20+ BESPOKE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FEATURES AND INSTALLATIONS TO BE PRESENTED
Alongside the main exhibition halls, visitors can experience curated sections and innovative installations. Chen Min Office has created neooold which pairs traditional artisanal craft techniques with contemporary design. Kinney Chan’s installation identifies just how cooking is all about colour and fragrance and different taste experiences, so is design. The installation Taste of Design seeks to explore this phenomenon, exploring the taste of design that we have never experienced through food. The Seesaw Roundtable located in the Contemporary Design hall, is a metaphor of harmony and balance. Created by Isabelle Peng Zhao, the installation aims to explore the relationship between humans, objects and society through her installation. Chinese architecture studio ORIA will present Touch, an installation that will reflect on society’s misplaced relationship between reality and the ideal. The perspective ladder encourages conversation about ourselves and real life. The new edition of China Design Trends Report will also be released by YANG DESIGN. Vital Pavilion designed by artist Chenzhu Sun will also be presented during the show.
