Sometimes I really enjoy taking manual work. Especially it is for a good cause, and to help friends. I love woodwork, and when Yanki Lee, of Hong Kong Design Institute DESIS Lab proposed me the opportunity to build their fair booth at the Senior Expo Asia, I was excited. Also because I had already worked with them on a Social Architecture workshop and I just love working with this team :)
And after 3 versions became a final design.
Tomorrow morning, many senior citizens will come and enjoy our booth. I like the space we have created is intimate yet easily readable, you can access it with a wheel chair as it’s got no step, it is wood : warm and so different from other’s booth where it’s all plastic and shiny. The fair will not last for long, only 3 days! If you want the wood, let me know – and if you do, be ready to wrestle with bad quality screws – they are easy to screw in, they easily brake when screwed out. The take down will happen Thursdy July 3rd, from 19:00. Come with a van and email me to coordinate.
Check out the really cool content of the booth too ! The very interesting work of these designers folks creative about the ageing society : http://www.culturalconnections.hk/?p=687
