Their works will be exhibited until Mid-2017 at the ground floor of Hopewell Centre and Lee Tung Avenue, Wan Chai in the hope of highlighting Wan Chai's unique character and local culture. By collaborating with the design talents, who include Nick Gu, Derrick To and Terry Chan, the group aims to provide a multitude of resting surfaces for the public in the fast-changing district, that the public can experience how functional chairs blend into creative arts and to enhance the cohesion of the neighbourhood.
