To recognise the resilience and passion of our designer community - especially our new generation of emerging designers who continues to innovate throughout the pandemic, Design Trust introduced DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade collection last year, and we are offering seasonal sale this spring to continue to bring life and hope to our community.
Design Trust Family Fun Pack (HKD 1,200)
As schools continue to be impacted by the pandemic and remote learning persists, finding fun and educational activities for the whole family to enjoy has never been more important. Several designers focused on this dynamic in response to the Design Trust Critically Homemade curatorial brief and created innovative and interactive designs that spark conversation as well as inspire imaginations.
This playful Design Trust Family Fun Pack includes ‘Alright’ which hopes to activate an imagination that extends beyond the constraints of physical space. A three-dimensional puzzle, within which each component is designed in the form of simple shapes and constructed from elemental materials. By design, these components can be put together in limitless constructions, allowing users to exercise their creative freedom to the broadest extent. Combined with elements of light, shadow, and reflection, this prototype allows participants of all ages to piece together their own installations and realize the space, colour, or even painting of their imaginations. Another playful kit ‘THE LEARNING HOUSE’ by James Shen, Zang Feng, He Zhe, Anouchka van Driel and Olivia Chen, serves as a metaphor and point of inspiration within the reality of life during the COVID-19 pandemic. As people remain indoors for their own safety and that of others, the home becomes the pivot of life, it becomes the school, the city and the world all in one. Inspired by their award-winning Plugin House design, the People's Architecture Office has designed a simple activity kit for kids to construct at home to stimulate creativity and exercise fine motor skills. Folded up, The Learning House serves as a little house-shaped protective box. Unfolded, it reveals a whole world from the small space of this home, a whole world that one can colour and make better – something much needed at this time.
