The Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association (HKF&DA) was incepted in 1955. HKF&DA is a non-profit organisation with the longest history in and most representative of the Hong Kong furniture industry. HKF&DA has been providing constant support to the furniture design students. Not only did they share the creative concepts and production challenges of the industry with the students, but they also sponsored design graduates for the production of their final-year projects of 1: 1 scale.
Under the premise of「DesignXcel」to encourage large-scale company-school collaboration, among the many works of HKDI design graduates, the “Bondary Sofa” design has stood out particularly as a collaborative product between HKF&DA Executive Vice Chairman Gary Lui’s S&C Furniture Ltd. and the design graduate Eva Li. The success of Bondary Sofa owes much to Gary’s professional guidance and advices for the prototype production of the furniture piece.
S&C Furniture Ltd. was established in 2000, committed to develop and market household furniture and dedicated to infiltrate lifestyle aesthetics and environmental concepts into household products. The design concept of “Bondary Sofa” is to tighten the bonds within a family, and concentrate all work or other leisure activities in the living room, that is when Janice’s design synchronises with S&C Furniture’s purpose. As we get older and our workload becomes increasingly heavier, the time and space devoted to a full family reunion become less and less. The sofa has hence become an important tool for the family’s communication.
To reinforce the interaction and exchange between family members, Janice Li employs a two-way sofa design with handy control for the seated one to tilt forward or backward to increase exchanges. The back of the sofa is connected to a wooden surface for laptop or for meals, be it for work or for fun, the Bondary Sofa is a flexible furniture piece for the home.
