Chen Min Design Office is a multi-faceted design practice established by

designer Min Chen whose production ranges from the design of objects to

technological products and interior architecture.

 

Admittedly there are lots of essences from traditional culture that need to

be inherited. But that never changes design being modernized and

internationalized. Finding the best bonding point of tradition and

modernization, east and west has always been what  Chen Min Office is

good at. Chinese design must become a language that used by the world

instead of staying superficially as some style. Min Chen considers design

as a language, which has its origins, depth, and history. It stays open and

evolves over the time. It expresses life in all aspects, and becomes the

essence of it. On the other hand, language has a great variety in all kinds of

logic, convention, tradition, culture, and philosophy, and so does design.

Min Chen’s goal is to find the Chinese language in the world of design.

关于我们

陈旻设计事务所是一家由设计师陈旻创立的多元化综合型设计公司,业务涵盖从日常用品到科技型产品和室内空间等众多范畴。

陈旻生于 1980 年,早期在德国科隆国际设计学院接受设计教育,然后成功的在著名的荷兰埃因霍芬设计学院取得设计学士学位,成为该校首位中国毕业生。在阿姆斯特丹 Satyendra Pakhale 事务所工作一年后,陈旻赴意大利米兰多慕斯学院攻读设计学硕士学位,并以当年度最优异成绩毕业。毕业后留校担任助教,并在欧洲开展个人设计实践工作。陈旻通过几个获奖设计项目彰显了其事务所涉足创新领域面广、勇于探索和推进技术与材料之极限的特点,也因此享誉世界。

传统文化固然有许多精髓,需要传承,而现代化、国际化才是发展的方向,是设计的主流。寻找传统与现代、东方与西方的最佳结合点一直是陈旻设计事务所比较擅长的。中国设计不是表面化的风格,而必须是一种能为世界所用的语言,这也是陈旻设计事务所一直在实践的。
