DESIGN OF PHILOSOPHY
Hu Yuwen Design is the collection of work by product designer David Hu. His love and respect for Chinese culture motivates him to explore how culture and philosophy can inspire modern design, and in doing so, help Chinese design find an identity foothold in the midst of the country's often chaotic economic and social changes. His work is centered on taking a more introspective look at China's place in this world and, by extension, culture's role in design. He calls this pursuit a Design of Philosophy. and it is rooted in the belief that modern Chinese design should:
DISCOVER its voice from a philosophy-centered perspective.
ASPIRE to be universal and not be bound by political, geographical, and ethnic boundaries.
INSPIRE China to identify a greater purpose for itself as a global citizen in the future.
