Taiwan’s creative industries have developed to harbour a diversity and maturity of professional design that, while preserving aspects of Chinese cultural heritage, also displays the vigour of modernity and a pioneering avant-garde spirit. In recent years Taiwanese culture has edged further onto the international stage, revealing not only the wealth of the country’s creative production, but also displaying the depth and versatility of its cultural foundations. The FORMOSA SHOW, which is now entering its fourth consecutive year, brings together the cream of Taiwan’s design community, for the benefit of London based design enthusiasts and professionals. 

The exhibition will be open to industry professionals on the 18th and open to the general public from the 19th to the 22nd. Entry is free of charge. This year’s exhibition is the first to enjoy the generous support of Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture, which endeavours to promote Taiwanese culture in the UK.
