September isn’t just back-to-school month—it also marks the second wave of international design festivals, an impossibly omni-terrestrial agenda that includes Paris, London, Vienna, Istanbul, Mexico City, Eindhoven, Tokyo and beyond. Beijing Design Week is easily among the more unique events in the mix, not least for the fact that it spans a sprawling, rapidly changing metropolis and is the single biggest design happening in the world’s most populous country.

BJDW2014-CAFAIDCore77 has been a media partner for Beijing Design Week since its inception four years ago, and once again we will be scouring Dashilar, CaoChangDi, 751 D-Park and beyond for the gems amidst the cross-cultural chaos. While some might consider leaked Apple components to be the most exciting ‘design objects’ coming out of the PRC, Chinese institutions and individuals alike have made a concerted effort to shift from “Made in China” to “Designed in BJDW2014-ZhangKe-MicroYuanerChina.” Granted, the homegrown design scene still has a long way to go, but it’s well worth witnessing its progress as a new generation of designers forge a path towards establishing Chinese design on the world stage.

Join us this month as Beijing Design Week runs from September 26 – October 3 at venues throughout the city; check out the Beijing Design Week website for more details.
