Knowledge of Design Week 2019: Designing Digital Futures (Media Partnership Program)

With ever-changing digital technology catalysing smart cities of the future, the key to creating a smart yet liveable city lies in the application of human-centred design thinking. Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) is featuring “Designing Digital Futures” as the theme of its annual Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) from 17th to 21st June this year. KODW 2019 will continue to inspire new ideas and discussion, looking into how human-centred design serves as a bridge between “digital technology” and “humanity” as we explore future design and urban developments.

“Liveable Smart City”, “Future Retail & Lifestyle” and “Digital Health”.

The forums and workshops feature a stellar speaker line-up including Ms Di-Ann Eisnor, CWeO cities at The We Company (formerly known as WeWork), who previously incubated new urban systems at Google's Area 120; Mr. Ren Yee, creative team member from UNStudio/ UNSense, the archtech company behind the planning of space design in Brainport Smart District, the “smartest neighbourhood in the world” in the Netherlands; Mr. Tommy Campbell, digital designer with SPACE10, IKEA’s research & design lab; Mr. Low Cheaw Hwei, Head of Design for Philips ASEAN Pacific; Mr. James Law, JP, Hong Kong architect and Chairman & CEO of James Law Cybertecture and Mr. Rama Gheerawo, director of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, Royal College of Art; Mr. Clive Grinyer, co-founder of design consultancy Tangerine; and Mr. Javier Mariscal, one of Spain’s foremost designers and the designer of Cobi, the mascot for the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games, to name a few.
