Object of Use: Making use of old. In search of new.


PMQ - Sept 2020


Location: Unit S503, Staunton Block A

Inspired by a column created by Ching Siu Wai in MAGAZINE P called Object Of Use (OOU), which explores the philosophy of design and creation through the process of repairing old objects and making them useful again. Going back to the root of Modern Design, the exhibition explores how modern design has influenced our perception of everyday objects over the past century, and how revisiting the use of old objects can shed a light on discovering new meanings in our daily and future lifestyle.



MAGAZINE P was launched by Associates & P Limited in March 2014, with Cultural Creatives as its target audience. It covers art, design, cultural and lifestyle areas, and is now published as a quarterly. MAGAZINE P also participates in various creative projects like book publishing, organizing talks, seminars, events and exhibitions.
