The aim of the Sino European Innovation Institute is to promote bilateral investments in creative industry.

A skilled team is always ready consider specific needs, in order to provide customized services for its clients. In order to support its clients and its own research, the Sino European Innovation Institute focuses on three main activities: Lab, Monitor, ShowCase.

Sino Institute Lab

The LAB is an incubator for ideas, projects, inputs received by clients or developed by the Institute itself. The results of the LAB activity come in the form of products, exhibitions, or workshops.

Sino Institute Monitor

Its MONITOR is an antenna directed towards innovative solutions or studies in the fields of design, architecture, and food. It represents a constant activity within Sino’s research, and it often results in concrete actions: exhibitions, talks, events, etc. Most of the time, these activities take place at the Sino headquarters’ gallery in Milan. 

Sino Institute Showcase

A platform based on medium/ long-term projects, to support and develop the activities of Chinese companies in Europe as well as the ones of European firms in China. Counting on its presence in both countries, and thanks to its strong network developed in the course of time, its SHOWCASE helps clients to connect with local institutions, authorities, companies, but not only this. Its role goes further: by working as an intermediary in the development of long-distance projects or strategies, SINO guarantees to keep their sometimes complex phases constantly under control.

CHINA ACADEMY OF ART EXHIBITION “DESIGN · EAST”

Milano – SEI Institute – Italy
China academy of art
June 2015

Design has prospective and retrospective features. So, in China, we think and criticize the cutting-edge design issues under the premise of respecting the traditional culture. China’s traditional culture and crafts are an important source and spirit of Chinese design; we need to start from the perspective of modern design and look for a new research system for traditional handcrafts in modern living contexts.

img_2355_w

Modern activation of traditional crafts retains and restores a variety of information that Chinese traditional culture carries in a certain extent. At the same time, it also creates a new tangible and intangible form that would be accepted by the new cultural and economic mode in different contexts of culture and era. Nowadays it would help to enrich and reshape new forms of society constantly on the dimensions of the design.
