In partnership with HKDI, I have been chosen by ECAL to be Designer in residence and Product Design teacher at the Hong Kong Design Institute. As a Tutor for First year Bachelor classes and team-working with senior teachers, I have launched a Semester project focusing on the Stationary Product's topic. The students worked on functional mock-ups made of cardboard and paper, improving their manual skills. At the same time, I worked on a dining armchair using a bended, welded tube structure and a fabric seating. I presented my work-in-progress to the students, in order to emphasize the handiwork's significance in design. I was really pleased to share with these enthusiastic students, learn their culture and discover this city.
