DesignInspire was a 3 day exhibition event set in Hong Kong and dedicated to promoting the design industry. The event organizer requested an eco-friendly approach into elevating the show spatial design. From this, a new set of rules were devised for the design, these include minimizing onsite waste, repurposing materials once the show was over and avoiding creating unwanted material offcuts. Under the concept Inside Out plywood and hired scaffolding were predominantly used. The result was a raw and neutral look that juxtaposed the organizer's graphics and the exhibitors' contents.
The Salon de TE hall was as a marketing component for the Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair that showcased 140 international watch bands. A 745m2 introductory passageway with a multi-purpose space for product launches, presentations and cocktail receptions was required for this hall. To evoke feelings of new discovery for the visitors, an abstract concept was created under the title The Multiverse. From this a series of spatial installations was developed to depict the subconscious and visceral journey of an imaginary artisan watchmaker.
Held in Hong Kong, Centrestage housed 240 fashion brands within a 9000m2 area. To uplift the image of this show, the concept Future Tribe was used to reflect the event’s mission in discovering Asia’s latest contemporary fashion brands. A visual narrative was developed by studying a mix of traditional cultural roots, together with symbolism from various belief systems such as body tattoos, runes, hierographic and then intermixed with new technology. The entry concourse, along with the exhibition hall’s central display and catwalk were given for this image uplift.
To uplift the image of the 2019 HK Fashion Week (Spring/Summer) a concept titled Neon Nights was developed, by mixing fashion industry latest colour trends into elements of retro Hong Kong nighttime neon street scenes. Three areas were given by the organizer to enhance this trade fair into a marketing show. First, a welcome installation at the venue main entrance, followed by the exhibition hall main entry. Then inside the hall, a 300 m2 multi-functional communal space was created for fashion shows, seminars and informal meetings activities etc.
