An important part of the ongoing Beijing Design Week, the Co-creation Summit Forum kicked off at the Star Design Park in Baigou, Hebei Province, on Saturday. 

The forum aims to offer a platform for designers and industry insiders to discuss future trends, as well as turn designs into products, explained Wang Yudong, vice director of the Beijing Design Week organizing committee.

At the forum, designers and insiders shared their opinions on how to incorporate designs in real products and how to shift from a "Made in China" mode of thinking to a "Designed in China" centered philosophy of design.

Designer Wu Yingnan noted at the forum that the biggest problem facing the design industry is figuring out ways to protect original designs from being copied.

Gu Yuanyuan, an assistant professor at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, said she hoped that Star Design Park can act as a platform that will help designers' brands and support factories.
