China Clean


Hong Kong SOHO


Hong Kong—Pearl Lam Design is delighted to present China Clean, an exhibition of sculptural designs by Italian designer and entrepreneur Enrico Marone Cinzano. The exhibition will comprise eight pieces of luxury, sustainable furniture, many of which have been created in response to the designer’s visits to China, as well as exploration of its culture and connection with nature and the environment. Taking place at the Galleries’ space at SOHO 189, this exhibition will run from 22 March to 14 April, 2016.

“All great progress comes at a cost. I am a strong believer that products can be made better, more efficiently, effectively, and with less waste. The purpose of my work is to further the cause of sustainability in a modern and aesthetically pleasing way. Health, energy efficiency, and waste control are pillars of my design philosophy. I look to Nature for inspiration, using biomimicry and the proportions of the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence as my guiding lights.”

—Enrico Marone Cinzano

The premise of this exhibition is what Cinzano perceives to be a commonly held misconception in the West of China’s relationship with the environment. While generally perceived as inspiring mass production and movement, Cinzano encountered a country receptive to sustainability with a deep-rooted connection to the natural world. Through his explorations of ancient Chinese craftsmanship and an education by Pearl Lam about the literati and intelligentsia of the Imperial Court, Cinzano has designed this collection in response to and in celebration of a recently discovered culture.
