French Community magazine in Hong Kong, Trait d’Union has celebrated December’s edition of In bed With Designers with an interview with Florence Coirier, founder of buyMeDesign. In the interview Florence explains the concept behind In bed With Designers explaining, “for a long time, we were looking for the right place and event to showcase offline, what we curate online.”
In bed with Designers at the Mini Hotel Causeway Bay saw a brand new and exciting Hong Kong design event. A buzzing hot bed of design and creativity was created that saw designers, design lovers and other enthusiasts drawn to an unconventional Hong Kong design event at the boutique hotel. Florence explained “We selected designers based on exactly the same curated criteria that we use online: innovation, quality, authenticity, originality. Every emerging designer was curator of their own room.”
But when the guests leave, the fun doesn’t stop. Jumping into bed together has lead to a number of exciting new projects all growing out of the initial event. We’ve created new collaborations, new discussions and perspectives, and new design spaces curated. In bed With Designers is expanding. The next edition will take place in May in Hong Kong and then the 3rd edition in October in Taipei.
