March 2, 2006: China has already become an important manufacturing center and, as the world’s most populous nation, a coveted new market. China is also quickly becoming a global design center.

Lunar’s John Edson talks with Andrew Zee, manager of Lunar’s new Hong Kong office, and Elaine Ann, founder of Kaizor Innovation, a strategic innovation consulting company specializing in China markets, about new directions for design in China.

John mentions a recent read, The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman, and Icon-o-Cast listener Shalin enjoys his (almost) new Senseo coffee maker.
