If all you’ve been doing is working and not playing, it’s time to rethink your formula to success.
On 17-28 November, ArtisTree transforms into ESKYIU PLAYKITS, a 14-day exploration into the importance of play, masterminded by multi-disciplinary architects Marisa Yu and Eric Schuldenfrei of ESKYIU.
And by play, we mean in ways you never have before – many of which can help you back at your desk. Here are the 10 things not to miss at PLAYKITS, from ways to play to not-so-secret secret details not to be missed.
Sure, you can come and de-stress at a special yoga session. But by controlling the music around your own practice space, you’ll also be contributing to a soundscape experiment reminiscent of Hong Kong’s own organic soundtrack.

Working late? That’s no excuse – take out some stress at a midnight ping-pong match, complete with an original Playkits technological twist.

Just when you think you’re out of ideas…The Hong Kong New Music Ensemble assembles a collection of sounds from eight historical Hong Kong routes to create something completely new with the eight tones of ancient Chinese music.
Hong Kong New Music Ensemble & SoundIslands live performance, 24 November
Exclusive music performance
Join us at ArtisTree with exclusive performances by the Hong Kong musician community.
Push the boundaries of your creativity and bring in your own Playkits model. We’ll exhibit it in one of the famous ArtisTree boxes to inspire others in the Taikoo Place community.
Sustainability is also at the heart of Playkits. With most of the event’s structural forms made from recycled materials, Playkits’ pieces will have a life after ArtisTree – like the flooring made in collaboration with the Nike Grind initiative, which will later find a permanent home in a local school.
Not Just a Black Box
ArtisTree will take on a new look and activity every day, taking your idea of participation and playing to a whole new level – at ArtisTree, in your mind, and infused right back into your work.
