We are happy to share an event to take place soon in Chongqing, the “IDI – Italian Design Icons”, of which we are institutional partners. It will be a splendid collection of internationally acclaimed Italian brands, which have undoubtedly impacted the design of countless products throughout the world as well as the lifestyles of millions of people. Italian Design Icons wants to celebrate the excellence of Italian design, embrace the sustainability of new projects and share knowledge across various industries. Lectures with designers, architects, creative directors, CEOs and University Professors from all over the world, along with a high-level event with top representatives from both government level and the industrial sector, will make this three-day exhibition an incomparable occasion to share Italian excellence and uniqueness.
The purpose of the exhibition is to promote, particularly among the Chinese public, Italian industrial design along with mechanical and lifestyle brands. Throughout the 3 days of the exhibition from June 4th to June 6th, its guests will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive lectures given by iconic brands’ representatives and partners, who will share their ideas and vision about innovation for a more sustainable society and new methods of industrial design.
