Upcoming Design Trust Futures Studio 2019 “Heritage is Innovation” Exhibition

30. 8. 2019

DTFS 2019 “Heritage is Innovation” Exhibition explores definitions of heritage, conservation and critical making through design. In its third iteration, the collective community of Design Trust Futures Studio (DTFS) has been creating new, site-specific objects inspired by the old 1936 Haw Par Mansion, heritage archives in Hong Kong and new methods of craft and making by exhibition partners, Tai Ping. On view at Haw Par will be a culmination of site-specific objects by Hong Kong based designers, who have been involved in the Design Trust foundation as grant recipients and designer mentees during the past years.

Curators, Mentors and Partners: Alexander Groves & Azusa Murakami (Studio Swine), Brendan Cormier, Douglas Young (Goods of Desire), Frank Leung & Irene Lai (via.), Ho Puay-Peng, Hunter Tura, Lyndon Neri & Rosanna Hu (Neri & Hu), Michael Young, Roger Wu (Haw Par Music), Michelle Chu (Tai Ping) and Marisa Yiu (Design Trust).
