HKTDC "RetroInnovations" Exhibition Opens at Times Square, Causeway Bay
HONG KONG, Nov 19, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the second edition of DesignInspire returns next month (6-8 Dec) to promote design and innovation through an array of interactive exhibits, creative designs and award-winning projects.

As a prelude to DesignInspire, and as part of a citywide promotion, the first leg of the "RetroInnovations" Exhibition opens today and runs until 25 Nov at Times Square in Causeway Bay. The second leg of the exhibition, featuring 15 different works from another group of designers, will feature at the Gallery by the Harbour in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, from 27 Nov-3 Dec. The project is supported by the Design Council of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Interior Design Association and the Hong Kong Institute of Architects.

Local Designers' Installations Bridge the Past and Future

Twenty-six young local design talents from various disciplines - including architecture, product design and fashion/accessories design - were invited by the HKTDC to create a series of contemporary installations under the theme "RetroInnovations" to pay tribute to aspects of the city's traditional culture and craftsmanship. The five installations displayed at Times Square will engage all the five senses - smell, taste, hearing, touch and vision - of visitors to the exhibition.

Visitors are welcome to interact with the installations and experience how creativity improves living, bridges the past and the future, and helps promote a positive spirit among city dwellers from all walks of life.

DesignInspire Opens Next Month

The second edition of DesignInspire, organised as part of Business of Design Week in Hong Kong, runs from 6-8 Dec at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Under the theme "Co-create a Happy City", the expo will gather design talents from nine countries and regions, including this year's Partner City, Melbourne, and will present a series of "InnoTalks" to showcase global creativity.

One of the highlights of this year's DesignInspire is the "Urbanovation" pavilion, which features innovative designs and the latest technologies, such as robotics applications, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) education and smart living, that are helping to create more liveable and more efficient cities. Another focus will be the "Hong Kong Creative Force" pavilion, which spotlights local creativity and craftsmanship.

DesignInspire is open to the public, with free admission over all three days of the event.
