HK happenings…

The annual preeminent design festival in Asia, Hong Kong’s Business of Design Week, starts next week and I’m excited. You may remember me jumping up and down about it last year when they announced their design partner country was France. Speakers this year include Calvin Tsao (who of course, is not French), Jean Nouvel, Toyo Ito (also, not French), Patrick Jouin, Jean-Marie Massaud, Mathieu Lehanneur, Matali Crasset, and local rising star Andre Fu – to name but a few. The festivities actually kick off today with the DETOUR satellite events happening in locations all around the city – so check out the websites for further details!

    I saw Andre Fu’s work at the Upper House. We were there having a drink with our host in HK, and were shown a room. Have you seen one? Very minimalistic, Japanese, (with light coloured wood). Didn’t quite do it for me. Thought the bar was fantastic, especially on the crystal clear night we went, with the stunning view of the harbour and TST.
