To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of TinoKwan Lighting Consultants, this exhibition is about how a Hong Kong boy became one of the world’s leading lighting designers. As there is a saying that ‘food’ can unite people, we are using ‘light’ to unite all our clients and designer friends, whom we have worked with during the past 40 years. Award winning projects will be featured.
3D Neon Signage Experience
In the 70s & 80s, the Hong Kong economy was booming and streets were full of neon signages of restaurants and shops, which became the symbols of Hong Kong. This unique night view of Hong Kong, with its spectacular high rises, is part of the Hong Kong pop culture. In tribute to this culture, Kwan created neon signages of over 40 valued clients, hotels and design companies, using mirrors for reflection, to create a maze-like installation, with multi- reflected lighting effects. The experience is one of Nostalgia of Hong Kong.

Light Trolley x Food x Drink
Apart from lighting, Kwan’s passion lies in cooking, specializing in Italian cuisine. He created the world’s first Light Trolley in order to perfectly lit up a carving board of meat or present glasses of champagne in perfect lighting setting. Hand made in Hong Kong, the Light Trolley has a back-lit frosted glass top as well as jewelry type of spotlights for food preparation. It only needs two hour’s charging for five hours use of its LED lights, where one can push it around anywhere we like.
