Inverse / Tension at The Hong Kong Interior Design Week 2022

Inverse / Tension

Hong Kong’s urban environment is complex and highly contrasted with a strong presence of neo-vernacular architecture. Typically, spaces are built and evolve by accumulation according to the needs of the various occupants and users which results in organic stratifications of the built environment.

Worn down buildings with a cluster of signboards, juxtaposition of dissonant colours, neon lights, dripping AC condensers and exposed pipe-works translate into an environment in which we can read different layers, historical, urban, functional and sometimes nature makes its way back and grabs back its legitimate share of the city.

 Through subtle symbolism we pay tribute to Hong Kong’s Chinese legacy.

The mirror as well as the Foo Lion dogs incarnating duality and contrast, power and strength complemented by gentleness and wisdom. The Female is positioned on the right looking into the guests, while the Male appears as the Females reflection in the mirror.

Wooden structure, evoking Chinese traditional carpentry blends in the dark wood background, the base voluntarily “disappears” to sublimates and supports our “Inverse / Tension” to

become object of contemplation.

“Inverse / Tension” mirrors and invites you to explore the beautiful internal spaces that can be found in some of Hong Kong’s unassuming buildings. Through the power of interior design, we are able to transform these spaces, into unexpected beauty and poetry.

The imperfect texture of the concrete block juxtaposed with the polished brass metal incarnates the potential of each interior space we are given. This contrast stands for the hidden and contrasted beauty in Hong Kong that you cannot find in other cities in the world.

香港城市予人一種中西結合, 錯綜複雜, 充滿新舊文化及具有強烈對比的面貌。
