At One Plus Partnership’s new office in Hong Kong, designers Ajax Law and Virginia Lung integrate ‘garbage’ into a sustainable design theme

Multi award-winning Hong Kong interior designers Ajax Law and Virginia Lung – both of whom are judges in the Students category at the Perspective Awards 2013 – have styled their new One Plus Partnership office in what they consider the hottest design trend for the future – ‘up-cycling’ waste material and ‘re-cycling’ old furniture after giving them a facelift.

The sustainable theme of their design house in Quarry Bay extends from cement walls and flooring to leftover fabrics and recycled designer pieces. Plastic blue wrapping redecorates designer chairs, while fabric samples sourced from suppliers adorn a meeting room sofa.

Opting for an unconventional meeting and presentation room instead of a traditional conference room, chairs have been redecorated with thick black elastic bands, plastic straps and greenhouse sun-screen netting. Next to the chairs is a cluster of tables which allows for different combinations, providing flexibility and easy adaptation for different uses. This set-up, simulating a café, allows clients or meeting attendees to seat themselves in a relaxed and comfortable way while listening to a presentation or participating in a meeting.

Floors, worktops and the low partition walls have been constructed out of raw concrete to allow free space for creativity – and paint has been stripped off the existing concrete walls as well, to further extend the theme. Old closets once destined for the dump proudly show their age with washed-away paint and weathered scratches. New metal shelves were only varnished to prevent rusting – yet their original rough edges are deliberately retained.
