Zinnia Nizar | Vice President | Indonesia
"Indonesia, as a country of 17,000 islands, taught me how tough it is working with different designers, even when we are in one country. As our association became active as a Member of ico-D, I also saw the importance of connecting and networking with other designers around the world. Globalisation enables us to discuss various design problems or innovation, but actual connection and collaboration enables us to make things happen and it is a much stronger voice when it is one voice."
