Eat, Play, Live 🪀
PLAY LIVES is a Design Spectrum exhibition that explores, as it says in its title, the act of play. The show, located in Wan Chai, is open from now until 30 April, and anyone can attend with free registration.
Play is useless. Play is good. Everybody plays. Not all the time. So what is play? How does it work? Why is it good? How do we design for play? So many questions – is there enough time? Enter the rabbit hole: toying with the concept of play as a positive agent in people’s lives, the PLAY LIVES exhibition takes visitors through design for play’s wonderland.
