From MIT (Made in Taiwan) to DFT (Design from Taiwan)

In 2020, with the government's support and important national strategy consideration, the Taiwan Design Center (TDC), since 2003, was officially promoted to the "Taiwan Design Research Institute" (TDRI).

During the TDC's time, its goals were to promote design culture/aesthetics, industry design guidance, and international cooperation. Today, "TDRI" has its higher vision and mission: to establish the cooperation platform for cross-field integration and cross-industry; to build a creative stage for new generation design talents; to enhance corporate design capabilities for business strategies, develop design-leading enterprises, and promote Taiwan to become a high-end manufacturing center and high-tech R&D center.

ADI (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale), the official Italian industrial design association, has been TDC and TDRI international partner for industrial design between Taiwan and Italy. Along the way, ADI is the witnesser of Taiwan Design from its development, growth to prosperity. We do believe the diverse and rich cultural heritages are the nutrition of innovation/creativity. And it always brings positivity when we are facing "diversity" by open-mindedness and curiosity. Both Italy and Taiwan have diverse and rich maritime cultural characteristics. Italy is the Mediterranean culture, and Taiwan is located in Asia-Pacific. We are excited to look forward the more interaction and cooperation to promote cultures, industries, and enterprises between Taiwan and Italy with the "Design"!
