Exhibition of prototypes for “Heritage is Innovation”

Heritage is Innovation

Design Trust Futures Studio 2019

Proud to be a part of the Design Trust Futures Studio 2019 looking at the theme “Heritage is Innovation”. March 25th 2019 we presented miniatures and prototype sketches of our future project about Tiger Balm Gardens at Haw Par Mansion.

“In 2019, the theme and concept of Design Trust Futures Studio (DTFS) is ‘HERITAGE IS INNOVATION’. With this focus, DTFS 2019 curates new conversations and site-specific objects with Hong Kong-based designers, many of whom have been involved in Design Trust as grant recipients and designer mentees over the past years. Check out our Design Prototypes Preview at the historic 1936 Haw Par Mansion in Tai Hang, and explore how they can extend to other cultures and communities beyond Hong Kong.”

Taking on the alternate role of contemporary archaeologists, alchemists and designers we are experimenting with ceramic and textile in the making of sculptural objects to incite visitors of Haw Par Mansion to look, travel, wander and dwell into a reinterpreted microcosm of the lost Tiger Balm Gardens.
Called “Terra Mobile”, our project contains multi-layered narratives that explore with wit and nuance the didactic, sculptural, unconventional yet traditional qualities of Aw Boon Haw’s visionary wonderland.
Investigating the possibilities of using waste threads from Tai Ping’s production line in the making of a new clay body we intend to fashion a cognitive, playful and poetic rendition of the garden’s landscape elements tracing their lineage to weave a thread between past, present and future and activate the gardens of Haw Par Mansion.

Designers: Adonian Chan (Co-founder, Trilingua Design), Elaine Yan Ling Ng (Founder, The Fabrick Lab), Florian Wegenast and Christine Lew (Co-founder, Studio Florian + Christine), Ire Tsui, Michael Leung and Rony Chan (Co-founders, Design*Lab), Julie Progin and Jesse Mclin (Co-founders, Julie & Jesse), Polly Ho and Andy Wong (Co-founders, Loom Loop), Sharon de Lyster (Founder, Narrative Made), and Xavier Tsang (Founder, BeCandle)

Mentors: Alexander Groves and Azusa Murakami(Co-founders, Studio Swine), Brendan Cormier (Senior Curator, Victoria & Albert Museum), Douglas Young(CEO & Co-founder, GOD), Hunter Tura (President and Chief Executive Officer, Bruce Mau Design), Irene Lai and Frank Leung (Director and Founder/ Principal via.), Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu (Founding Partners, Neri and Hu), Michael Young (Founder, Michael Young Studio) and Puay-Peng Ho (Head of Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore)

Programme partner: Tai Ping, and advisor Roger Wu (Executive Director, Project Development, Haw Par Music Foundation).
