A folding stool, a piece of lucky paper, a red, white and blue plastic canvas bag, a dim-sum slip and a pawnshop signboard: all are examples of everyday generic designs with which most people are familiar, yet few know the origins of or the designer who created them. Through searching for the designers of these quotidian objects, this exhibition has become a platform to solicit information and knowledge about the material culture of the community at large.
