Hong Kong Design Institute presents Waste Age: What Can Design Do?, a touring exhibition from The Design Museum, London. The exhibition strikes up some important and familiar conversations on tackling the critical problems of waste & its environmental consequences across the globe. It looks to expose and explore our society’s mindset on waste and how it’s contributed to the environmental crisis we’re currently facing. Revolutionary designers such as Stella McCartney & Phoebe English are featured in the exhibition to reveal how they’re transforming waste into valuable resources & materials.

The ‘Waste Age: What Can Design Do?’ exhibition also presents a range of examples from Asia, that cover a wide range of topics. Designer Kevin Cheung’s “BoomBottles” provide a playful example of the transformation of waste, turning an everyday item discarded daily in Hong Kong into a trendy portable outdoor speaker.
