Design Shanghai 2024 Forum Schedule



Creating Treasures in Times of Overconsumption


According to the Federal Statistical Office, the average German owns around 10,000 things, while an average household in Germany 100 years ago had around 180 items.

Far too often today we consume products without sense or reason, without questioning their meaning and usefulness.

Fast Food, Fast Fashion and Fast Design are opposed to traditional craftsmanship and its manufacturers. 

We must change our behavior and recognize our responsibility as designers and producers as well as consumers.
