So here are just a few things which caught my eye in Shanghai.
|A brilliant book featuring the work of 30 graphic designers who are all in their 30's!|
|Furniture by Design MVW|
|Chen Hangfeng - Graphic Designer|
One of the highlights of my trip was reconnecting with a Han Feng - an endearing and seriously talented designer who I had met earlier at the Design Indaba this year. Han's work fuses elements of Chinese cultural themes and motifs but is contemporary and directional. Her recent costumes for Handel's 'Semele' premiered at Brussels La Monnaie Opera House to great acclaim and she is currently working on the costume for Italian opera Misfortune to be directed by Chen Shi-Zheng with music composed by Judith Weir and opening in 2012 at Covent Garden, London.
