Surprises on Sun Street
Art enthusiasts always love to wander on Sun Street, Moon Street and Star Street in Wan Chai. Numerous delightful stores and coffee shops make the area one of the best places in town for a chilling afternoon. On Sun Street, the stylish lifestyle shop Kapok can be easily spotted, which has a wide selection of designer brands, with the addition of a cafe and a gallery space.
From 26 April 2018 to 26 July 2018, DFA Awards is joining hands with Kapok on Sun Street to host a 3-month pop-up store featuring the award winning products of DFA Design for Asia Awards and designs by DFA Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award winner. 13 award-winning products, including book, temperature & humidity sensor, anti-skid soap and coffee machine, are created by designers from Hong Kong, Macao, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Cambodia. Customers can spend a couple of hours on digging a little deeper to find out the ideas behind each creation from Asian designers, and even learn about the aesthetics and cultures of different Asian societies. The bold yet playful thoughts from young designers will also surprise you for sure.
In 2003, the Hong Kong Design Centre launched the DFA Awards to underpin the role of designers in society and to celebrate design leadership and exemplary designs and projects with commercial success and impact in Asia, as well as to recognise the rising force of emerging designers in Hong Kong since 2005. DFA Awards has grown its international influence in Asia with five award programmes, including “DFA Design for Asia Awards” and “DFA Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award”.
