Design Trust Futures Studio 2018 (DTFS 2018) makes visible the processes and positive role of design inthe culture of contemporary design and production. A cross-disciplinary initiative created and conceptualized by Marisa Yiu, Co-founder and Executive Director of Design Trust. Experts from different fields will contribute to the exploration of materials, production, and put forth the positive value of design of public spaces in Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta Region and internationally.
As an extension of last year’s inaugural Design Trust Futures Studio, the 2018 theme for Futures Studio is “PLAY IS FOR THE PEOPLE”. Tackling and promoting the ideas of innovation, leisure and play, which creates meaning from the people, for the people with human factors, ergonomics and physical designs in play. Four practical yet playful micro-parks will be realized in four different locations around Hong Kong.
