Life full of ingenuity, design integrated into citizens’ life

What does the World Design Capital mean?

The World Design Capital (WDC) is a global event initiated by International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid). The WDC is designated by Icsid every two years. Past cities to hold the WDC title include Torino (Italy) in 2008, Seoul (South Korea) in 2010, Helsinki (Finland) in 2012, Cape Town (South Africa) 2014, and Taipei (Taiwan) in 2016.

The jury selected these cities as the World Design Capital not only because these cities had actively created suitable conditions for the development of the design sector, but also because they had understood how to use design thinking to come up with wonderful solutions to solve major issues that a city face. Each World Design Capital knew how to use innovative and creative methods to develop its own vision and model.
