Taiwan Design Expo

2017  September 30 – October 15

 
Betwin Ocean

The International Pavilion, on the one hand, employs the historical international trading system as a background to invite Dutch designers to trace back to the Age of Discovery to investigate the Dutch activities in Taiwan and India, to explore the religious beliefs and rituals in Taiwan, and furthermore, to co-create works with local artists and craftsmen in Tainan. On the other hand, the focus of the International Pavilion is predominantly on trends of circular economy, showcasing pioneering works in Taiwan along with creative works from the designers in the Netherlands, Germany, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan.

The show is divided into five sections – Material Innovation, Product Design Innovation, Manufacturing Process and System Innovation, Waste Recycling, and R&D and Branding. In addition to the static show of the design objects, the exhibition intends to illustrate the dynamic conditions of the industrial system as well as the design and manufacturing process.
