Fostering closer connections between East and West, KLC School of Design, in collaboration with ADMD, hosted ‘Design X’. At the cross-cultural exchange of ideas, top level UK speakers included Kelly Hoppen, Karen Howes of Taylor Howes, Guy Oliver of Oliver Laws, Sue Timney and Susie Rumbold of Tessuti. Jaco Pan of Minggu Design, Kinney Chan of Kinney Chan & Associates, Guan Tianqi of Evolution Design and Li Bo of Cimax Design Company represented the Chinese design community. Each designer presented a short, powerful presentation to a packed audience in Design Centre East. The inspirational afternoon explored how designers build on their rich heritage to create contemporary spaces.
