The second edition of Design Shenzhen is taking place from March 21 to March 24, 2024, at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center. The event will assemble a diversity of creative design works, and the latest software and hardware technologies and exemplify the fusion of technology, art, and design.

The main theme of this year’s event is “the fusion of Design and Technology”. Not only is Design Shenzhen committed to maintaining a global perspective, but it also aims to delve into elevating the functionality of products, environments, and structures. Moreover, CCD, a design company based in Hong Kong, has been invited to craft the visual and spatial design for this year’s event. Drawing inspiration from the physics concept of Fusion, where light atomic nuclei converge to form heavier ones, CCD‘s concept revolves around the idea that the attraction between these nuclei brings them closer, resulting in the creation of a new, more stable substance. This process releases substantial energy.

Since the infusion of technology into design practices, our ongoing exploration has been centered around redefining the concept of ‘design’. Through meticulously curated content, a diverse array of design brands spanning various industries, and insights shared by esteemed guests, we aim to once again harness the power of technology to kindle design inspirations and propel the development of the design industry in the Greater Bay Area
