Capsule Lamp Pendant lamp with hanging capsules by Lam Wai Ming

The lamp was initially designed for a kidswear brand. The inspiration comes from capsule toys which children get from vending machines usually located at shopfronts. Looking up at the lamp, one can see a bunch of colourful capsule toys, each carrying wish and delight that awaken one’s youthful soul. The content of the capsules can be replaced from time to time according to your personal preference. From everyday trivia to special decorations, each object you put into the capsules becomes a unique narrative of your own, thus crystallizing your life and state of mind at a particular time.

Boom fashion brand roadshow in China
This is an exhibition design project for a trendy fashion brand’s roadshow in China. The theme of this roadshow highlights the youth’s potential to stylize their own image, and symbolizes the explosive noise this roadshow made in the public. Zigzag form was used as the major visual element, but with different configurations when applied in the booths in different cities. The structure of the exhibition booths were all “kit-of-parts” prefabricated in factory and installed on site. Some parts can be reused or reconfigured to form a new booth design for the next stop of the roadshow.

Flashlight indicator models were set to guide visitors to the entrance of the exhibition hall where a giant white camera model awaits. Standing in front of it, visitors can see the superimposing views of the black-and-white photo of early Hong Kong and the current exterior of the exhibition venue. Such setting implies that visitors can view the old Hong Kong through the giant camera and discover the history of Hong Kong photography through this exhibition. Indoor rotunda and house-shaped display stands were set to display historical photos as well as present an epitome of “Victoria City”.

As a brisk illustration of the brand’s features of “variety” and “mix-and-match”, “Trend Platter” brings out the brand’s accent via a wide variety of trendy design styles ranging from classical and vintage to modern and minimal. The vaulted ceiling in black presents fashion in a classical way while the checkered floor gives a vintage look. The white area shows minimalistic simplicity, while the modern zone is filled with the cool black and metallic colours. The custom-designed backgrounds of different styles are a creative approach to highlighting the trait of the brand.

In this 40-year-old building, original elements like window frames and staircase handles are kept and repainted to let the pale traces of time quietly tell the story. The client specializes in underground utility detection services. The company philosophy is “seeing the invisible”, so a modern and minimal central corridor is specially designed to neatly conceal the rooms yet subtly reveal their doors. Throughout the building, you can see nostalgic ambience, modern functionality and China chic coming into play to preserve as well as revitalize this historical site.

Weaving Space multi-functional headquarters by Lam Wai Ming

Weaving Space multi-functional headquarters
In this project, a used factory building was transformed into a multi-functional space that includes a showroom, a catwalk and a design office. Inspired by “cloth weaving”, an aluminum-extruded profile was used as the basic component of the walls. Different densities of the extrusions define different functions of the spaces. The wall of the façade looks like a large coffer from which all unauthorized person could be barred. Inside the building, extrusions of lower density are used to make all the spaces semi-transparent, so as to encourage communication between franchisees and designers.

This is the Control Centre of Hong Kong International Airport. The challenge is to efficiently accommodate densely equipped technical spaces, to cut down logistic interference from unexpected events, and to ultimately streamline the control centre’s operation. The space consists of 3 functional areas: Daily Management & Operations zone, Operation Manager’s Office and Emergency Management zone. The feature ceiling and the extruded aluminium wall panels are the distinct architectural features that also satisfy the acoustic, lighting and air-conditioning demands of the space.
