I was invited to a blogger event by HP at Gallery Hotel’s Bar 84. The special guest appearance is industrial designer Tord Boontje whom HP collaborated with for the limited edition version of the HP Mini entitled, HP Mini By Studio Tord Boontje.
Li Xiang is more familiar when it comes to designers, so I will just quote what she say:
This is his first time in Singapore, specially for HP Mini launch. His works are mainly nature inspired and highly stylised partly because his mum teaches art and textiles. He also bring this continuous theme into the netbook design. The white HP Mini is covered with white flora and fauna prints design by Tord. Embedded within the intertwining prints are more than 30 endangered animals. Tord also realises that HP has been greatly involved in environmental programs, therefore he suggests an added message, an awareness to be more environmentally responsible for these endangered species.
