Rousing the Year of the Rooster

The Year of the Monkey is drawing to a close and, for many around the world, it can’t happen soon enough. Most would agree that, broadly speaking, 2016 was a year of upheaval and chaos, from the death of seminal music artist David Bowie 12 months ago, through Brexit, Trump and the human tragedies throughout the Middle East.

But as the cockerel prepares to crow and usher in a new year, let us cast our eyes towards the dawn with optimism and hope for a better tomorrow. 2016 wasn’t a total washout, of course — just ask any of the winners at our A&D Trophy Awards last November, who included Pinnacle Award winner Steve Leung (who’s featured on page 110 as well) and a raft of outstanding talent, whose award-scoring projects can be found in our Winners Report section from pages 13 to 102.

We’ve also shone the light on other star designers, such as Christine Lam and David Clayton from Aedas (page 116), John Pauline (page 132), Mike DeFrino (page 134) and Paola Navone (page 126) to self-made success stories Ashley Sutton (page 138) and Rob Wall of JEB (page 129).

And if you’re looking for more stars, stand by as we begin our search for this year’s 40 Under 40 young design talents in earnest. You can nominate an upcoming hopeful in the fields of architecture, art, fashion graphic design & new media, interiors and product design — or nominate yourself!

The only rule is that the nominee must be aged 40 or under in 2017, and must be Asia-based. Head over to www.perspectiveglobal.com and click on the link there for more details.

Make the most of the outdoors

Whether you've got a lovely balcony or a private rooftop, outdoor living is an essential part of Hong Kong life. Modular furniture provides the option to reconfigure seating to suit each occasion, and the best outdoor furniture is constructed using marine grade materials, which can withstand temperature fluctuations, salt water, wind and rain and offers superior corrosion resistance. While the warmer temperatures of summer are still a few months away, don't let the cold spoil your enjoyment of your outdoor spaces — just add cosy woollen throws, cushions in fluffy, tactile fabrics and even an outdoor heater or fire. Now, of course, is the perfect time for a barbecue, as you and your guests can keep extra warm while dinner is cooking!
