It’s just over a week until our boutique designer sleepover, In bed With Designers, launches at the Mini Hotel. We can barely contain our excitement as Designers from all over the world are donning their pajamas and getting ready to jump into bed with Hong Kong’s public. It seems the South China Morning Post is equally excited and have featured the upcoming event in their magazine. Read the article below or visit the SCMP’s Post Magazine here. There’s stacks more information on In bed With Designers here.
One weekend, three floors, 50 designers. That pretty much sums up In Bed with Designers, a design “sleepover” organised by locally based BuyMeDesign.
The two-day event, which starts on November 30, is part of Business of Design Week and will be held at Causeway Bay’s stylish Mini Hotel. The aim is to give local and international designers the chance to display their wares, each in their own cosy room.

The international guest list includes Belgian furniture designer Xavier Coenen, mainland collective Pin Wu, Hong Kong’s Praxis Design and others from Taiwan and South Korea.
“The event is a unique chance for the public to engage with international designs and designers,” says Florence Giraudon, founder of BuyMeDesign, an online shop and design blog that links designers to international buyers.
A packed schedule on November 30 includes a drinks reception, guided tours of the exhibitors’ rooms, talks and PechaKucha presentations – a format in which people show and talk about 20 images for 20 seconds each.
In Bed with Designers will run from 1.30pm to 11pm on November 30 and 11am to 6pm on December 1 at the Mini Hotel, 8 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay. For more details, call 3618 5805 or visit www.buymedesign.com
