Rado is pleased to announce its latest partnership in the design world. The design-driven Swiss watchmaker will be serving as the official watch sponsor of Asia's leading design event, Design Shanghai, which takes place from 8-11 March 2017 in the Shanghai Exhibiton Center.


As one of the world's most prestigious international design events, Design Shanghai has set the standard in China's ever-growing design community. The event features the finest international design brands and galleries from across the globe, with bespoke installations, an inspirational design forum and exciting design network rounding out the expo.


The partnership is a natural step for Rado, a leading design brand with a longstanding tradition of teaming up with design events and promoting young designers through the Rado Star Prize. Rado’s innovative timepieces have also earned the brand more than 35 prestigious design awards. The Rado True Open Heart, one of the many standout Rado watches to be displayed at Design Shanghai, received the Red Dot design award last year – one of two Rado timepieces, alongside the Rado HyperChrome Ultra Light, to receive design accolades in 2016.


In addition to the latest collections, Rado’s presence at the event will feature exhibitions that explore the brand's groundbreaking use of high-tech ceramic as well as a retrospective of Rado’s milestones in wristwatch design.
