about the designer
Chung-Tang Ho / Tong
The push and store cabinet designed by the talented designer Chung-Tang Ho was part of the second edition of Smart Deco. Smart Deco was initially presented in collaboration with the New York Friedman Benda Gallery at Art Basel Miami in December 2006. Each participant had complete freedom to choose forms, materials and aesthetics. All works show a fascination for high tech materials and advanced techniques, for human interaction as well as for re-using the waste we produce.
Smart Deco 2 emphasises not only the blurring boundaries between traditional craftsmanship and innovative concepts and materials but also between design and technology, design and nature, design and biology, real and artificial, waste and high value, rich and poor.
