< 返回列表

In 2020, the global supply chain, industrial chain, and innovation chain have been hit harder than ever due to the spread of the coronovirus and the strengthening of "anti-globalization" forces. As an important member of global economic cooperation, Hebei is going through a shifting period of growth rate, an analgesic period of structural adjustment, and a period of digestion of early stimulus policies. We must not only ensure the steady growth of the province’s industrial industry, but also think about how to achieve a transitional period, turn crisis into vitality and challenge into fighting, and enhance the competitiveness and added value of the industry.

Since 2017, the Hebei provincial government has specially issued "Several Policies and Measures on Supporting the Development of Industrial Design", which regards accelerating the development of industrial design as a new development concept and an important measure to deepen the supply-side structural reform. In the past three years, the consciousness of understanding industrial design, attaching importance to industrial design, and applying industrial design has been formed in Hebei.

The 3rd Hebei International Industrial Design Week takes "Design's Construct of Pluriversality" as its theme, attracting 352 design institutions from more than 20 countries and regions around the world. More than 3,000 design boutiques and nearly a hundred industry elites gathered in Xiongan New Area to bring a cross-border and cross-cultural design carnival. In 7 days, 12 industry events were held. Through these wonderful events, we continued to enhance province' industrial design innovation, international influence, high-quality development of manufacturing transformation, industrial development and urban development in Xiongan.

Aiming at the travel obstruction caused by the global epidemic, several overseas guests, including the president-elect of the World Design Organization (WDO) David Kusuma, and the British industrial design master Michael Young, made the online speech through AR video. They made many golden sentences——

Golden sentences

David Kusuma, President-elect of the World Design Organization (WDO): "Meaningful design is very important. A team cannot design well, because the best result must be to combine diversity and multiple disciplines to create a multi-world."

Michael Young, the founder of Michael Young Studio (MYS): "Industrial design was combined with industry and engineering at the time. Design connects us together. Now it makes our lives better. It can help us develop our economy and generate employment."

The past ten years have been the golden ten years of design, and the next ten years will be the ten years of Chinese cultural revival. It's especially a great opportunity for design culture."

Feng Changhong, Director of Hebei Industrial Design Innovation Center: "Shenzhen is China's first design capital. People saw the dawn of design there. Xiongan is China's first future city. People will see the future of Chinese design here."

Sean Shih, General Manager of Red Dot Design China: For a city like Xiongan, the power of design is to think about how to embed social consciousness in the genes of the city. "

The highlight of the HIDW’s numerous series of speech activities is not only to bring together big names in all fields to gather in Xiongan, but more importantly, to stand in the city of the future, looking back on human development, and facing the global friction caused by the epidemic. With "Design's Construct of Pluriversality" as the theme, we'll use the power of design to break the limitations of current thinking, awaken thinking about tomorrow's manufacturing, craftsmanship, and urban catalysis, and jointly look forward to a better and diversified future world.

"In the current situation of epidemic prevention and control, the smooth holding of HIDW is undoubtedly a shocking move. Design celebrities from different countries gathered in Xiongan New Area of Hebei province online and offline, which not only shows the appeal of HIDW, but also shows the attraction of Xiongan to the world."

The design products he brought attracted the attention of three companies from Shandong and Hebei and signed three design orders.
