Interview with the 2019 MUSE Design Awards Winner -Leo Lin

1Please give us a brief bio of yourself and your design background.

In the creation of space, we should find the essence of design value and integrate our own unique views and opinions on aesthetics.

2What made you become/why did you choose to become a designer/artist?

Creation can leave a mark, where we hope we can leave a mark of existence in the limited life and bring a better possibility for the society.

3Tell us more about your business/company, job profile, and what you do.

Our company serves four categories: commercial space, residential space, office space and exhibition space, contracting design and engineering, and I am responsible for the control of the overall company's operation.

4What does “design” mean to you?

For me, design represents the value of itself and can create better possibilities.

5What’s your favorite kind of design and why?

I like Japanese designs the best because it can let people settle down and appreciate pure beauty at the same time.

6To you, what makes a “good” design?

To master the best proportion is to design well.

7Describe your design style and its main characteristics.

In the presentation of style, I like simple layouts in the presentation of materials, in the stacking of layers, in the presentation of colors, like strong contrast, in the presentation of lines, like delicate division.

8Tell us about your design process.

Creative thoughts, material collection, deconstruction of materials, conversion applications, and effect rendering.

9Do you think your country and its cultural heritage has an impact on your design process?

Very influential. There are many excellent designers in my country. Their works are abundant nutrients for me.

10Congratulations! As the winner of the 2019 MUSE Awards, what does it mean to you and your company and team to receive this award distinction?

This is a very big encouragement and recognition, but also let our design team more confident that in the future creative we will be more active growth, create more beautiful possibilities.

11What was the biggest challenge with this project?

The major challenges for the design team, apart from the need for incorporating a large-size photo wall design, are the stylistic considerations for matching with furniture, audio-visual appliances and art collections already selected by the owners, while accentuating the living style of the owners. Eventually, the whole room adopted a slight sense of luxury in the modern new classical styling as the design solution.
