Rising Moon: an upcycling lesson from Hong Kong
The "Rising Moon" dome is a temporary pavilion set in Hong Kong. This steel dome-shaped is framed with plastic water bottles, lit up with internal LED fixings. Amazingly, this structure is entirely covered in plastic water bottles, the kind of containers used in offices all over the world. Almost 7000 PET water coolers were used for the Rising Moon dome, which hardly represent 15 minutes’ worth of bottled water consumption in Hong Kong! (via Materia, photos John Pilas).
Exhibited as part of Singapore Design Week, "Asian Subconscious" is a series of artworks by Singaporean graphic designers, curated by design studio Kult3D, in collaboration with Hong Kong-based store Kapok and furniture and product design range Industry+. Each designer, up-and-coming artist or well-known local talent, expressed their vision using images and icons from Asian architecture, typography, packaging and food to create their posters. Living far from Singapore? Don't worry, you can purchase these limited edition posters from Kult's online store.
