Shenzhen Creative Week is the most successful commercial exhibition in China’s furniture industry.

Shenzhen is a strategic platform to be able to connect with Chinese markets and manufacturers. For the second year, Pro Helvetia collaborates with its Shanghai Liaison office, to introduce three Swiss Design Studios.

Swiss Designers Selected for the 2019 Shenzhen Creative Week:

  • schoenstaub offers a collection of woven carpets, printed beach towels and various home objects. Collaborating closely with leading manufacturing enterprises, schoenstaub creates products that incorporate photorealistic motives, graphic elements and fine drawings.
  • Dimitri Bähler focuses on material experimentation and regularly tests the boundaries of «traditional» design: he explores different type of production processes ranging from the low tech to the high tech, sometimes mixing them together.
  • Egli Studio & Matthieu Girel. will present «Hypercollection», a furniture ensemble with clear and simple lines which offer a flexible solution to structure any open space.
