DFA Design for Asia Awards Exhibition
MTR Corporation is joining hands with Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) again for the “DFA Design for Asia Awards Exhibition” from 11 – 21 May 2017 at ELEMENTS. The admission-free exhibition features selected winners of “DFA Design for Asia Awards 2016” covering four design disciplines - apparel & accessory design, communication design, environmental design and product & industrial design.
HKDC is dedicated to engaging the community through the power of design. In conjunction with a number of like-minded community partners, a series of design events comprised of exhibitions, workshops and other activities are held at different venues throughout Hong Kong. Supported by the MTR Corporation’s Community Connect platform, the DFA Design for Asia Awards Exhibition not only showcases design excellence but also enables citizens to experience how innovative ideas are turned into practical products and services through the creative work of the design industry.
Professor Eric Yim, Chairman of HKDC, remarked, “We are delighted to join hands with MTR Corporation for the second year. Like last year, through showing the winning pieces of DFA Design for Asia Awards, the exhibition enhances public awareness of the value that design and innovative thinking contribute to the betterment of life.”
Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation said, “MTR promotes art and culture through our ‘Community Connect’ platform, and will continue to facilitate the staging of art-related activities or displays created by emerging local artists and designers in our premises. We are very pleased to collaborate with HKDC in recognising inspiring design projects in Asia.”
