I design and create work that contributes to the transformation of an environment, bringing us closer to a feeling of home. Using the circle as a starting point for my design language, I make reference to Asian culture and Zen Philosophy. The circle means being together, harmony and completeness, and all-encompassing in Chinese culture and Asian philosophy. Also, the circle is a form that exists everywhere in daily life. Therefore, the circle becomes a primal connection to my work. I create individual pieces of furniture as well as other objects that share a sophisticated, cohesive atmosphere.
