Design Miami/ Podium x Shanghai, the world’s leading platform for collectible design, is set to open its doors on 8-12 March 2023 for its second edition at the historic Shikumen compound, ZHANGYUAN, in Shanghai.
More than 20 exhibitors, including international and regional galleries and designers from Beijing and Hangzhou to London and Los Angeles, are expected to participate. The event is produced by creative consultancy Made in House and curated by Dr. Xue Tianchong, Director of Curating Design & Narrative Environments at the School of Design, Central Academy of Fine Arts.
This year’s event will be presented in three sections – Galleries, Podium, and Design Talks – with the theme of “Transcendence,” which will explore the power of design to elevate the lived experience, expand our minds and point to the intangible. Through this theme, visitors will be given the chance to see how extraordinary design represents more than meets the eye and has the ability to transport us beyond material forms to an expanded place of unlimited potential.
Design Miami/ Podium x Shanghai is expected to capture the very best of Chinese and international collectible design from the historic to the contemporary. As the design scene in China continues to flourish, the fair will serve as a platform to engage both Chinese and international gallerists, collectors, and design enthusiasts, offering a space to connect, question and be inspired. Jen Roberts, CEO of Design Miami/, said that she is very excited to see the return of Design Miami/ Podium x Shanghai, and she hopes the fair will be a platform for creative and cultural exchange.
Chris Shao and Jill Gu, the founders of Made in House, said that they are pleased to collaborate with Dr. Xue Tianchong to curate this year’s Design Miami/ Podium x Shanghai. They look forward to presenting various works from local artists and designers, as well as outstanding international galleries, with an aim to promote cross-border exchanges in various fields of design, and also to further support Design Miami/ as a platform for design collectors and enthusiasts around the world.
