Dutch Design in China

Chairmelotte Wheelchair Couture among Dutch top designs presented in China


We were thrilled that Chairmelotte Wheelchair Couture was selected to be included in the
2015 yearbook ‘Dutch Design in China’. This periodical features a selection of leading design
companies and studios from the Netherlands. Their disciplines range from product design,
fashion and architecture to branding and advertising.

Among these Chairmelotte uniquely represents the fashion niche of designer clothes
specially created for wheelchair users, offering stylish garments with a sophisticated fit and
hidden features that make them comfortable to wear and ensure easy dressing.

‘Dutch Design in China’ provides a snapshot of Dutch design in a global context.

First the book was presented in Shanghai Creative Industry Association, the Dutch consulates
in China’s major cities Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Chongqing, and the
Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) in Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing. This was
followed by presentations in the second tier cities Chengdu, Chongqing, Qingdao, Wuhan
and in Dalian, Nanjing, Ji Nan to the leaders/directors in the creative industry organizations
as well as Chinese local government.
