Design as One

S504, 5/F, Block A, PMQ

Intensive competition drives social advancement—and anxiety. The constant comparison between “us and them” can sometimes leave us baffled, questioning even our own existence and value.

Yet we are all individuals, formed to a large extent by countless unplanned, unnoticeable happenings. Though seemingly meaningless, these define our here and now, and sometimes the connections between individuals too. And although these moments and connections are fleeting and fragile, the self and its connections will constantly be renewed as long as we stay alive. This is the only proof that we live as human beings.

Breathe, and we will witness our lives come full circle.

A Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner in 2019, Jordan Lau graduated from Product Design at Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2021.

Lau believes that design is inspired by life and thus collectively defined, thus bringing new perspectives to the community. To create good design, in addition to fulfilling functional needs, he explores the potential of objects beyond their physical form. By endowing everyday objects with new values, he hopes to create designs that inspire better living.
