This week Design.nl reports live from the Dutch Design Generator at Beijing Design Week 2011. We bring you an overview of events, including two Premsela lectures on the future of food and communication in our expanding cities. We talk to Daan Roosegaarde, who has opened his second studio in Shanghai, about intimate technology, smart cities and how the world needs no more chairs.
