Design Shanghai- next month

Design Shanghai, Asia’s leading international design event, returns one more,  presenting an impressive selection of installations and features at this year’s show, running from 9th to 12th March 2016 at one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Below are some top picks.

beyond object

Beyond Object is a London based design label focusing on desktop objects and home accessories. They believe functional objects can be designed and crafted as art. Nice!

Pingze

Pingze’s bamboo screens are eastern in style and history, yet perfect for a modern Western home. As more and more houses need dividing and separating, these do a gret and subtle job.

Frank Chou

We love this pared back East meets West table and chair design by Frank Chou Design Studio. The angle of the chair and the wood used, mirrors the curves of the table base.

zotem, kim thome

One of this year’s highlights is a new, bespoke version of Zotem, a dynamic installation conceived by London-based Norwegian designer Kim Thomé for Swarovski. Originally created for the Victoria & Albert Museum, the spectacular installation will be customised for exhibition in the new venue.

Although in part for kids and young creative minds, this book really can and should be read by all. Through ingenious collages and montages, the author looks at our expectations and how we experience art.
