The Dots South China

Design magazine Connecting the Dots presents the Dutch design sector that will be presenting itself in South China in December.

By Editor /asdf 10-12-2012

Following several editions during Milan Design Week and the London Design Festival, the first Chinese edition is now being published and contains all Dutch activity during the Business of Design Week in Hong Kong and the Guangzhou Design Week. 

The full-color magazine contains more than one hundred Dutch design studios, architectural firms, institutes and companies active in South China. Substantive articles give insight into the Dutch design culture and the unique relationship between China and the Netherlands in this area.

The sixth edition of Connecting the Dots was created especially for the Chinese market. The aim of the magazine is to increase attention for the Dutch design sector in South China. Dutch Design is an internationally acknowledged concept; it's success can mainly be attributed to its quality and its great diversity. Connecting the Dots emphasizes the diversity of Dutch design and offers an overview.

The trading relationship between China and the Netherlands is hundreds of years old and is flourishing like never before. This publication, in both Chinese and English, maps out all relevant Dutch organizations and companies active in South China in December. Connecting the Dots bridges the gap between Dutch and Chinese producers and creative industries. The magazine demonstrates this with articles and interviews with designers and architects who give a first hand account of their experiences in China. Richard Hutten recalls his experiences in China and his involvement with Droog Design in China. An article has also been included by Xu Jingxi about the 600-meter Canton Tower in Guangzhou, designed by Dutchman Mark Hemel.

Usability is an integral part of the magazine. Especially since Connecting the Dots is being distributed at the Business of Design Week in Hong Kong (December 3–8) and the Guangzhou Design Week (December 7–9), providing visitors with information on all Dutch presentations, lectures and network events.

The first copy of the first Chinese edition of Connecting the Dots was presented to Alan Lo of Hong Kong-based design studio Blake's by Dutch Consul-General Wilfred Mohr on Saturday, December 1 in Hong Kong.
Connecting the Dots #6 is part of the DutchDFA program and was realized in collaboration with BNO, Guangzhou Design Week, Dutch Design Desk South China, Bureau Deleau and Haller Brun.
