works across spatial design to furniture and product design. The international study background brings Yingjie with sensitive and inclusive view, and enriches her inspiration from multi-dimensions. She admires the playful and elegant aesthetics as well as the inner logic of structure and material, she also believes good design evokes people´s emotions and curiosity,
From a south-China industrial city to a forest-surrounded capital, she finds urban and nature owns their unique beauty, she enjoys observing and reconstructing the interaction between the external world and human perception. Thus, design, as an approach, is able to externalize and materialize this abstract relationship.
Yingjie’s design process is usually started with a vague and subtle feeling or design for its own purpose. She believes thinking by hand and our body knows us better than our thoughts. In addition to this, She is always exploring the balance point between artistry and industrial production since aesthetic and economic are both important to society.
