Studio Aubruino is a creative studio founded by two Royal College of Arts designers Aubrey Wang and Chih Chiu in 2016 in London. The studio since then has been involved in producing a collection of clothing, installation and the performance arts. Trough different media, their work is exploring the value of techno-fashion and wearable technology in today’s society as well as contradictions which come along with such technology. The ultimate goal is to develop the infinite possibilities for the future fashion industry. AUBRUINO studio has been privileged to participate in a number of cross-boundary collaborations with other artists and brands from a variety of artistic fields. Among most noticeable AUBRUINO collaborators are French perfume brand Nina Ricci and musician Kazy Lambist.
In June 2017, Studio AUBRUINO was invited to make their first public appearance in China. Under a mysterious tittle (Hu Lu Ting), AUBRUINO brings their “feeding machine” device, interactive performance for the audience. The exhibition consisted from two parts: a magical and surrealist restaurant. The first part constitutes one visual presentation of the story, devices and costumes, everything in a video format projected onto walls. The second part was an interactive, experimental performance in combination with possibility of audience to experience the feeding device.
Within this exhibition AUBRUINO studio tried to address important social issues, but they took an aproach of humor and a sense of absurd, which provided a greater accessibility to their ideas.
