There is a saying that prays: “If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go further go with a team”.
Workplane has chosen to follow this wise advice and began a new phase of collaborations, one of them with our colleagues from Daye Design in the city of Guangzhou (China).
This April our Director Josep Casal with Workplaners Fran Sorroche, Eduardo Garcia and with the invaluable help of Tian Yi as an interpreter, went to Guangzhou to formalize this new relationship between companies, which might be considered rivalry, but have decided to join forces.
Mr. Qu Shang (Sam), the General Manager and Mr. Xu Yongxing (Iverson) and some other members of the Daye Design Team, received them with extreme kindness and the same wish: to make both businesses grow up by sharing knowledge and establishing a bridge between Asia and Europe in the field of product design services.
Daye Design is a company with which we were quickly identified when we met for the first time in 2014, because, like us, believe in the power of industrial design as a tool to improve the world and make others happy, our clients, or the end user.
As designers, no matter where we are, have in common the need to grow as human beings. Design is an intellectual discipline that feeds our souls.
Our day by day is always new and dynamic, we are constantly learning in a stubborn search for solutions. We learn to relativize things, we fight to make everything possible.
From now on, Eduardo will be working from the Daye’s office in Guangzhou and now we invite you to see the album that visually summarizes the beginning of this new friendship we hope will be long and prosperous.
