About the Exhibition

Design plays a crucial role in society in spheres ranging from industry, business and public policy to organisations, technology and the environment. It influences our communities, behaviours and lifestyles. From 6 November 2020 to 10 January 2021, Design Does* at HKDI Gallery will showcase a series of projects by international designers which seek to address topical issues and future challenges such as sustainability, ethics, connectivity, marginalisation, consumerism and innovation. This interactive exhibition will examine the responsibility inherent in the act of design and the designer’s multiple roles as a provider of solutions, humanist, strategist and agent of change. 

The issues raised by each design project are intended to generate dialogue, encourage participation and build knowledge that will enrich the transdisciplinary practice of design. 

Design Does* was co-curated by ELISAVA and Domestic Data Streamers and was co-produced by the Design Museum of Barcelona.
