Products available through the platform include accessories such as jewellery and sunglasses, home furnishings and furniture, and a range of upcycled lamps. Design 1+1 will allow a greater audience exposure to the world-class designers and artists who create from here in Hong Kong. The collaboration will also work hand-in-hand with other industries such as hospitality, architecture and interior design firms to promote Hong Kong design both locally and abroad.
