Fresh Taiwan launched in 2012, organized by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture and executed by Taiwan Design Center, to elevate the profile of Taiwan’s design industry at international trade fairs. This year, Fresh Taiwan brandishes a new, highlighter pen-inspired logo, which universally communicates Fresh Taiwan’s mission; to highlight the best of Taiwan design around the globe.

This year, Studio Smoll has been nominated to take part in the ‘sustainability: design for a better world’ exhibition that gathers together environmentally-conscious and socially-responsible brands from around the world.
