I was attending at the Icsid General assembly when it was held in Singapore 26th and 27th of November. The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (Icsid) is a global not-for-profit organisation that promotes better design around the world. Today, Icsid counts over 150 members in more than 50 countries, representing an estimated 150 000 designers.
Icsid members are professional associations, promotional societies, educational institutions, government bodies, corporations and institutions, which aim to contribute to the development of the profession of industrial design.
Delegates from Sweden were, except from me, Dag Holmgren also representing Swedish Association of Designers, Robin Edman, SVID, The Swedish Industrial Design Foundation, and Tomas Seo.
