Lives and Works: Beijing
People’s Industrial Design Office (Beijing, China) is a sister company of People’s Architecture Office. It was founded by American product designer and architect James Shen and Chinese architects He Zhe and Zang Feng.
PIDO is adept at designing at different scales. We view our products not only as objects but as objects in space.
Our cross cultural backgrounds and vibrant setting in the heart of Beijing are sources of unlimited inspiration. We strive for simplicity and conceptual clarity. Pushing beyond form-making, PIDO experiments with materials, movement, visual effects, and both primitive and hi-tech technologies. With this holistic approach, we re-define the ways users engage with objects.
