Chinese design delegation to LiU Malmsten
Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies is on the itinerary when a delegation from China’s largest design event visits Sweden.
Hong Kong Business of Design Week is the largest design event in Asia. This year the Hong Kong Design Centre and Hong Kong Trade Development have asked Sweden to be Partner Country.
The official Swedish involvement in Hong Kong is the exhibition "Design S", and various activities in conjunction with the design week in December this year.
As part of this, on the afternoon of 11 March, Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies will host a high-profile delegation affiliated with the Hong Kong fair.
“We had an enquiry, if we could show them our school. The fact that they chose us is a fine testimonial,” says Director of Studies Ulf Brunne.
“It would be brilliant if we could present our programmes at the fair in Hong Kong. We hope we’ll be able to do that.”
At Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies the delegation will get presentations of the four programmes, a tour of the workshops and a viewing of student work.
“Swedish design is on the up in the world, and we want to take that trend to the next level with initiatives such as the design exhibition in Hong Kong,” says Minister for Trade Ewa Björling in a press release that also states that the ministry will provide SEK 700,000 in project support.
