2019121日,北京国际设计周学术指导委员会委员王敏荣获国际设计组织联合会(ico-D)主席奖。该奖项首次颁发于1970年,旨在嘉奖个人对于该组织、组织成员和整个国际设计行业所做出的卓越贡献。

 

ico-D主席Zachary Haris Ong在颁奖辞中提到:

 

近年来,国际设计组织联合会(ico-D)在中国开展了大量的工作,不仅因为ico-D在中国有重要的会员基础,也是由于深刻认识到中国强大的制造产业和蓬勃发展的国内市场将会在未来数年内深刻影响全球的设计师。自2009年Icograda(本联合会前身)大会在北京召开以来,通过长期的相互联系与合作, 我们有幸与许多重要机构建立了伙伴关系。

 

In recent years the Council has expended asignificant amount of effort developing our presence in China. This has occurred, not only because we have an important Memberbase in China, but also in recognition that China’s potent manufacturing sector and emergent internal markets will impact designers across the planet for years to come. We have been very fortunate to have privileged relationships with many key institutions, thanks to a longstanding connection dating back to the 2009 Icograda GA and Congress.

 2009北京世界设计大会

 

过去十数年中,王敏一直在为维护这些合作关系而奔走。他在2009年北京Icograda世界设计大会的组织筹办中发挥了关键作用。该次大会也是中国首次举办设计领域的大型国际活动,其对整个中国设计领域产生了深远的影响,催生了之后的北京国际设计周(每年八百万人次参与的盛会,规模位居世界第一)和其他一系列设计领域的发展。为此,王敏与他的团队不知疲倦地进行该次大会的筹办工作。最终,他们克服了复杂环境下的诸多困难,举办了一次成功的设计盛会。

 

Min Wang has played a significant role in these relationships for more than a decade. Min played a key role in organising the Icograda Congress in Beijing in 2009. This was the first major international design event in China and had far-reaching consequences for Chinese design, including the establishment of Beijing Design Week (now thelargest in the world with 8 million annual participants), and many other design-community related developments. Min was in charge of the 2009 Congress effort, along with a team of tireless, devoted colleagues that accomplished a great deal in the context of complicated circumstances.

作为Icograda的副主席和中央美术学院(CAFA)设计学院院长,王敏一直努力构筑中国设计界和国际业界的联系。他不遗余力地把来自各个机构的人们凝聚到一起,为国际社会的共同福祉而奋斗,这点其实已远超我们这个职业所应肩负的责任。这种为了人们的共同福祉而辛勤工作的奉献精神是世所罕见的。

 

As both a Vice President of Icograda and Dean of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA), Min has been instrumental in building the links between the international community and the Chinese design community over the years. His continued dedication to building these connections, to bringing together organisations and people for the greater good of our global community, goes well beyond professional obligation. Min is one of those rare souls that genuinely works for the common good.

作为保罗·兰德(Paul Rand)时期的耶鲁毕业生、Adobe设计团队的领军人物、AGI中国分部的主要组织者以及2008北京奥运会、世界经济论坛和其他无数中国政府及设计业界委员会和项目的中流砥柱,王敏是一位世界公民,他为全球设计师的福祉贡献了自己的时间、智慧与热诚。故此,我认为他获得本次ico-D主席奖可谓名至实归。

 

A graduate of Yale University, at the time of Paul Rand, a leading member of the Adobe design team, a prime organiser of the Chinese AGI contingent, a key contributor to the Beijing Olympic design and 2008 Beijing Olympic Committee, the World Economic Forum and countless Chinese government and design community committees and projects, Min is a global citizen who has contributed his time, intellect and passion to the greater good of designers around the world. For that reason, I am pleased to say that he is mightily deserving of this recognition.

 

在此,我们授予王敏2019年国际设计联合会主席奖,期待他在未来做出更多卓越的贡献。

 

Looking forward to many more years of fruitful collaboration and friendship, we award Min Wang with the 2019 ico-D President’s Award.
