Critically Homemade

A Design Trust initiative

Featuring over 70 unique prototypes by artists, designers and architects from around the world.

“DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade” has been a micro-initiative rooted in the idea of community, recognizing its essential role in paving a positive and productive road forward. This micro-initiative conceptualised by Marisa Yiu (Co-Founder / Executive Director of Design Trust) expresses innovation, reflection, lightness and hope, where small acts of making, and gestures of generosity expand to more support within and around communities.

Here are a few images of the exhibition.

Design Trust

Critically Homemade

“DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade” was born out of a survey within the Design Trust community and to date we have 70+ designers donating their time and creative works towards the programme. Participants include Design Trust grantees, fellows, advisors, Design Trust Futures Studio (DTFS) mentors and mentees, as well as its extended local and international community, to create a prototype (sized 20 x 20 x 20cm max) at home, that responds to and offers solutions to current societal and environmental challenges. Designers were allotted three weeks each to create their object and were encouraged to collaborate and design for a wide-ranging audience.

“DESIGN TRUST: Critically Homemade” will grow into a wider community exhibition and fundraising programme with the prototype launch at Soho House’s House Studio opening to the public on 21st September – 4th October 2020. Following the exhibition, our Design Trust Champion partners will be involved in a vetting procedure to determine prototypes to be further developed. These final objects will be part of a community fundraising programme of designer items and one-of-a-kind experiences. All proceeds will go towards the ongoing funding of Design Trust seed grants in relation to the COVID-19 challenges and provide immediate support to social/design programmes that will benefit the wider community.

House Studio, Soho House Hong Kong, 33 Des Voeux Road West, Sheung Wan
