PolyU students win Best Design Team at Tsinghua University Art & Design Month

With their innovative concept for designing a smart kitchen, four students of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s School of Design (PolyU Design) have recently won the Best Design Team Award at the Collaborative Innovation Design Workshop held during the fourth International Art & Design Academic Month organized by Tsinghua University.

The PolyU Design team competed against six other teams, which came from Academy of Arts and Design of Tsinghua University, School of Design of National Yunlin University of Science and Technology of Taiwan, Department of Industrial Product Design of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, and other three universities in China.

The workshop brief was to design an integrated concept for family kitchen which caters for Chinese lifestyle. The PolyU Design team designed “A Smart Kitchen On-demand”, which is set up to cater for the needs of modern Chinese cooking and dining behaviors. It is designed to enhance the value of the kitchen in a family, providing a platform to communicate, share and show caring. The design provides a solution making kitchen no longer a fixed space at home but part of the living room.

The PolyU Design team, consisted of four year three students of Industrial & Product Design, won the award for their outstanding performance of teamwork and design concept. “We are very excited and surprised to win the award from this large-scale design workshop, where other teams were highly professional and some of them were formed by master’s students,” Jack Chun Yueng -chiu, one of the members of the PolyU Design team said. The team was led by Mr Fred Han, Assistant Professor of PolyU Design, other team members included Yan Hei Ho, Tung Ting Kan and Bao Bo.

“We noticed that most people do not enjoy cooking at all,” Jack Chun explained. “We hope to design an environmentally friendly kitchen system, which could turn cooking into a joyful experience and at the same time, act as health consultant and cooking process assistant.”

The workshop and the fourth International Art & Design Academic Month was held from 10 to 14 December 2012 in Guangzhou, China.

PolyU Design student wins WADI World Design Challenge

Sharon Lee Chun-man, the graduating student of BA(Hons) in Design (Industrial & Product), won the first-place prize at the WADI World Design Challenge on her graphic design which best presents the characteristics of the product and expresses its socio-cultural acceptability. The product is a sustainable, autonomous, cost efficient and energy-self-sufficient tool, which helps to trace the progress of solar water disinfection in a PET bottle, detecting and calculating the relevant UV-rays of the sun, indicated by a status bar and smiley face.

“I was grateful and honored to be selected as the champion. I feel like I am moving forward to the dream of making the world a better place to live in,” Sharon shared her joy with us.

Graduates’ ballpoint pen design won international awards

Two graduates from the class of 2009, BA (Hons) in Design (Product), and their creation Origin, was honored by two significant international awards, Red Dot Product Design Award 2011 and Japan Good Design Award 2010.

The mixed-material ballpoint pen was a design inspired by the table leg. The leg’s simple converging shape revived the designer to explore the original meaning of a pen. On Origin, there is no pen clip that many other pens have, while it answers the need of anti-rolling and emphasizes the comfort of writing.

Pinky Wan and Paul Poon are the designers behind the award-winning product. The brand was developed under a local brand ten Design Stationery.

“We started our career here as Pinky’s final year project was found and appreciated by the brand’s founder,” Poon said. “PolyU Design provided us with a platform connecting with the design industry and we feel grateful.”

Congratulations to Pinky and Paul.

18 fresh brands presented by Design Direct

“ We are moving into a hyper integrated world in which all aspects of production — raw materials, design, manufacturing, distribution, fulfillment, financing and branding — have become commodities that can be accessed from anywhere by anyone.” – Friedman NYT. Nov 24 Column “Advice from Grandma”.

A small band of young & emerging designers in Hong Kong are changing the rules of the traditional industrial design industry.

Using the internet, self-branding & low-cost Asian manufacturing to go direct to the consumer, this young generation of designers poses the question, “are companies & clients becoming obsolete?”

Design Direct, an exhibition held previously at the SD Gallery on 25th May to 10th June 2011, presented 18 emerging design brands by the year-2 students from BA (Hons) Industrial & Product Design – each with their unique personality & an empowering portfolio of products. Each brand shows a simple & successful bridge between designer & consumer. We hope you enjoy browsing through the brands. We expect to see much more coming from these young design entrepreneurs.

The brands were created for the subject tutored by Dr Ernesto Spicciolato, Dr Roger Ball & Mr Michael Leung from the Industrial & Product teaching team.

Simplize, bags for cyclists by Industrial & Product Design Student

Simplize is a brand of bags for cyclists. The design of the fashion accessory is developed based on people’s identity. The concept comes from three main parts of Hong Kong, i.e. the New Territories, Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The bag shows which district the bicycle rider is from, thus reveals his identity. It helps enhancing the connection between cyclists from different places in Hong Kong which have different features of, say, environment and landscape.

The collection of Simplize includes a strapped bag, 3 small bags and a notebook case. For the strapped bag, the curved cutting is designed to fit the body and its strap is attached with a pocket for iPod. It also provides a pocket for sunglasses and a reflection tape for safe riding at night.

Jason Ho, year-2 student of the BA(Hons) in Design (Industrial & Product), is the creator of the brand. The brand was part of his assignments of the Fashion Accessories class which he attended in last autumn.
