From works inspired by Chinese typography, tea ceremony, jewellery and reading, to furniture for architects or fashion designers, these groundbreaking designs will be exhibited for the first time at the show. Come witness the ingenuity and charisma of UK and HK furniture design yourself!

This groundbreaking design crossover fuses the essence of Eastern and Western designs, presenting original and exquisite works to the Hong Kong audience.

03. Young HK Designers

In the 6-month mentorship scheme, 12 renowned Hong Kong designers were invited to be design mentors, each guiding 3 or 4 mentees to create a piece of furniture. Among the mentees are emerging design groups from the fields of architecture, interior design, product design, graphic design, etc. Each of them contributed refreshing visions and perspectives, injecting innovative elements to local furniture design.
