Interview with Ms. Tan Zhuo, exhibition director of DESIGN SHANGHAI

 

Q: Design Shanghai, as an international exhibition, has many foreign brands. How to balance these international brands and local market demands? For example, foreign brands are designed based on ergonomics of "foreigners" or using habits. These design maybe not suitable for Chinese people. For this point, what do you think?

 

A: Furniture imported is not popular. Now, it's fairly simple. We just directly sell the best furniture from Italy, France, and Britain. All furniture is designed based on ergonomics, and comfort level has no problem.

 

Because Chinese market has great potential, designers will research Chinese's esthetic level, living habits and using habits and make corresponding changes if foreign brands want to enter to Chinese market.

 

Q: How to orientate future development of Design Shanghai @ Xintiandi design festival Will it expand to one urban area or other cities?

 

A: Copy to other cities is next plan. Now, interaction should be conducted through all Shanghai. Our power is limited, so it needs many steps. For example, Xintiandi, this project is quite mature. We can expand the project to Anfu Road next year. There are many design brands here. They would like to cooperate with Design Shanghai to make funny things.

 

Design festival aims to invite foreigners and strangers to visit exhibition in Shanghai, and also see other places with sense of design in Shanghai. In addition, I hope that Shanghai natives can take part in activities during the two weeks, guide awareness and aesthetics of the public with power of Design Shanghai, and gradually understand what is design.

 

Q: Design Shanghai and your company will introduce the dreamer lifestyle to China on December, and both have exhibition of design products. How to put particular emphasis on two exhibitions in future orientation?


A: Some brands will be showed on two exhibitions at the same time. However, there is an essential difference between Design Shanghai and dreamer lifestyle. Design Shanghai belongs to B2B and mainly serves professionals, and is also open to the public. Dreamer lifestyle exhibition is B2C consumer show and aims at middle class. Consumers can easily buy their favorite product on the exhibition.
