Duyi Design is named from the ancient Chinese scripts of the Song dynasty. Idioms are frequently used in modern Chinese but derive from ancient stories or poems. Within four characters each idiom delivers its morale.
“Duyi” comes from the idiom 独一无二 (Du Yi Wu Er), embodying the ancient meaning of being unique, or “without equal.”
I came to China because I was intrigued by Chinese ancient culture, and by discovering the China of today – the staggering modernization of diverse cities and markets. I began to discover that amidst the fast pace of life and change in China, people need a polished and tranquil urban living experience in their homes. I decided to combine the concepts of style, functionality and design to create living spaces that truly reflect people’s lifestyle and deliver what they aspire to be.
I started Duyi Design because it’s my passion to discover unusual pieces and the people that create and collect them. I love to travel and discover new artists and designers who are using ancient and modern techniques to make beautiful, unusual home accessories. I enjoy experiencing beautiful hotels and home stays in Europe and the USA, going to markets, and eating local food. All of these elements of traveling provide inspiration and give new perspectives on designing homes in a contemporary urban landscape like China.
Duyi Design is about a personal experience of helping people create a unique living space where they can entertain or spend their personal time with family. It’s such a central part of our lives, what we surround ourselves with at home.
