25 November, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 27 May, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
The Hong Kong Design institute (HKDI) is partnering with the world-renowned Red Dot Design Museum to launch Homo Ex Data – The Natural of the Artificial. The exhibition at HKDI Gallery showcases Red Dot Award-winning products and innovations that highlight the impact on society brought by technology-enabled designs. Featuring over 150 Red Dot Award-winning technology products, the exhibition explores how design creates a new reality by marrying human factors and digital technology.
In the present digital age, data is almost inherently a part of our lives, which in turn has a great impact on the design industry. When developing smart products, designers have to take into account technical functioning and the growing significance of data in addition to the human natural experience of things. Because of this exciting development, the exhibition goes beyond the mere presentation of current design approaches, but also poses the question of how design creates a new reality of life through the marriage of human factors and digital technology.
