Hong Kong Smart Design Awards

Designers' Inspiration Trip

Overview

Break the Cocoon, Sparkling Hong Kong 2020 (BCSHK)
 
Under the auspices of CreateHK since 2014, we continue to promote Hong Kong original designs and the awarded product designs overseas, as well as nurture local design talents/industry practitioners through “Break the Cocoon, Sparkling Hong Kong” (BCSHK) project. Awarded product designs are brought to the international spotlight, exhibit at the leading international trade fair – Maison & Objet, Paris, Ambiente, Frankfurt and other shows to showcase the creativity and excellence of Hong Kong original designs to the world.
 
This year, 23 awarded designers of Hong Kong Smart Design Awards (HKSDA) 2019 will join the Designers Inspiration Trip to Germany and the Netherlands for 8 days on 1 - 8 February 2020 / 3 – 10 February 2020. During the trip, they will get the chance to present their creative product designs to overseas buyers, explore business opportunities and build valuable business network at Ambiente, Frankfurt. Apart from Germany, they will travel to the Netherlands for cultural and commercial exchange, including design studios, design academy visit, etc. The Netherlands is filled with cultural art atmosphere, particularly strong in product design. This Designers Inspiration Trip aims at refreshing designers' vision with latest global market trends, not only to enhance their competitiveness in the evolving market, but also raise the publicity of local designs in global platform as a result.

The last but not the least, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the following organisations for supporting this meaningful project.
