About us
Who We Are

Founded in London in 2013, China Design Centre (CDC) was established by a mission-driven team of architects and designers with wide network globally. Provoked by the stereotype of ‘made in China’, we are dedicated to sharing the original good designs from Chinese creatives, creating an innovative platform between China and the UK to drive value creation, and providing professional services to facilitate the deep collaboration.

What We Do

We showcase the unique design vision emerging from a country with a long history and rich culture, and whose dynamic economy is generating a new wave of talent in architecture, arts and crafts, furniture, product, jewellery and fashion. We would like to show the world what contemporary Chinese design is all about, and help to understand the new Chinese aesthetics and lifestyle. While fostering the cross-cultural exchange of ideas, knowledge and expertise, our platform is an ideal place to explore collaborative opportunities between designers from China, UK and the rest of the world.

Our services include:

  • Consultancy
  • Conference
  • Business support
  • Exhibition curation and planning
  • Bespoke projects and products
  • Study trips and training workshops

Our clients include:

  • Interior designers, architects
  • Academic institutions and cultural organisations
  • Designers and brands
  • Estate development groups
  • Museums, galleries
Why CDC?
China is at a crucial stage in its development, where economic growth and rapid social transformation is generating a growing awareness of cultural identity. Creativity is seen as the key to unlocking a new realm of social and commercial possibilities. This has led to an increasing desire in China not only to seek out and learn from the world but also to share its own distinctive creative vision.

With professionalism and extensive knowledge of Chinese and British culture and design industry, we have successfully accomplished numerous projects connecting the East and West during the past 6 years. CDC is now one of the most influential platforms for promoting Chinese design overseas. Contact us for more opportunities.
