Dragon Tree by Media 10
One of the highlights of the Festival will be the “Dragon Tree”, which will use 3D Projection Mapping to present the famous Design Shanghai lead creative on the trees. Each individual image is carefully rendered to create a 3D effect by using two 12,000-lumen high resolution laser projectors, which will be accurately installed in the Xintiandi area.
Designer Pascal Bosetti from Munich will showcase his work “Moon birdy”, a unique outdoor accessory that is weatherproof and can work as a light source decoration, a casual seat or a comfortable footstool. Bosetti brings his creative work to Shanghai with a special edition of his popular “Birdy” pouffe designed for hülsta, winner of the German Design Award 2015, which can be found at the North Block Xintiandi. This accessory, shaped like a bird, is mobile and its light-hearted look makes it a great attraction for visitors to come and see.
TAN “Growing” immersion installation by Xinyue Du
The talented multi-field artist Xinyue Du will bring her conceptual art installation TAN “Growing” to the South Block Xintiandi – a selection of hand-woven art carpets and mirrors which will guide visitors through a fully-immersive experience to understand handcraft, nature and colour.
Perrier-Jouët will present “L’Eden by Perrier-Jouët”, an unexpected journey of discovery named after its famous Epernay Cellar. The garden will feature a specially designed Champagne bar, personalised tasting experiences with the Cellar Master Hervé Deschamps and a series of curated events throughout the Festival.
“New Eastern Making” by ZIZAOSHE is a conceptual exhibition about new eastern architecture and design, in which seven contemporary artists and designers will interpret recycling and deconstruction in the creative process. The works showcased at the Lakeville Gallery represent the integration of traditional manufacturing into contemporary design and material technologies.
