Collaborative coverage

The Biennale will be held for 31 days from March 21st to April 22nd. Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne was first held in 1998 and displays distinguished pieces in the design field biannually. One of the most well-known design exhibitions in France, this prestigious event is held in the same light as the National Design Triennial, Milan Design Week, and London Design Festival. Apart from traditional artistic design pieces, the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne will also exhibit creative and innovative industrial and home designs, providing a broad platform for the exchange of commercial, technological, and artistic designs.


In the 19th century, Saint-Étienne was a key figure in the Industrial Revolution thanks to its abundant mineral resources. However, due to depleted coal resources, its days as an industrial powerhouse came to an end in the 20th century, and it instead rose to fame through artistic design. In 2010, it was entitled a "City of Design" by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN).

Meanwhile, Smartmi products are renowned throughout the home appliance industry. The Smartmi DC Variable Frequency Air Conditioner was the first product in mainland China to win the Gold Award at the Good Design Awards (G-mark), and the Smartmi Evaporative Humidifier received four major international design awards within one year of it entering the market. Smartmi products could arguably be regarded as exquisite industrial works of art.

However, which Smartmi products will be presented at the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne 2019 remains to be seen, with the answer to be revealed tomorrow. Smartmi will cover this spectacular event at the site where it is being held. Readers who are interested can stay tuned.
