SHDW organized local furniture market, exhibit hall, concept shop, galleries, design studios, and cultural institutions to draw both professionals and general public’s attention to home design and life style during the short week.
On 11 September 2016, the 22nd China International Furniture Expo (abbr. Furniture China) and the newlaunched Maison Shanghai both ushered in a perfect conclusion for its 2016 edition at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (abbr. SNIEC) and Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Centre (abbr.SWEECC).
The four-day exhibition attracted buyers and visitors from more than 158 countries and regions all over the globe, receiving a total of 119,975 visits across the entire exhibition, up 17.75% compared to the statistics of last year.
We did some research and found a list of home design-related studios, stores and institutions who are not involved in Furniture China show, as well as the former exhibitors. We visit them and had a discussion of the cooperation. Hearteningly, we got many innovative ideas, insight and inspiration from those new participators.
It has been the great designer gathering in the history.
The 10 Chinese top designers used their products to respectively expound their understanding of life and home.
It was of an extraordinary significance, perfectly interpreting the contemporary Chinese style living space and a Chinese living attitude that is characterized by “wisdom”, “leisure”, “comprehension” and “awakens”.
Over 10 important guests, including Mr. Chen Baoguang, Mr. Han Jiaying, Mrs. Che Jianfang, Mr. Daikun, Professor Dr. Peter Zec and Mr. Henry Zhu, discussed about the situation inside and outside the industry with the attendees and deeply explained the connotation of design, the lifestyle and humanity ideas under the Chinese culture, Chinese spirit and Chinese attitudes.
