As an acclaimed interior designer, Lanny’s design style are based off the Chinese aesthetic influenced by the logical Western methods, allowing a loose and free look.
I am Lanny from Beijing and graduated from Beijing University of Technology. I am an interior designer who has been engaged in design for 15 years.I started working on the service and design of the real estate demonstration area. So since I founded my own company, I have been focusing on the real estate design sector.
I was born in the mid-80s, and I just entered the 90s at the age of studying. At that time, China was in music, film, and painting. There were many classics in that era. I was born in Beijing and I was exposed to many foreign cultures of that period, such as the Dragon Ball of Japanese manga. At that time, the popularity of Internet letters was very slow, and the aesthetic impact of a comic on a teenager was huge. So it also had its own aesthetic standards during that period. The industry that is slowly doing it is also biased in this direction.
Our company currently has 26 employees and belongs to a small design company. The real estate sector where our main business revolves. The quality of our service objects is very valuable. For example, Poly, China Shipping, and other top ten real estate companies. To be able to serve this level of company, a very important point is our professionalism. In the past 15 years of design, I am very familiar with the design process and product requirements of real estate companies. It is also true that our small-scale company can have its own place in the current highly competitive market.
Design is a way of life for me. A good design can show a person's cultivation and character.Because of the particularity of the design industry, you must maintain a high-time job, but this job is not a monolithic brick. Every project has its own characteristics.
My preference for design is related to my age. When I was in my 20s, I liked free and exaggerated design. Over 30s like natural, relaxing design.
A large part of design is to solve problems, and good aesthetics is a matter of the public. Andy Warhol once said: "Everyone is an artist", so there is no standard for good looks. A good design is a good design that solves the problem.
The design theories we are exposed to come from Western logical methods, but our aesthetic standards are implicit in the Chinese. This is the output of the current Chinese design style, a Western design style under the expression of the East. So I hope our design works look very rigorous, but also very loose and free.
Our design service generally takes two months. In the first week after receiving a design commission, we must first collect the design information of Party A, such as marketing part, plot information, and product type. Next, we will make a layout plan according to the needs of customers and find reference cases for benchmarking. After the plane is determined, the second week. We will enter the deduction stage of the model. This stage is very critical. It will last for a week to verify whether our design is reasonable. The model will be very intuitive to see the problems in our design. In the third week, we began to design the effect of presentation, further confirmation, lighting, materials, details, and soft decoration parts. The feeling of space atmosphere is sometimes inadvertent. It is difficult to form at a time, we usually tear it down several times, about two weeks. In the next month we began to expand the construction drawings.
Beijing has a lot of historical heritage. For example, the Forbidden City is large in size, and Siheyuan is small in size. They have a very deep influence on me. Chinese buildings are mostly frame structures, which are different from classical Western buildings. The buildings are connected by corridors, and one space to another space has to pass through a courtyard with nature. The relationship between the building and the landscape of the courtyard is closer. So my design also hopes to be more integrated into nature.
This is of great significance to our young design company. It is a great recognition of our company. It pushes us forward and gives us greater motivation to do better designs
United Investment Optics Valley Ruiyuan, this is a very imaginative project. We hope to create a visually recognizable work, and the owner hopes to attract a family of three with children to buy a home here. So the core requirement is to make the whole project more joyful. Therefore, we combine the original building space to create a healthy space full of sunshine, and reshape the harmonious parent-child relationship. The appearance and arrangement of the arches are based on the original building structure and design concepts, and it is a place with a warm living atmosphere.
The original site is a commercial space with a very complex structure and many pillars. After we refined the model, we instead used these structures. A dreamy spatial vision is formed through the dislocation of structural relationships.
1. Participate in the bidding of some projects and win from them.
2. Let our design start from the plan.
3. Won some international awards.
The design industry in China is developing very rapidly, and many excellent works have appeared in the decade from 10 to 20 years. I have seen the shadow of Chinese design in many international awards.
I think the future design will develop in the direction of branding, diversification and internationalization.
I hope they can design more rigorously, have confidence in themselves, move in the right direction, and make their own unique styles and more attractive and personalized designs.
We will recommend an excellent platform like Design Epoch to more people to show themselves.
Thanks to the platform for giving us the opportunity to display our works, allowing our works to reach the public's field of vision, giving us confidence, and enabling us to be more motivated to develop in a better direction.
