The 6th FUNtastic QRE Festival has worked with eight young architects and designers to conceive eight distinctive public art seats, drawing inspiration from the fusion of old and new in Wan Chai

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.
