Mr.8 ZTE Platinum award winner

Nowadays, Chinese chess i commonly played all around the world. But can you imagine visually impaired people from different countries and communities with different cultures playing the game without any trouble? The Public Design Lab of the School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, has made this possible with their design, “Chess for All”. It consists of a newly invented tactile system which overcomes the limitations of conventional Braille and cultural differences, meeting the call of society with inclusive and equal opportunities for all.

The Mr.8 (TD-U220) is a TD-model cell phone of ZTE, with its main target consumers being young students. Appearance, circuitry, hardware and software design was all independently researched and developed. Dominated by the industrial design ethos that shape comes first, the Mr.8 marksa an affinity with newer, simpler thinking as its design theme – the basis of ZTE’s language for customer solutions.

With a strong design sense and unique appearance, the Mr.8 also embraces green technology while focusing on users experience, leading to a design firmly grounded in both business and humanity.

Advocating green low carbon ,Mr. 8 refuse wasting ,inflexible and impossible.It reflects environmental aspects to connect phone packaging with USB line.When users disconnect traditional cell phone packaging, packaging becomes usefulness which both occupy space and creat waste. USB of Mr. 8 adopts FFC (Flexible Flat Cable) ultra-thin data wires which are compressed in interlayer of packaging thickness. Tearing the packaging along the dotted line and then you can get the USB itself. So the process of tearing is also openning the package. The teared USB package can be used when connecting built-in charger and the instructions are printed in two cards left.

Platinum Award winner of Successful Design Awards – China 2011

Shanghai Museum of Glass | architecture design

The Shanghai Museum of Glass is located on a former glass manufacturing and processing site in the northern District of Baoshan, Shanghai (China). The site covers a total area of 40,300sq.m and consists of thirty industrial buildings varying in age, condition and scale, with most of them still being used by glass related industries. The owner, Shanghai Glass Co., aimed to upgrade the site, and selected two buildings to become the Shanghai Museum of Glass to kick start the project. It is the first glass museum in China, and one of the first museums in China based on a modern, interactive experience exhibition concept. The museum covers an area of 5,500sq.m spread over two existing and two new building sections hosting the museum exhibition space, a glass art gallery, several workshops for both artists and visitors, event and temporary exhibition spaces, a café and offices, storage and supporting facilities. The Shanghai Museum of Glass building is the first and central building of an under-planning; glass, art, research & technology park that branded G+ Glass Theme Park (G+ Park).

Due to the projects (current) industrial site location and lack of public transport conditions along with the time investment to travel to the site; the Shanghai Museum of Glass needed a compelling reason for people visit. This includes the museum’s un-mistakable façade and its’ multi-functional design all within the context of the G+ Park.

The museum acts as landmark and main image for the project. Its entrance building is equipped with an outstanding façade made of especially treated glass, and will be the icon and “loss leader”. It is located at the main plaza, clearly visible for passersby and serves as entrance for the site, providing information about the project and leading visitors through the building or along the central axis.
