  10. “Many Chinese designers in their 20s and 30s are purposefully avoiding the kind of design cliches that often become too easy to rely on. For instance, they might not just design a product to be red because that color traditionally symbolizes harmony, luck, and good fortune in China. Instead, young designers are questioning what red symbolizes before using it, and engaging in debates and discussions on the meaning of color in China. I’ve observed them trying to find more substantive expressions of “Chinese-ness.” ” Read the article at Smart Planet View the full article

    Ji Cheng At Aw12

    On 21 February 2012, renowned Chinese designer, Ji Cheng presented her 2012 autumn/winter collection entitled Zen Awakening on the catwalk at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. This is the first time the Chinese designer is showing her work in London to an audience of international fashion media and buyers. Ji Cheng’s aim is to expose the aesthetic of modern China to the international fashion industry. Considered the foremost designer in Shanghai, her new collection combines the essence of classic Chinese art with modern Western techniques and tailoring. Ji Cheng employs her unique design methods and her passion for Chinese traditional culture in a constant quest for beauty. Her new range reflects her continued pursuit of contemporary balanced design. The theme of the season, Zen Awakening, denotes that thought is not thinking, but it is relying on the inner senses to constantly examine actions, allowing a disordered mind to become focused. Looking toward the serenity and simplicity of the monk as a point of influence, the collection seeks to reach a higher state of unity. Zen Awakening invites the wearer to take a step forward and break free from a captive mind, entering the realm of the altruistic and pure. The very core of Chinese beauty is in the polarity of tranquility and motion, from meaning to understanding. The Zen Awakening collection uses the natural blended colour of cassock, touched with modern fluorescent green, and pure vermillion. Smoothly draped overlapping lines allow the precise spirit of Zen Awakening to emerge. “My work emphasizes the combination of Eastern and Western culture. I hope to use my design persistence to stir those who see the show, and I hope I can continue to pass on China’s traditional beauty by presenting a collection that is modern and contemporary.” - Ji Cheng This collection is presented in collaboration with JOHNNIE WALKER GOLD LABEL RESERVE “Keep Walking”, in a mutual belief of ‘heritage treasured, eternally flourishing’. La Vie By Ji Cheng is a luxury designer brand from Shanghai. It values lifestyle, womanhood, originality and the celebration of life. Inspired by a variety of elements from daily life, Ji Cheng honours the female form in a way that is both innovative and reflective. By applying its symbolic Chinese character, XI (Double Happiness) into most designs, Ji Cheng intends to deliver her essential message of contentedness.

  25. GrabCAD, an online community of over 120,000 mechanical engineers, has launched a design challenge tasking members to model an urban electric micro vehicle. The winning design, as chosen by automotive design experts and speakers at Auto® 2012 Automotive Design Conference (including Frank Stephenson, Design Director, McLaren; Gordon Murray, Gordon Murray Design and SébastienStassin, Kiska) will receive worldwide promotion as well as prizes directly from GrabCAD. The urban mobility market is booming. By 2015 thirty million scooters will be sold annually. This niche is so big that manufacturers are starting to create vehicles just for this demographic. Motorcycle companies are experimenting with larger and more feature-filled motorcycles while automotive companies are shrinking their vehicles. These companies are all fighting for the same consumers. GrabCAD has created a challenge where engineers can upload concepts in the form of 3d models. For more information or to view submissions, visit: http://grabcad.com/c...enges/urban-e-v GrabCAD is a community founded by mechanical engineers. It is also a place for engineers to share their talent, expand knowledge, find a dream project and work with tools and features that make life better.
