At Hong Kong Indesign: The Event, Exhibitors will be partnering with creatives to create inspirational installations in locations around the city. And after, you get to have your say on which you think comes out tops.
26 November, 2013
The Project is a major highlight at Hong Kong Indesign: The Event, where Exhibitors partner with designers, architects, visual artists – creatives in any medium – to create exciting installations that showcase products in new conceptual ways.
It’s been one of the most anticipated parts of Indesign events in Singapore and Australia for a decade, and the only brief we give is a theme. For Hong Kong Indesign 2013, the theme is “Rhythm”, which is inspired by Hong Kong’s unique life rhythm and vibrant design pulse.
Make sure you keep an eye out for The Project collaborations, because apart from showcasing high-profile, freewheeling creativity, you can also vote for your favourite collaboration after the event is over.
From installations made of exploded parts of sanitary fittings to ‘art experiences’ that give you a sense of wellbeing, The Project includes the following collaborations:
colourliving has joined forces with Chris Chow Design Associates, a Hong Kong- based design, planning and consulting firm, specially for The Project. The colourliving showroom will house one-of- a-kind installations and art experiences that demonstrate how anyone can bring together individuality, a sense of well- being and tasteful lifestyle into the everyday.

JEB with KplusK Associates

Lamex with PSI Asia
Raise your head to take in this installation. Cleverly playing on the theme “Rhythm of Hong Kong”, this collaborative project between Lamex and PSI Asia features a pattern of moving, reflected light on glossy materials on the ceiling, which is dictated by the ebb and flow of the crowd.
Seventhirtyam with David Trubridge
Follow the creative process of New Zealand-based designer David Trubridge in this stunning project – a lighting installation that presents the design process from creative concept to the poetic and elegant final product.

“These projects can stand on the world stage against any other kind of health project, and be successful. They aren’t Aboriginal projects; they are architecture for a specific community, that meets and exceeds the brief,” shares Kaunitz Yeung founding principal, David Kaunitz on the INDE.Award winning Punmu and Parnngurr projects.
