  1. Tino Kwan Wing-kuen — Light Labo: A Journey into Light and Shadow

    Tino Kwan Wing Kuen is a lighting designer known for creating unique and beautiful lighting designs for landmark buildings and public spaces around the world. For this exhibition display, Tino has created Light Labo, an immersive lighting design installation that transports visitors into a realm of fantasy and wonder through providing multiple lighting experiences. 

    Light Labo begins with a one-minute Dance with Light experience, in which the team ingeniously combines light and music to create an inspiring journey of light and shadow. Next, visitors will embark on a marvellous journey of light through the first video, Light and Lighting, delving into its history, significance and impact on our daily lives.

  4. Dennis Chan Shui-lun — Unleashing Creativity with Hulu

    "Hulu: Embracing Unlimited Design" is a delightful sensory experience designed by Dennis Chan Shui Lun. A master of crossing creative boundaries, Dennis has skilfully incorporated the playful charm of the “hulu” (meaning “gourd” in Chinese) as a unifying concept for his exquisite jewellery brand Qeelin. Through his creative practice, Dennis demonstrates the boundless possibilities of design by integrating the Hulu motif across diverse mediums, including sculpture, jewellery and even cafes.

    Traditionally symbolising blessings and protection, the Hulu has been the central design element in Qeelin’s captivating jewellery lines, adorning rings, necklaces and earrings. Dennis employs this timeless symbol as a vessel to convey messages that transcend cultural boundaries.

    The entire display showcases Dennis’ ability to break free from artistic silos and bridge gaps across various mediums and cultures with infectious creativity.

In this exhibition, Tommy will present three groups of works, each featuring an experimental display. The first group includes a selection of his previous brand designs transformed into all-white, 3D-printed works. This display approach accentuates the fundamental elements, structure and proportions of the design, enabling visitors to understand the starting point and core characteristics of each work. Another work, New 9 Sins, also employs an innovative display method. Through augmented reality (AR), viewers can explore five pieces of the complete woodblock print set from different angles, experiencing various visual effects. Finally, a field of Octopus sculptures is artfully arranged within a light-box display structure, offering a captivating visual experience. Collectively, these works exemplify Tommy’s design practice and innovative display approach, inspiring visitors to engage in creative thinking.
