Design Trust is grateful for the continuous support we are receiving from the community, and for the opportunities to share our vision with the industry and the public. We are pleased to share the media highlights from our “DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade” Prototype Exhibition at House Studio of Soho House Hong Kong.

Since May, our “DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade” micro-initiative and Prototype Exhibition has been an inspiring demonstration of creative collaboration and enduring optimism amidst the challenges of these unprecedented times. We truly appreciate the positive responses that we have received from our design community, and the extensive coverage from publications such as Tatler, SCMP, Art Asia Pacific, Ming Pao Weekly, Lifestyle Asia, Ming Pao Daily, VOGUE Hong Kong, Esquire, Orange News, and Timetable, amongst other press media features in the coming fall.

An impressive print coverage from Tatler Hong Kong features The Learning House by People’s Architecture Office, Antibacterial Door Handles by Michael Young Studio, Hong Kong Brick by Studio Florian and Christine, Pocket Garden by Julie & Jesse, Tactile Family by NAPP Studio, and Escapism by Stickyline and Vanissa Law.

South China Morning Post’s coverage on the exhibition highlights prototypes from emerging creatives to established designers, such as SWEAT by Frederic Gooris and Paulina Chu, The 3D Printed (Superman) Face Mask by Douglas Young, and World of Interiors by Sam Jacob.
