Established in 2015, the Design Intelligence Award (DIA) is an international academic award for design and innovation in China. It is a platform for the evaluation, promotion and cooperation of contemporary innovative design, and an innovative accelerator that turns ideas into wealth for future development. DIA returns to the origin of design with human intelligence, advocates the core value of “Intelligence of Humanity, Wisdomof Life, Fusion of Tech & Art, Brain of Industry”, and plays the role of bringing world-wide creativity to an intelligent future.
The theme of 2022 focuses on “Design Collaboration”. The significance of design collaboration lies in breaking down barriers and establishing a new relationship. 2022 is an extremely special year. After the comprehensive anti-epidemic period, we have entered the post-COVID-19 era of long-term coexistence with the virus. As an interdependent community, human society has reached a consensus. DIA hopes to link designers aroundthe world to explore the collaboration and sustainability in the post-epidemic era through design, so that design can be integrated with science&technology and art in different dimensions such as production, life and ecology, break the barriers of the self, and reconstruct new relationships and networks between human and society, human and industry, human and technology, human and medical care, etc. In this way, different countries, nations and civilizations can develop together and achieve win-win cooperationin mutual respect, and make self-confidence, inclusiveness, interaction and cooperation the core of humanistic spirit, opening a new chapter of wonderful design in the world.
