Waterful is an installation consisting of a table with 1000 glasses full of water. It was unveiled at Detour 2010, Hong Kong’s annual design event. Organized by the Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design, Detour 2010 aims to showcase Hong Kong as a regional creative hub by featuring young and emerging creative talent.
The event was held in partnership with Japan and took place in a prison. Appropriately, the theme was “Not Guilty.” Japan’s sub-theme, dubbed “Not Guilty – Pure Water Design” attempts to reconcile our current environmental concerns – resources, food, water, energy – with Japan’s perfectionist aesthetic, such as their delicate eye for materials, simplicity and balance in form and shape.
