IED in Hong Kong at DesignInspire 2019

Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and in partnership with Business of Design Week (BODW), DesignInspire is an inspiring platform for global creative elites, design brands, design associations and institutes to showcase their creativities. An array of interactive installations, novel ideas, design products and projects is featured.

During the event, within the integration program supported by the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong and by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation named Vivere all’Italiana, IED will be part of the “Italian Education Corner” – designed and organised by HERE Connecting Creativity – with information for all the young talents interested in Undergraduate, Master, Semester and Summer courses.

HERE Connecting Creativity is a leading co-creation ecosystem based in Milan, focused on creative industries, bridging the design scenes worldwide.

Vivere all’Italiana is a programme that has already reached its third edition. Its purpose is to offer an integrated promotion of Italian culture, economy and lifestyle abroad by supporting culturally relevant projects.

Moreover, at DesignInspire, IED planned an exciting initiative: our booth will feature a VR station with Oculus Go technology (with technical help from Shadow Factory Hong Kong and video editing support from NOREAL – 3D Agency based in Italy) that allows the viewer to explore several Italian cultural heritage sites. This perfect blend of ancient culture and modernity is paired with a seamless cross-cultural emphasis between the Eastern and Western design scenes.

You can find us from 5-7 December at
