Twine was founded in 2010 by two friends Elizabeth Tsai and Vinka Yang, both of whom have a background in architecture. They even contributed to the establishment of Taiwan’s fair trade industry by introducing and designing products that are not only aesthetic and creative, but also environmentally friendly.
This summer, Twine has created mini bird dwellings, Torii, out of colorful felt. In Japanese culture, Torii Shinto shrines are built to connect the worlds of gods and humans. Thus, Twine’s bird nests serve as a gateway from the bustling city to a green, enchanted land filled with joyful birdsong.
Fubon Financial Center’s yard is seen by Taiwanese writer Tom Wang as Taipei’s most romantic spot complete with a pond that is inhabited by fish and turtles. This yard is a popular meeting place for many who work in Taipei’s Eastern District.
