Philips Design Hong Kong

Hong Kong (historical), Hong Kong
We live in a complex and fast moving world.

Technology develops faster than human minds can follow.

The appreciation for the value of work, craftsmanship,
know-how and recourses is fading out.
The frontier between digital and physical is continuously blurring.

Design as a filter, language and tool can help to give orientation
and understanding to this fast development.

Solutions answering users’ needs with objects designed around them.
New technologies and innovations brought into people’s lives
by communicating with recognizable archetypal elements
to make the unknown understandable and approachable.
Focusing on necessary functions and features to archive them
in a high and steadily quality.

Giving a design the needed spark to create a character
rather than an anonymous object.
Aiming for the right friction of distinctiveness between
the user’s senses and the object.

Design should always push the boundaries of those attributes
to create valuable assets.

Because in the end sustainability starts with desirability.
