Design Society is a partnership between state-owned developer China Merchants Shekou Holdings and the V&A – the first of its kind between a UK Museum and Chinese Group. Zhao Wong who is the director of Design Society said that this was especially important in China because China would be a new global designer, therefore consumers and designers should have thought how these values would define the future. These words had been said by Zhou Wong because with this gallery, they are trying to create an alliance of values for designers and the future design world.

The futuristic building of the gallery was designed by architect Fumihiko Maki who is the owner of Pritzker Prize. The main gallery will be in a gigantic 14.000 square meters, therefore you may build architecture inside the architecture.

The museum also will host a permanent gallery area for V&A’s gigantic collections of fashion, photography, furniture products, and graphic design, as well as theater and performance. Also the “Minding the Digital” gallery will reflect the digital effect in China and the rest of the world.

Design Society wants to find some answers for designers who need an address for expressing themselves and digital world.
