(Hong Kong,10 Feb 2021) Committed to promoting design education and facilitating dialogue among industry experts, students and design enthusiasts through partnerships with international museums, institutions and designers, the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) and the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) (Lee Wai Lee), together with the HKDI Gallery, are honoured to present its flagship exhibition of the year: “Dai Fujiwara The Road of My Cyber Physical Hands”, renowned Japanese designer Dai FUJIWARA’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, as part of their interdisciplinary
Dai FUJIWARA, who most recently served as Director of the MUJI to GO project, is a designer who continues to transcend creative borders, from textiles to product design and beyond. His highly impressive body of work comprises innovative multidisciplinary projects for prominent international brands, as well as for various educational organisations and communities achieved through his bold and unconventional ideas.
Marking his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, “Dai Fujiwara The Road of My Cyber Physical Hands”, held at HKDI Gallery from now until 28 March 2021, is a first-ever look into Dai FUJIWARA’s creative career that started with creating objects by hand, then gradually expanded into design engineering. Thoughtfully curated by Dai FUJIWARA himself, the exhibition uses the idea of “hands” as a starting point, and showcases Fujiwara’s long-time fascination with human hands as well as his continuous research and exploration of “future hands”: technology. Bringing to light some of his earliest works from his time as a student up to his most recent, never-before-seen creations, the exhibition is also a conversation between the present and the future, capturing Fujiwara’s journey through different realms, from nature and technology to design, art, community and society.
