This is the 3rd year that Neooold collaborates with Design Shanghai. It proposes the idea of breaking the boundaries of design, art and craftsmanship, and merging them into an innovative creation. This year’s theme is “Have a Cup of Tea”. Both the UK and China have broad profound tea culture. The same items make different influences in different cultures, which is well worth exploring.
