Design Infinity: Unfolding Creative Universes at the PolyU Design Show 2023
11 Jul 2023
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design (PolyU Design) welcomes the general public, design enthusiasts and industry professionals to join the PolyU Design Show 2023. The Show, which runs from now until 25 October 2023 in the Jockey Club Innovation Tower on the PolyU campus, presents an array of creative design works by new-generation designers. This year's event is particularly meaningful as it represents a triumphant return to physical interaction after the pandemic, providing an opportunity to celebrate the enduring spirit of innovation and creativity.
The Show is an annual event that has been a highlight for the creative and innovation industries in Hong Kong since the 1970s, this year showcasing more than 160 design projects created by students across various disciplines. It is open not only to those who are interested in design but also to individuals who are enthusiastic about improving their personal lives, businesses and societies through the application of cross-disciplinary creative approaches. The exhibits are the work of students from PolyU Design’s undergraduate programmes in Advertising Design, Communication Design, Digital Media, Environment and Interior Design, Interactive Media, Product Design and Social Design, as well as postgraduate programmes in Innovative Business Design, Intelligent Systems Design, Multimedia and Entertainment Technology, Smart Service Design and Transitional Environments Design. There are also cross-disciplinary and cooperative client projects on display.
Prof. Kun-Pyo LEE, Dean of PolyU Design, said, “As one of the world’s top 20 tertiary institutions in art and design, PolyU Design will mark its diamond anniversary next year. The School has been an important hub of design education and research for Hong Kong since 1964. PolyU Design has long been nurturing designers who are not only innovative but also keep up with the trends in finding solutions to everyday problems.”
With the theme “Grow to Discover. Expand to Show,” the exhibits address pressing issues that impact our day-to-day lives and reflect an amalgamation of innovative ideas and thorough user research. The projects not only demonstrate proficient application of design disciplines and technologies, but also reflect an understanding of social responsibility. Among the featured works are a customizable, digitised temple experience, a virtual time-travel experience to Lin Fa Kung in Tai Hang, a self-sustaining moisture harvester and a collaborative creative platform for DJs, among others.
