As the Design Director of Zendo Design, Chiung’s diversity in themes and style allows him to be more open-ended in his designs, becoming adept to take on harder design challenges.
I like to draw since childhood as I had an enthusiasm for painting and a strong feeling of natural beauty. Observing nature changing the grain, color, temperature, and variation of light-shadow by season is what I like to see . When I am going into drawing. I always neglect surrounding and I know one day I will become a designer because it is my dream.
Our company is a delicate workshop. It is not only a company but also a family where we don’t have restricted work hours, and we support and inspire each other. This work ambience is what I like.
For me, designing is like breathing. All the inspiration given by nature, every streak and light-shadow in nature is so beautiful and free. This is the best design!
I like the opus with streak and combines with local culture.
My style is diversification with stability. I will change my style based on the case. An excellent designer shouldn’t self-limit but open the mind to take challenges.
Design is a lengthy and lonely road. I often face challenges and painfulness. This experience makes me grow up, as it is a necessary course which every design should have. The bitter process leads sweet, fruitful outcomes.
I was born in Taiwan and lived in Argentina for 15 years. Now I am living in Taiwan. These experiences make my design have different kinds of country culture and be more multi-variant.
These awards mean a lot to our design team. The competition is an essential international arena to test our design capability and creativity.
My principle of design is making my clients feel satisfied and successful. This is the basic mission I believe every designer should make. The design concept is also what I want to express. I try my best to add local cultures into my design and use the original beauty of building materials, such as brightening and ventilation. The inspiration of this case is from the oasis. We are trying to design a quiet and elegant habitation in this noisy city.
When I have a great opus, I tend to show to the public. Because I hope to make more and more people understand my design concept. This is why I enjoy the competition and I will do it again and again in the future.
Design is always the ideal one, and if we want to achieve it, the budget could pose a problem for us and so do the techniques.
I always focus on the design cases. All of the awards and praises are self-affirmation so it’s not important to become famous to me.
Keep taking challenges and never restrict yourself. The most important thing is having enthusiasm in the craft.
Nowadays, science and technology are flourishing and everything changes so quickly. This phenomenon makes design difficult to predict. I believe design will include all domains in the future and create a new type of design.
Technologies today are necessary tools for design. The latest software and techniques can ensure flexibility and variety in the development of design.
I still remember the days when I designed my house, we had a lot of arguments with my parents due to the different concepts. I made a lot of efforts to communicate with them and finally managed to design a dream house for everyone.
Carlos Páez Vilaro from Paraguay is the one who influence me the most. As an artist and designer, he perfectly makes aesthetics in harmony with nature. This is also my goal.
My secret material is from nature without a heavy process, such as logs, fair-faces concrete, and steel. I often refer to different regions of design. For example, floriculture, plane, stage, traditional culture, and industry design. Creativity comes from different kind of design and I like to combine traditional techniques with modern design and expect to pass on the traditional techniques to the latest opus.
A great designer has heavy duties to the society and environment. An excellent technique can treat the nature well and a great idea is the best social education.
