In an interview, one of the Kohs mentioned that they are eyeing at the Philippines as the next place to branch out their brand. And after some snooping at the recent Singapore Design Week, where the Commune Team showcased their products, they have confirmed that they are opening their first shop in the Philippines. While this is good news on its own, we are pleased to announce that there’s even more good news ahead. According to their reps, they’re opening super soon, like mid-2018 perhaps?
