*As a precaution due to escalated concerns regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, the exhibition will be reopened on 7/3/2021.

Bompas & Parr reveal the multi-disciplinary panel who will be judging the open-call competition to design inspired takes on hand sanitiser pumps. Winners will have their design entries showcased at Haw Par Music as part of Business of Design Week CityProg, 30 November – 5 December, 2020. This is part two of the original campaign which exhibited at the Design Museum, London.

As the city of Hong Kong emerges from their third wave of Covid-19, the competition journeys across the globe to relaunch within a new context - at Haw Par Music, a community centre for social, cultural and creative education.

Via an open call, with a deadline of 18th November 2020, all are invited to submit their entries in response to the two categories below.

  • Performance Amidst Adversity
  • Hygiene At the Heart of Well-Being

Shortlisted designs will feature in an installation curated by Bompas & Parr, which will be showcased as part of Business of Design Week CityProg and hosted at Haw Par Music, Hong Kong, as part of their Heritage X Music programme. It is hoped the exhibition will gain permanent residency here until March 2021.

Fountain of Hygiene wishes to unite the design community in the challenge to rethink hand sanitisation within the context of Hong Kong and heritage of Haw Par Music, in recognition of the local and global efforts in dealing with effects of Covid-19. We encourage applicants to explore the idea of enhanced sanitisation from a personal and broader holistic wellbeing perspective.
