Interactive and Playful: Swiss Design from Zurich University of Arts

Why We Recommend it

Showcasing 10 distinctive projects spanning industrial design, visual communications, sensory explorations and interactive installations, this exhibition challenges the limits in the digitalisation of design. 



Held at the Hong Kong Design Institute’s Experience Centre, Interactive and Playful showcases a selection of student and graduate projects from the seven subject areas of the Department of Design at Zurich University of the Arts: Game Design, Interaction Design, Knowledge Visualisation, Visual Communication, Trends & Identity, Industrial Design, Cast and Audiovisual Media.

Presenting various possible realities surrounded by immersive media and intelligent objects, the exhibition explores experiences, emotions and senses outside the visible and the tangible. Highlights include the interactive kinetic light installation Through Momentum (pictured), Titan Arum, an interactive exhibit on the largest flower in the world, ‘the corpse flower’, in a rare moment of blooming; and Smell Forward, a fictional exploration of the scents of the past, present and future.
