Historic First Graduation

by SDI Class of 2017.

May 09 2017.

Starting in 2011, we finally have achieved our first big goal: graduating our first Advanced Class of Strategic Design & Innovation (SDI) at the DeTao-Studio Esslinger within SIVA (Shanghai Institute of Visual Arts). During the last 6 years, we have built a state-of-the-art studio incl. a World Class model shop with German machinery and tools – thanks to the generous support by the DeTao Group. After trying in vain to establish a Master program

for design due to lack of qualified graduate students by our standards, we started our undergraduate program in 2013, and in close collaboration with SIVA, we created a program which is on par with top design schools in Europe, United States and Japan.

战略设计与创新实验班由上海视觉艺术学院与德稻教育于2011年合作成立。目前,我们实现了设置该课程以来的第一大目标:我们的第一批学生近日在德稻艾斯林格工作室内顺利毕业了。在过去的六年时间里,我们建立了最先进的工作室,以及配有德国机械与工具的全球超一流模型室。在这里也由衷感谢德稻教育对此的慷慨解囊!起初我们的想法是建立一个设计类研究生项目,但因未能招到符合我们招生标准的合格本科生而作罢。最终,通过与上海视觉艺术学院的紧密合作,我们在2013年成立了该本科生项目。与欧洲、美国和日本的顶尖设计类院校相比,我们打造的这一项目绝对可与此比肩。

Back in February, our Seniors choose themselves the topic of their graduation project and within less than 3 months they had to develop innovative design solutions. Coherently with

our broad view on design we let them work on a wide range of issues: from social tasks like children’s health and personal safety, to sports equipment, autonomous mobility, robotics,

and entertainment. The graduation finals were honored by the presence of Gong Xueping, founder of SIVA and John Xia, CEO of DeTao Group. Our jury included two teachers and

three outside jurors:

Prof. Ping Ye, SIVA, Shanghai

Lidan Liu, Design affairs, Shanghai

Lei Ten, Ark Design, Shanghai

Rain Huan, The Makers, Shanghai

Prof. Dr. Hartmut Esslinger, DeTao/SIVA Shanghai

我们的大四学生在今年二月初选定了各自的毕设项目主题。随后,在接下来不到三个月的时间里,他们需要为此制定出具有创新意义的解决方案。因为我们在整个四年里贯穿的设计领域非常广阔,所以此次毕设主题触及到了一系列的问题:从社会任务(像儿童健康及个人安全问题)到运动装备,自主移动,机器人再到娱乐相关设备等。此次毕业答辩活动我们还有幸邀请到了上海视觉艺术学院的老校长:龚学平及德稻教育集团总裁夏军先生。我们的评委团由两位校内老师及三位外请嘉宾组成,他们分别是:

叶苹,上海视觉艺术学院院长

刘力丹,Design Affairs合伙人

滕磊,Ark Design 设计总监兼合伙人

宦晶羽,创客星球创始人

艾斯林格,德稻教育大师&上海视觉艺术学院教授

Two of our students earned extra honors with their projects we are showing here:

“Biky”, a safe child bicycle by Wang Jiaqi and “Xiavari”;

我还想特别表扬一下两位同学的毕业项目,他们分别是:

王佳琪同学设计的儿童安全自行车“Biky”,

a digital violin by Xia Jing.

以及夏婧同学设计的电子小提琴“Xiavari”。

I also want to thank our teaching team: Cicy Chen, Chinese Design Leader, William Volcoff, Studio Manager & Foreign Design Leader, Everina Lu, Office Manager, Carlo Chen, Master Modelmaker, Tian Kun Kun, Designer & Modelmaker – and especially Benjamin Cselley, who joined us for the event. Beny supported me for 5 years, and managed the entire build-up of the studio. Also: big thanks to DeTao Group and SIVA – incl. their teachers - for providing the means for our ambitious program.

 

在此,我还要感谢我的教学团队:Cicy,中方设计经理;William Volcoff:工作室负责人兼外籍设计经理;Everina:工作室经理;Carlos: 模型师;Tian Kun Kun:设计师兼模型师 – 特别鸣谢Benjamin Cselley前来参与我们的毕业生答辩活动。Benjamin在前五年的时间里协助我一起建立并管理整间工作室。与此同时,还要感谢德稻集团及上海视觉艺术学院,包括所有老师们的鼎力协助。谢谢大家为我们这一本科项目所提供的诸多帮助。

Class of 2017: keep going far, create for a better world and be a leader!

寄予2017届的毕业生们:望你们展翅翱翔,创造一个更美好的世界。祝愿你们都成为明日的领导者!
