  • A new book, Design in Asia: The New Wave
    11 Nov. 2019

    Design Anthology is announcing the launch of their first large-format book, Design in Asia: The New Wave.


    This is a work design collectors and enthusiasts have been waiting for — a unique, unprecedented exposition of 100 of the most promising emerging designers working throughout the region today, published in partnership with Thames & Hudson and with a foreword by design curator Aric Chen.


    Design Anthology's new tome is available in a deluxe format exclusively from Design Anthology — in a hand-numbered edition with a limited run of just 500 copies, enveloped in a refined slipcase.


    Pre-orders are now open, for delivery on publication in April. The book will also be available in a smaller-format edition through retailers in 2020.

  • CHENFURONG x VEGA ZAISHI WANG in Ontimeshow
    25 Mar. 2019

    This year’s selection process included five young designers selected by members of the Rising Talents Awards Jury, and one young designer selected via a Call For Entry. Frank Chou, Chen Furong, Mario Tsai, Hongjie Yang, Ximi Li and Bentu rank as some of the brightest young design powers in the country today.

     

    Exemplifying talent, emotional depth and creativity, these six designers bring innovation and energy to their work. Some prefer a China-centric approach, others have absorbed multicultural influences by studying, working and living abroad. But all are committed to forming a new Chinese language of design. Says Jury Member Lyndon Neri of Neri&Hu: “With the rapid growth of the Chinese economy and the need for a cultural expression of its own, we see a large number of emerging designers that have started to create their own voice that deals with issue of heritage and identity.”

     

    Whilst their styles might diverge, one thing is clear: these six talents are setting new standards, whilst balancing creative versus commercial demands. “China has, for many years now, been the world’s in-dustry supply chain leader and is fast turning into a hotbed for design opportunity for both local and global designers,” says Luca Nichetto.

     

    “Chinese designers are realising the power of their own proximity to an established manufacturing base, and are taking full advantage of it.”


  • WUU in DesignShanghai
    08 Mar. 2019

    Chen Furong founded WUU in 2014, the same year as Design Shanghai, grows up with it.

     

    The year 2019 marked the fifth year of WUU’s journey in Design Shanghai. To some extent, it is through the platform Design Shanghai offered, WUU marched into the field of original design. In 2015, Chen Furong, founder of WUU won the first Emerging Chinese Designer award given by Design Shanghai in partnership with AD China. In 2016, WUU published its research results on cement in Design Shanghai. In 2017, WUU launched its first lamp collection— the T Series—and won the IDEAT Future Award given by IDEAT. In 2018, WUU adopted the slogan of “A Sense of Timelessness” and won the year’s Design Shanghai Picks with the romantic collection, the STARGAZER. Design Shanghai is a significant witness of WUU’s changes and developments towards maturity.

     

    In 2019, with the much roomier booth of 39 square meters, WUU is able to exhibit all its works, to better demonstrate and introduce itself, and to launch its new furniture collection.

     

    With the launch of furniture collection in Design Shanghai, WUU’s product line is greatly diversified.

     

    For the first time, WUU took up the work of design and construction of the exhibition booth, painted it in bright colors and divided it into separate scenes for the best demonstration of different products, giving the audience a varied experience and presenting them WUU’s aesthetics and graphic language.

     

    From 2015 to 2018, WUU started its journey with the design of household necessity and launched the practical T Series Lamps and the more romantic STARGAZER to gradually enrich the product line of lamps. But since the day it founded, furniture design has always been the direction WUU is working on to take. Through these years of research and development, WUU finally made its first step towards furniture design in 2018.
