In general there is a biased view towards design in China. You might often read news about many copied designs, but you seldom see good original designs from this country.
There are actually quite some good quality design works being made here, but it seems that they are unknown to the world.
The main purpose of this site is to promote quality and original designs from China, by designers who work in China. That includes Chinese, Taiwanese, Hong Kong and other Chinese speaking Asian designers. Additionally we will publish designs made here in China by non-Chinese speaking designers, and designs by Chinese designers who work outside of China.
This site will also cover news, events and links to articles that are related to design in China.
All designs and news are from different creative industries such as packaging, automotive, furniture, architecture, interior design, fashion design, visual art, and more.
If you want to keep an eye on what is happening in the design scene of China, then this is the place to be.
We also welcome you to submit us designs and news that fit into this site. Use this contact form to get in touch.
