HONG KONG EDITION 3rd DECEMBER
Objective: Topic: Context:
Designing innovative concepts for bathroom-related products. The speciﬁc brief for the object to be designed will be announced on Thursday 3rd December 2015. Our aim is to get the set of young designers involved in the research for solutions that are original and innovative yet simple, and which make life easier for all of the users, regardless of their age, improving their interaction with the bathroom products. Aspects such as sustainability, personal wellbeing, accessibility and the recession form part of the everyday lives of the general public and, of course, this applies equally to their homes and bathrooms. However, the products available in this area do not always respond to these concerns. Another goal is to promote, facilitate and concentrate creativity in a display of fast and intensive work focused on bathrooms, an area that is traditionally not the subject of a great deal of innovation.
