Open Call for Biobased Design

deTour design festival in Hong Kong, 24 Nov – 3 Dec 2023

The world renowned design studio Biobased Creations (NL) invites designers and producers from Hong Kong to join them in their sustainable exhibition installation, Craft by Nature.

Creators Pascal Leboucq and Lucas De Man of the award-winning The Growing Pavilion and The Exploded View Beyond Building were invited and are in discussion with the curators to potentially create this year’s international contribution at deTour festival in Hong Kong this November. For this special occasion, they came up with an amazing exhibit installation that showcases how the future of crafts is biobased, made from nature.

In their installation they will showcase building materials, furniture and textiles all made from nature. 

They call upon Hong Kong based bio designers to join them.
