Copy This


Always reliably illuminating and questioning larger issues impacting design in a witty way, Droog takes aim at creative license and Chinese manufacturing with a new exhibit – in China. “The New Original” is a collection of objects including designs by Studio Droog, Richard Hutten, Stanley Wong and Urbanus. All subvert traditional Chinese designs and concepts – a typical teapot with an industrial handle, and an inverted restaurant with a mini dining table inside a fishtank. Droog Lab even led a “field trip” to Shenzhen – China’s capital of copycat manufacturing. The exhibit is on view in a shopping mall in Guangzhou, China through April 9.
