FEATURES:
At the 47th International Furniture Fair in Milan last month, the mood may have ricocheted from fears about the economic road ahead to earnest concentration on sustainability and gaga excitement about all that's arty and luxurious, but at least a few designers tried to stick with solid lines and good design.
High craft and contemporary design merge in a collection of one-of-a-kind objects from a new company dedicated to introducing historic methods and materials to a new generation of architects and designers.
On June 26, 100% Design Shanghai will open, six weeks before the Olympic games begin. As the first international fair in the country dedicated to contemporary design, it is a landmark event, organized by Reed Exhibitions, the company behind similar design fairs in London and Tokyo. New York design writer Aric Chen and artist-designer Tobias Wong, the exhibition's creative directors, sat down recently with AN to describe their plans for the show and their impressions of the contemporary design scene in China.
For young designers trying to launch a practice, learning the business side of things can be tough. Around the city, several design incubators are there to help: providing access to everything from prototyping machines and video editing rooms to marketing advice, these group homes are helping the next generation of artists and creative entrepreneurs.
