Exhibition design in collaboration with
the Keep Moving Project and the Maker Bay
The Standing Desk Design-a-thon, organized by The Keep Moving Project and the
MakerBay, is a desk design competition aiming to advocate the health benefits of using a standing desk and to promote it as an alternative to the conventional sitting desk.
HIR Studio designed the display pavilion for the shortlisted entries roadshow. Composed of hexagonal modular display units, made with lightweight orange metal frameworks, the frames are easily transportable and re-arrangeable to suit the different locations.
The moving legs and desk legs are revealed beneath the hanging fabrics to highlight the "standing" idea.
The layout composed of a set of hexagonal modular display units. 5 units are to display the 5 selected prototypes and 1 special unit for display of general exhibition information.
The flexible modules can be assembled in a radial format for compact exhibition at PMQ and TKO Plaza, whereas in the more spacious office lobby at Nan Fung Tower, it can be transformed to a linear arrangement.
