Exhibition-cum-Seminar - Sustainable Upcycled Furniture
Fairs & Exhibitions
Running from 3 to 31 October 2019, THEi product Design team presented a series of upcycled wood furniture to showcase the regenerative design of our teachers and students at the THEi Learning Commons. The exhibits include furniture made from bamboo, used wood and chipboards from construction waste. The exhibition has demonstrated how to reduce, reuse and recycle obsolete material via creative ways. The exhibits have brought up questions and inspired visitors to reflect on the ecological sustainability of urban development and waste policy.
A complimentary seminar was held on 23 October 2019 at the Lecture Theatre 3 in THEi Chaiwan Campus. Given the waste treatment and disposal statistics of Hong Kong, participants in the interactive session engaged in discussions about the use of construction waste - mainly wood and bamboo for sustainable upcycling.
This exhibition and seminar are substantially supported by a grant from the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China (Project No.: UGC/IDS25/16).
