Radical Design Week 2012
Posted on October 22, 2012 by waikit
Radical Design Week 2012 (RDW2012) is a ten-day exposition of Finnish future-oriented design and innovation to be held from October 26-November 4 2012 in Shanghai. RDW2012 is part of two major 2012 design events: Shanghai-D Week 2012 and World Design Capital Helsinki 2012. In addition, it is also part of the EU-China Year of Intercultural Dialogue.
RDW2012 invites you to rethink design with radical Finns. In Finland, design is embedded in life — it’s part of the Finnish DNA. RDW2012 showcases inspiring collaborations between Finns and Chinese through a series of over 40 exciting events, thought-provoking workshops, discussions, seminars, tailored events and creatively curated exhibitions. These events bring together the most creative minds in design, architecture, business, culture, education and research to rethink the possibilities for design and to create exciting new opportunities.
