The New Original project in China

In a bid to copy the “original copycats” (China), Dutch design collective Droog have displayed copies of Chinese products at a Guangzhou shopping centre. The New Original project is an attempt to bring the idea of finding inspiration in imitation into the public’s conscience. Designers taking part in this exhibition include Studio Droog, Richard Hutten, the late Ed Annink of the Netherlands and Stanley Wong and Urbanus of China. Organized in partnership with Today Art Museum, Beijing, and OCT Art and Design Gallery, Shenzhen, The New Original project will be on display till 9th April.
