Architect and furniture designer Lo Chi Wing‘s sculpture exhibition is underway

Lo Chi Wing, architect and founder of Dimensione Chi Wing Lo, an Italian furniture brand,  is currently holding a sculpture exhibition in Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery in Central.

Titled Jianlong 1055, Lo's exhibition showcases 30 ink stones until 12 January 2016. He explains that the Jianlong era, which began in 960, marked the beginning of the Song Dynasty, an important period when it comes to cultural and scientific development in China.

During that time, painters and calligraphers usually created a personal ink stone. To create it, they had to go to various places for suitable ingredients. Lo pays tribute to ancient artists by creating a collection of 30 ink stones.

Not all havens are circular

"I hope the exhibition can reignite people's interest in ink stone, and equip ink stone with contemporary usage," says Lo.

Lo is not new to sculpture as he held another exhibition in the same gallery in 2013. “I don’t split architecture and design, they are interconnected,” he adds.
