Restaging a Hong Kong style food stall “Dai Pai Dong” with design pieces and prototypes

Boyd and Rosén stages a Hong Kong style food stall "Dai Pai Dong" with their design items. The selection includes production pieces alongside unpublished concept prototypes. These include a pendant light, a reinterpretation of the classic Butcher’s Light in Hong Kong, a vase made by a German brand, as well as a steamer set, a condiment set, an ash tray and fruit platter produced by Hong Kong and Taiwan companies. The display is an embodiment of their design philosophy: new perspectives always come from studying how things are used and their immediate environment. Dai Pai Dong, which is an integral part of Hong Kong's streetscape and collective memory, is a source of inspiration for part of this work.
