Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. We’ll miss walkies with Janice Jensen today, as she’s mid-air somewhere. She’ll be back next week, live from sunny Nevis. At 10.10 we’ll carry on yesterday’s art theme, with more of a focus on design. “Re-edit” is a new showcase initiated by PMQ. It highlights work by young Hong Kong designers, whose work will also be shown at Milan Design Week. We’ll meet two of them this morning; Julie and Jesse (which is also the name of their studio), and find out about their mobile furniture project “Terra Mobile”. After 11.30 we’ll have more crêpe radio with RTL France’s man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova. And, at 12.10 we’re off to visit Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central. Join him on Facebook live to find out about muscular issues in older people.
