When it comes to architecture and design, China is about to outpace the Western world – and be the world's creative superpower! We are proud to announce the successful opening ceremony of the very first iF design center in Chengdu this November. More than 400 guests came to celebrate during the Chengdu Creativity & Design Week 2019. The highlight of the opening included exhibtions by renowned companies like GROHE, Miniso or Design3.
Especially for design studios and manufacturers all over the world, this new creative hub offers space to reach the creative market in China. All companies, designers or start ups are welcome to use the 4,000 square meters of space for exhibitions and events, temporary offices and meeting rooms. The new creative space will function as a hub for creative industries and the interested public in Chengdu - one of China's most progressive cities. The integrated iF design café and shop will function as great meeting points.
iF has established the world's first iF design shop, in which exclusive limited-edition products are available. Through collaborations with different companies, exclusive products that are practical, beautiful and valuable are offered. Winners of the iF DESIGN AWARD are welcome to join the iF design shop, so that even more outstanding products can be provided to the public.
The iF design café combines food and beverages with design to create an exceptional setting. Delicious foods with local characteristics are served here, but more importantly the café also fulfills its responsibilites towards environmental protection: no paper cups are used at all, instead all cupas are reusable and eco-friendly.
To celebrate the design center opening, from 7 November to 31 March 2020 – the temporary offices are rent-free!
