HERALD DESIGN FORUM 2015
The annual Herald Design Forum returns for its fifth edition on Nov 10, bringing together the design world’s big names to Seoul.
This year, the forum will explore the potential of design when it integrates with other fields such as technology, management, psychology, humanity and art. It will focus on how design acts as an intermediary and comprehensive platform between different industries, merges them, and creates new values in the process.
The forum signals the start of a monthlong celebration of design in Korea, featuring Design Korea (Nov. 11-15) and Seoul Design Week (Dec. 2-6).
Under the theme “Design Platform Creates Value through Integration,” it will offer a glimpse into how design changes the world, with speakers drawn from various fields such as architecture, industrial design, social media, food and 3-D printing.
Date: Nov. 10 (Tuesday) from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
