May Wong - Creative Director
May Wong is no stranger to the design industry in Hong Kong. Trained as an industrial designer, May graduated in 1982 from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She embarked on her illustrious career journey by joining the eponymous Shimasaki Associates, a renowned consultancy firm led by Ken Shimasaki, the "Godfather" of product design. Here, she handled a rich variety of projects for international clients including Panasonic, Philips, Sanyo, etc.
In 1987, May spearheaded product development projects at Goebel, a well established German company, as Product Manager in the pacific region where she gained the expertise and later formed a design consultancy, Gear Atelier in 1989.
After shifting gears to focus on product development in 1996, its first product, the Cactus Orange Juicer, immediately put Gear on the map. This juicer was produced under the brand Living Gear, which later developed to a lifestyle household product line and made a big impact towards the design trend in Hong Kong. Not one to rest on her laurels, May launched another brand, Tapas, which produces innovative products and gifts.
It is our great honor that we have got many product design awards around the world. Our Cacti Orange Juicer got the first prize in product design at the Maison & Objet (Paris, France) in 1995; Bamboo Drinking Glass got the excellent award in product design at Singapore Design Award in 2002., etc.
