abrigo and Soleil Ignacio present exclusive art pieces on a theme at Habitat BGC.

The collaboration is the first for the home store. ““For us, design is a lifestyle,” says business director Walter Lim. “Artistry and personal style is expressed most comfortably in our homes and most private spaces.

 “We are delighted that Soleil and Kris are sharing a part of their personal story through this exhibit. It also features Habitat pieces that appeal to their excellent tastes.”

Habitat BGC will exhibit the art works throughout the month, with Soleil and Kris as direct contacts for purchases. Interested clients may also call Habitat BGC for more information.
