If Business of Design Week (BODW) is an international platform, exploring the link between business and design, then outreach programme Detour showcases how that relationship punctuates the vibrancy and culture of Hong Kong. Detour runs in tandem with BODW and promotes design events across the city. Aimed at drawing attention to the array of design elements present in our daily lives, it is open to delegates and the general public. It is the fifth annual Detour, and this year the focus is on local designers and students. Design events take place throughout the year in Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) has produced a DesignMap of the top events during BODW. For the first time, the HKDC has recruited retailers, restaurants and clubs to participate in a scheme aimed at encouraging them to actively engage in and promote a design element during BODW. Events range from product and book launches to exhibitions, cocktail receptions, parties and promotional activities taking place in 25 venues around the city. Some businesses will be staging their own exhibitions in collaboration with local designers. Others will provide prime space in buildings in Central or Wan Chai to exhibit the works of students from different faculties at the Hong Kong Design Institute. Works by furniture, lighting and fashion students will be exhibited at the Ruttonjee Centre in Central, while furniture designs will feature at Exclusivites, a lifestyle/furniture store on Duddell Street. At the Art Beatus Exhibition Space in Graham Street, Li Yibing's Meditation will be on display until December 22. Animation and motion graphics designed by students will be shown at Colour Living in Wan Chai, and the winning designs of this year's Hong Kong Watch and Clock Design Competition will be on display at Alessi in Prince's Building. Detour's Architecture Tour will be run again after its successful launch last year. Led by experts from the Hong Kong Architecture Centre, the tour takes place onboard a tram and covers the sights of this well-travelled route between Kennedy Town and Happy Valley. Trams have serviced the districts of Hong Kong Island since 1904, surviving many changes to the city's landscape. Participants will hear behind-the-scenes stories of the daily streetscape and learn about the city with architectural evidence. In the evenings, BODW delegates will have the chance to network at participating restaurants, bars and clubs. The Fringe Club is topping that off with live music. Free entry and drinks for BODW delegates will be available for a couple of nights.
