Xiao Tianyu (肖天宇)

Born: 1987

Hometown: Liaoning

Lives and Works: Beijing

 

Xiao Tianyu 肖天宇 (b. 1987) is an Industrial designer who graduated from CAFA in 2010. To this day, he continues to molded his design ethos around “identifying and understanding” user needs. His graduation furniture series, Harmony, demonstrates his signature style: combining local Chinese culture with a more contemporary design aesthetic.

Focusing on the design of chairs he spent hours researching different ways of sitting. Furniture from the Ming Dynasty era, for example, encourages one to sit upright in quite a regal manner, whilst slouching on a sofa is considered a more comfortable way of sitting. His Harmony Series is a marriage between the two. In 2013, Harmony was collected by the M+ Museum in Hong Kong.
