What We Saw: Beijing Design Week

Via @Sight_Unseen, a personal review and slideshow of Beijing Design Week 2011 by SightUnseen editor Monica Khemsurov. Says Khemsurov, “When you live all the way around the globe, visiting China for the first time for any reason — even for work, even for an international design fair, even to a sprawling modern metropolis like Beijing — is going to be mostly about visiting China for the first time.”
