Business of Design Week Hong Kong 2008 / Local Dutch exhibition graphics and collateral. As part of the Business of Design Week a small group of Dutch designers in Hong Kong established “Local Dutch”. This brochure and exhibition had as main objective to introduce the group.
Everyone has cherished objects that are damaged or useless otherwise but can’t be parted with. Visitors were invited to bring a personal (damaged) object that had a special meaning to them. A small team of brilliant Dutch designers would pimp these object with a Dutch Touch. ‘Clients’ were thrilled to see their belongings starting a new life.
This self-initiated project was part of the Detour / Business of Design Week Hong Kong. A outline of Dutch iconic art was printed on a wall. Visitors could “Paint by Numbers” to complete the image. The process was captured in time-lapse.
