The book presents the top design companies from the Netherlands with a base in China within the disciplines architecture, fashion and design. The aim of this book is to give an overview of Dutch design firms active in China (including HK) and their latest projects. It provides a snapshot of Dutch Design in China, moreover it will promote Dutch Design in an international context and help to make new connections.
The book contains around 40 design companies with their Chinese projects. Examples are Dick Bruna, OMA, Studio Dumbar, John Körmeling, United Nude, Mars-1, UN Studio, MVRDV, G-Star RAW, Bugaboo and Maurer United.
