I pay two full-time assistants in my studio, plus consultants who are architects, engineers, and landscape architects, as well as lighting designers. -Janet Echelman-
How about a Chinese dinner service in pure white with the ever‐popular rice pattern? A great idea in its simplicity which, with the addition of a colour rimmed base plate, is both versatile and practical. “A black plate and the correct accessories for a sophisticated dinner setting, perhaps a bright yellow plate and matching linen and flowers for midday and something else for breakfast“.
The permutations are virtually limitless, and long before the dinner services reached the shop. Some 150 sets of coloured and white china had been sold to his friends and acquaintances who had seen and admired the designs. Next step Is to work on the chopsticks which are planned with inlaid stone to decorate their creamy shafts, then to tackle the other accessories.
Latest achievements include a move towards different spatial projects. There were the stage and lighting design of a Danny Chan concert and latterly the design of Hong Kong‘s hottest discotheque in Kowloon, the Canton. Where minimalist decor and the superb lighting contribute to its unique and exciting atmosphere.
Convinced that the Hong Kong future will become moribund, writers frequently ask him what his plans are. Only to find that he is optimistic and that he expects the upcoming decade to be event better than the first. ”If you are worried, it‵s no benefit just sitting around and moaning about it”.
This talented designer intends to not go and work towards brighter future. He would like to see China developing urban areas on the lines of their traditional Chinese villages, an environment that retains the irreplaceable designs and culture within a secure and comfortable atmosphere.
As he busies himself with more projects, television appearances and tertiary level academic tuition. One is left wondering how this enthusiastic and personable designer continues to meet him extraordinarily busy and varied schedule and to remain not just creative, but innovative. A skilled staff? To the certain degree. An organized mind? Of course. Dedication? Naturally. That indefinable quality that elevates a true artist from the masses, Whatever it is. He is a name we will be soon hearing not just in Hong Kong but all over South East Asia and far beyond.
