Nordic Design & Innovation Week Shanghai

Recommended Posts

On the first week of November, Shanghai will be buzzing with Nordic design and innovations. In a joint effort, the four Nordic Royal Consulates are presenting a programme of seminars and workshops around design, addressing issues such as how design methods can be used as a driver of change and how design processes can help sustainability. The New Nordic Food II programme will be present to highlight the innovative New Nordic cuisine.

On the opening night, Swedish chef Tareq Taylor, from the TV series Tareq Taylor’s Nordic Cookery will create a Nordic version of the traditional Asian noodle soup, using sustainably grown vegetables and Norwegian seafood.

On the following day, project manager Charlotta Ranert from the New Nordic Food II programme, together with Chef Tareq Taylor, will host a master class on the Nordic kitchen. 200 guests from the media, the catering industry and foodies are invited to a journey through the Nordic larder, with a focus on Norwegian seafood.

Later that day, Nordic food meets Nordic men’s fashion in Nordic Fooshion where Danish menswear label Soulland and food designers I’m a Kombo will be pitching innovative food design against one of Scandinavia’s most promising men’s fashion brands.
“A cross-creative collaboration between New Nordic Fashion and New Nordic Food makes it possible to showcase that the Nordic countries are frontrunners in both sustainable fashion and food”, says Elisabet Skylare, project manager for Food & Creative Industries, New Nordic Food II programme.

The 3rd November is Nordic Fashion Day and New Nordic Fashion, the communications programme under Nordic Fashion Association arranges a whole day around different aspects of the Nordic fashion industry.
