Design Trust hosts live relay talk featuring participants of its Critically Homemade exhibition

Twenty architects and designers will showcase designs they made at home during lockdown for the Design Trust’s Critically Homemade exhibition in this live talk moderated by Aric Chen and Design Trust co-founder Marissa Yiu. Watch it here from 9:00am UK time (4:00pm HK time).

The exclusive live talk will showcase a small proportion of the 70 objects created in response to a challenge set by Design Trust, a charity that enables creative projects in and around Hong Kong.

The initiative, called Design Trust: Critically Homemade, invited creatives around the world to design and prototype a 20cm x 20cm object that addressed social and environmental issues arising from the pandemic while they were stuck at home during lockdown.

Over 130 architects and designers including Michael Young and People’s Architecture Office submitted prototypes, which are on show at an exhibition at Soho House in Hong Kong until 4 October.

Young will present his prototype antibacterial door handles during the talk, while Anouchka van Driel of People’s Architecture Office will present the studio’s The Learning house activity kit for kids.

The will be joined by 18 other designers from around the world in the relay discussion moderated by curators Chen and Yiu, presenting designs including a therapeutic metronome, a series of miniature moveable rock sculptures and a concrete jump rope will feature in the live discussion.
