Successful Chinese designs?

Is the future design process in understanding local behaviour or global markets?

I have just finshed a dissertation research project with the above title. I used contemporary Hong Kong design as a case study. In HK I saw some designers (across all disciplines) who successfully take inspiration from local culture.

I don’t want to start another anti/pro-Chinese design debate, but I’m curious to know what people think about Chinese product design TODAY.

Some examples of work you’ve seen would be nice.

I dont know if this would be useful to you, but ill post it anyway.
Giorgio Armani talks about Eastern elements in his designs.

I also recently read something about Swedish-Chinese co-operation in Industrial Design.
