The world we all live in continues to evolve and if things surrounding us are lagged behind, then our standard of lifestyle will thus be greatly affected. Luckily there are always some exceptional individuals around the world who are so gifted with tremendous talents in better shaping the way we live.
These highly talented designers are pushing the boundaries of our imaginations beyond the traditional means and creating technological innovations that are driving lifestyle changes and affecting our aesthetic perceptions. Good design is built on solid concepts based on our vision and comprehension of the world around us. Contemporary designers must set their unique sights squarely on the future. In doing so, they must evaluate not only how we will live, but also how we should live from every possible angle.
That said, the general public will be introduced to an exciting exhibition, Imminent Domain: Designing the Life of Tomorrow, that showcases 12 renowned and award-winning local designers, whose various industry backgrounds come from lighting, architecture/interior, jewelry, product, fashion and automobile, from 31 January to 31 March, 2013, at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center.
The exhibition aims to leverage the potential of Hong Kong design through presenting the work of leading local designers across different fields. Visitors are expected to see the latest masterpiece of each designer at the historical site of the former explosive magazine compound at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center and to appreciate how the city is drawing on a deep pool of past cultural inspiration to empower imminent lifestyle.
