Design Shenzhen: a new exhibition layout by CCD

Design Shenzhen’s new exhibition layout has been created by Cheng Chung Design, an interior design firm based in Hong Kong, which, drawing inspiration from the physics concept of fusion, where light atomic nuclei converge to form heavier ones, created a new creative and dynamic itinerary.

Inspired by the idea of nuclear fusion, Design Shenzhen will serve as a gathering point for innovators and thought leaders across various fields such as design, science, technology, fostering collisions that generate a powerful surge of creativity. The new layout will offer an exhibition experience tailored for both industry professionals and design enthusiasts.

The highlights of the fair


In GOOD DESIGN SELECT, the “Design Anatomy” exhibition, curated by Shi Xiaoxi, will analyze the products that won the G-Mark Award. The showcase will delve into various dimensions of design through a microscopic-level approach that makes it possible to see details and curious facts about each work. In particular, products will be analyzed in their anatomy and ethics with a focus on forms, colors, materials, trends, inspirations, production processes, packaging and brand ethics. This method ensures that visitors gain a profound understanding of the award-winning works, offering a comprehensive and detailed experience with a strong visual impact.
