Design Anthology - Asia Pacific Edition

Studio Florian and Christine


Hong Kong-based multidisci­plinary design studio Florian and Christine has created the Tactile Light, an exploratio­n into how traditiona­l craft and modern technology can be brought together in a contempora­ry light. Supported by Hong Kong's Design Trust, the Tactile Light experiment­s with combining old and new craft processes — in this case programmab­le lights and 3D knitting with traditiona­l hand embroidery. The light is another stunning example of Florian Wegenast and Christine Lew's research into heritage crafts to create what they refer to as ‘hybrid craft', a means of preserving heritage skills for the future.
