Why I like Taipei

 

Taipei has I very special meaning for me and my career in the world of design. The first time I visited this remarkable city was in the year 1992. Already at that time there was an established strong design community promoting the importance of design. One of the leading persons was Paul Cheng, who had studied industrial design in Essen the hometown of the red dot award in Germany. Paul was my first contact and he introduced me to Tony Chang, who at that time was responsible for the Taipei Convention Centre. Together we organized the first red dot exhibition in Taipei in the same year 1992. the exhibition was a big success and it stated the beginning of my deep friendship with Taipei and the wonderful design community in the city. Since that time I learned to know many designers of all different disciplines. Beside the big number of very good industrial designers there are many leading designers in the fields of communication design and interior design.

 

In 1995 Taipei was the host city of the Icsid Congress. It became an unforgettable event of me. As a keynote speaker I was introduced the worldwide design community. Many of the designers who attended that conference are still today very good friends.

 

It is warm hospitality and the professionalism of the Taipei designers that opens up many new opportunities for business, profession and friendship. In Taipei you can realize your ideas very easy. The people are always open for new perspectives and projects. It is very easy to fiend partners and friends for making things happen. Since 1992 Taipei has been developed to one of the most attractive cities in Asia. There is no doubt about the outstanding cultural heritage of the city, but more than that Taipei has become one of leading places for creativity.

 

Creativity is the driving force of the live in Taipei. You can feel it everywhere. No matter if you like to enjoy art performances or the excellent food in one the high amount of outstanding fine dining restaurant. On top of that you can find many cafes and bars where you can explore the latest design trends of the region. Taipei sets the standard for a high quality of modern life style in Asian cities. If you have not yet being there, you missed an exiting experience. Don’t wait too long for it! Join the inspiring community of designers and enjoy wonderful moments of culture, creativity and friendship.

 

In the year 2011 Taipei will host the1st.IDA Congress in the history of modern design. This will be a magnificent event with excellent speakers from all over the world. “Design at the Edges” will explore new fields and possibilities for the future development of design. This unique congress will be another good reason to come back to Taipei. I will be there! For sure I will meet friends from all over the world! A must be for everybody who works in the field of design!
