The outbreak of COVID-19 is a challenge to the whole world. All industries are facing such challenges, but DIA believes that it’s not just a crisis but also an opportunity for all of us. Standing in between the past and the future, DIA, as the first international academic award in industrial design in China, undertakes the mission of promoting design to realize lofty ideals for our social life and economic development. DIA adheres to the value of “Intelligence of Humanity, Wisdom of Life, Fusion of Tech & Art, Brain of Industry”, and it has affected 56 countries and regions from five continents so far.
DIA added Concept Group in the DIA award, focusing on the theme of “Design Challenge for COVID-19”, which encourages designers to create and transcend themselves.
