When it comes to architecture and design, China is about to outpace the Western world – and be the world's creative superpower! We at iF dedicate ourselves to drive forward the development and internationalization of the design industry. This mission in mind, the iF Design Center Chengdu is our first overseas design center with which we want to create a world-class venue that allows visitors to experience cutting-edge designs in Chengdu's Hi-Tech Zone.

Especially for design studios and manufacturers all over the world, this new creative hub offers space to reach the creative market in China. All companies, designers or start ups are welcome to use the 4,000 square meters of space for exhibitions and events, temporary offices and meeting rooms. The new creative space will function as a hub for creative industries and the interested public in Chengdu - one of China's most progressive cities. The integrated iF Design Café and Shop will function as great meeting points.

Recently, the iF Design Center Chengdu celebrated its first anniversary. This is why we take a look at the highlights in 2020 - together with our colleagues on site.
