China, guest of honor Over the last years, the rise of Chinese design has become undeniable. Far from the stereotype of mass consumption and low-quality products, for China, design is a major lever in economic development today.

In order to integrate with the overall process, however, China must find a way to build platforms for exchanges and interaction. Discovering a new culture is at the heart of the Biennale inspiration, allowing us to find the common ground between the two continents that watch and respond to each other.

During the Biennale, Saint-Étienne will become a gateway to Chinese design, opening a discussion with a population of nearly 1.4 billion.
