|Hebe Wong’s design is inspired by the Chinese culture of passing on. “Passing On” is a chair as well as a work of art that decorates a homo. When a user spins the funnel-shape chair and the hook, the red rope will follow. This represents the concept of passing on to the next generation.
Hebe is excited and grateful that her design is supported by the Hong Kong Furniture and Decoration Trade Association (HKF&DA) and S&C Furniture Ltd. from ideation to drafting and then to final realisation. She has learnt a lot about communication skills with the factory and adjusted design in accordance with the needs of the users.
S&C Furniture sets out to implement life aesthetics in home products. Hebe’s work combines tradition, art and aesthetic concepts like how a history book narrates Chinese culture and heritage through furniture.
