In addition to currently holding the esteemed position as Chair for the Industrial Designers Society of America, she has successfully led the design on a variety of categories including robotics, consumer electronics, furniture, interior spaces, health care, packaging and soft goods, among others. She led development of Public Office Landscape and Sayl Chair for Herman Miller, Snoo for Happiest Baby, Ori for MIT Morph Lab. Many of which have consistently won top international design awards such as IDEA, RED DOT and FastCompany Innovation by Design.

Qin’s keynote is based on CASE STUDIES that include critical insights regarding the “responsibility in design.” This inspiring and relevant keynote will look at this topic through the optics of Industrial Design.  She will be expounding how to design to bridge tech and human life, how to design and bring AI robotics to the elderly, and how to design for sustainability .

“As we’ve grown, we’ve identified opportunities to scale for and support different ages, economic backgrounds, and multiple countries on a global scale. Through design, we work to build bridges that better connects the individual to technology. To innovate during both the product’s life and its death through new materials and process. To elevate human life and create smarter and healthier experiences.” – Qin Li, Vice President of Design at fuseproject
