DXHK - BANGKOK Pocket Worlds
DXHK is a pilot design exchange programme starting with Bangkok Design Week. DXHK - BANGKOK Pocket Worlds will bring 10 designers/ 8 brands to show to the world -Hong Kong Young Design Power!
The POCKET WORLDS carries triple meaning.
From where we came, Hong Kong is a small, compact, pocket size city, yet being diverse, cosmopolitan, and worldly.
Here, our 8 young designers unfold the individual worlds, literally, from bags and luggage on the carousel. You are to discover treasures and concepts in each pocket.
Launching from Bangkok, our pockets are made mobile and light to travel afar. Soon we shall take off again, continuing a voyage for the 21st century Belt-and-Road.
The DXHK team is aspired to learn and explore with Bangkok the opportunities of a creative and sustainable Asia, where design is understood as a discourse for the future
MATERIAL CIRCULAR: The idea of material circular design is to redefine the product design system and process by improving materials selection and product design to help broaden users’experience and perspective.
PLACEMAKING: Placemaking is not just about designing functional space. It is how designers humanize the space by taking into account the interrelations between surrounding retailers,vendors, amenities provided, and activities taking place in the space to create greater value for the community.
CO-CREATION: The co-creation design goes beyond the social good designs by requiring an active engagement of all actors in the design process in order to create greater value for the community.
AUGMENTED EXPERIENCE: There will be no boundaries or borders in the future of media design.It will drive more interaction and greater experience.
CULTURE NARRATIVE: Visual design is no longer about designer’s personal expression, but embody culture element into the art form.
Curator: Prof. Alvin Yip
