Designer Gathering Shanghai on the 3rd of July

Date: June 26, 2009 Categories: Design Comments: 9 Comments Share:

If you are a foreign industrial designer in Shanghai, then you are specially invited to join the ‘Designer Gathering’ on next Friday, July the 3rd. It’s been a while that this gathering has been held. Previously organized by German industrial designers Anke and Lars, but they both left to their homeland.

Fortunately, there are 3 German (again) designers, Boris Brawer/Jonas Vollmer/Tim Richter, who have taken the initiative to continue the ‘Designer Gathering’. Thanks guys for organizing! Man, seems like German designers are ruling in Shanghai 😉

We are going to meet on:

July 3rd 2009, 7:30 pm

Abbey Road

45 Yueyang Lu, near Dongping Lu


Oh yes, please add your comment if you want to join, as the organizers need to make reservations. I make sure that you will be put on the list of participants. And if you are local Chinese, then you are also welcome of course.

CU there!

    Hey Roger, I thought you moved away from Shanghai. Well, I don’t think there are any more designer gatherings like what we had before.

    Hi Simon, Claire,
    I am an industrial designer originally from sydney, recently arrived in Shanghai. I am trying to reach the broader design community here, and to date have chatted with a few local IDers.
    If you receive this, send me an email, as I would love to get in touch with you!
    Cheers Jack

    Hi Waikit,
    I’m looking for some forums and interactions with product designers, industrial designers, and interested to find out if Boris Brawer/Jonas Vollmer/Tim Richter will be conducting another meeting soon? If yes, please call me?

    Also wondering where you are working now, and would like to chit chat with you on the design scene here in Shanghai. If you have time or interest to share some ideas on Shops/retail design, let’s add this as agenda for the next design forum?! =)

    Hi, Waikit!

    This is David.
    I am not a designer but closely related. As well, I am not a foreigner but a Chinese. Anyway, I have great interest in ID designing and have a lot of friends acting as designers in Shanghai. I am hunger for knowing foreign designers because their innovative ideas always attract me a lot!

    If there would be another Gathering, please do tell me by my email! Really appreciate!

    Hi There,

    I just stumbled onto your blog, and am interested to know about the industrial design community in Shanghai. I can’t make it to the event tonight, but am hoping that perhaps there is some e-mail distribution list or something I can register on so I can be notified ahead of time for the next event. I’m a product designer working for a company that supplied the travel industry. I used to be a member of IDSA back in the States, and am looking to become involved in the design community in Shanghai. Thanks for your time! – Simon
