Following the success of "Talents" at Messe Frankfurt's German shows, Interior Lifestyle China will feature the concepts and prototypes of 13 young designers from China, Europe and Japan. The show, which debuted in 2007, will run from October 10 - 13 at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre.

Representing different cultures and styles, they are bound to bring an extraordinary storm of innovation to the local design circles."
