Dezeen School Shows: Hong Kong Design Institute Students Showcase Diverse Range of Creative Work

Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) has unveiled its latest collection of student work, featuring a variety of innovative and thought-provoking projects. The school show includes a stunning collection of silver jewellery inspired by the process of making a phone call, a greyscale cityscape showcasing iconic buildings in Hong Kong, and an exhibition exploring the slower pace of life in the past.

As one of the most influential design institutions in Hong Kong, HKDI is committed to providing high-quality education and nurturing design talents to support the city’s creative industry development. With a range of full-time design programs across departments such as Architecture, Interior and Product Design, Communication Design, Digital Media, and Fashion and Image Design, HKDI prepares students for the demands of the 21st century workplace.

One standout project from the school show is “A Moment” by Chu Tim Kimbo Wong. This film pays tribute to the lost golden age of Hong Kong cinema, which once captivated audiences worldwide. Wong’s aim is to remind viewers to enjoy the journey of life, even if the outcome may not be satisfying. Another project, titled “The Call of Nyarlathotep” by Him Ching Yuen, showcases the captivating nature of tabletop role-playing games through an animated story that incorporates elements of terror and horror.

Pak Ching Ngai’s “Serendipity – Sensory Space, Sensory Attitude” design offers a soothing environment for students to gain inspiration and release stress. Through the clever use of light and shadow, this design provides a unique emotional experience that can be applied not only in schools but also in other settings such as offices, hospitals, and homes. Similarly, Wing Yan Ng’s exhibition, “Serendipity – A Chance Encounter,” recreates the slow-paced experience of ancient times and promotes social interaction while providing visitors with an opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture.

Chi Yin Fung’s “LifLin & Boundaryless” project incorporates sports elements into furniture design, promoting a healthier lifestyle and bringing people closer together. The connection between furniture and physical activity supports the LOHAS movement and encourages individuals to prioritize their quality of life. Additionally, Tsz Yu Kwong’s “Have a Call” collection of jewellery aims to evoke wearers’ memories of communicating with a special someone, showcasing the different emotions and interactions involved in a phone conversation.

The school show also features a music production project by Wang Lik Fu titled “Midnight Reverie,” which creates a dreamlike atmosphere with a romantic mix of R&B and compound tempo. Justin Lik Tsz Lee’s “The Portrait of Architecture” showcases the individuality and character of iconic buildings in Hong Kong through carefully captured angles and architectural lines.

The latest collection of student work from HKDI demonstrates the institution’s commitment to fostering creativity and innovation among its students. Through a diverse range of projects that explore various mediums, HKDI is equipping its students with the skills and knowledge necessary for success in the ever-evolving design industry.
