Zhejiang, a province in southeast China, is renowned for its scenic beauty and rich culture. People there appreciate the beauty of better living and invigorated by its people’s desire towards the beauty of life.

Daily utensils that incorporate the features of practicality, delicacy, elegance and innovation are of embodiment of beauty of life. Designers from Zhejiang have inherited and developed ancient Chinese philosophy of “Harmony of Man with Nature”, applying the idea to their designs of daily appliances by using natural materials as silk, bamboo, wood and ceramics, which reflect an integration of traditional craftsmanship and innovative thought.

Zhejiang Creative Design Exhibition, organised by China Cultural Centre in Sydney and Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture, is made possible to showcase the development of creative design industry in China, opening a window for a better understanding and appreciation of oriental aesthetics, and bringing the two countries closer.
