Design Society had its grand opening this month (December 2017) and aims to create a cultural platform to enable China to become a global design leader.
Housed in Fumihiko Maki's Sea World Arts and Culture Centre, Design Society has an ambitious public programme of exhibition, education and collaboration. It firmly positions design knowledge within its socio-cultural context and positions itself as service for society generally.
Design Society is currently hosting a joint gallery with the V&A, UK, titled Values of Design and was listed as part of a broader strengthening of UK / China creative partnerships.
The Values of Design exhibition will run throughout 2018 - more details can be found here.
