Interview with the 2021 MUSE Design Awards Winner - Linc Zhang

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

I am Linc Zhang, and I have seven years of architectural design and four years of interior design experience.

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

I liked beautiful things since I was a child, and when I was growing up, I discovered through learning that art also has the logic and laws behind it.

I hope to learn how to create a truly beautiful space, so I am determined to become a designer.

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

Muka architects focus on residential space design and art space design; in the future, we will also expand small retail space design and hotel design.

4What does “design” mean to you?

For me, design is the construction of life, the best bridge between imagination and reality.

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

The design that I like does not have many deliberate techniques, but pays more attention to the use of natural materials, the mood of the space and the spiritual feelings of the users.

6To you, what makes a “good” design?

Good design must be a balance of practicality, beauty and sustainability.

7Describe your design style and its main characteristics.

My design style can be summed up as warm, minimalism, and poetic. As the design philosophy goals of Muka architects, these three are also in a progressive relationship.

8Congratulations! As the winner of the 2021 MUSE Design Awards, what does it mean to you and your company and team to receive this award distinction?

Thank you very much for the favor of MUSE Design Awards. This award is very important to us. It is a high recognition and encouragement for our team in the journey of practicing the design concept.
