Earlier this year I was asked by Direktorenhaus Berlin to be part of the Handmade in Germany Worldtour – an international exhibition presenting a selection of contemporary high-quality products from 180 Germany manufactories, artisans and designers, such as Faber Castell, Rosenthal, Leuchtturm or Frau Tonis Parfum.
Our first stop was Tianjin, China, during Tianjin International Design Week from 13 to 17 May. The exhibition took place at the Beijing Cultural and Creative Park in an ancient building that combines traditional Chinese architecture and modern interior design. It started with an opening event – attended by a political delegation with representatives of the city and district government. Further lectures and talks gave a comprehensive overview of German design history.
Next stop of the tour will be Beijing, during Beijing Design Week 2017, 21-25 September.
