Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Lichen Ding ("LD") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
LD : I graduated from wuhan university in 2008, majoring in interior design. Now I am working as a creative director in Sihan design.
LD : Of course, this is my own choice, and this choice is the most proud thing in my life. Design is not only my work but also an indispensable part of my life, which makes my life more artistic, with goals and expectations.
LD : I am mainly engaged in hotel design. Of course, I would like to make contact with some art spaces, such as museums, when I have the opportunity.
LD : Listen more, read more, and learn more. Although it seems very simple, it's something that needs persistence. It's not easy, but if design is your belief, it's very simple again.
LD : I would say that a good designer tells the client "how this needs to be done" and a good design tells the client "what doesn't need to be done".
LD : In my opinion, there is no absolute good or bad design, only the most appropriate, existence is reasonable, even some things have been over-designed, wasted energy. Good interior design should not only be comfortable, but also allow people to understand something in the space.
LD : I will engage in public welfare design, so that more people can be exposed to the magic of design, so as to realize the inner feelings and change the values and outlook on life.
LD : Enjoy life, enjoy design
LD : neri&hu,Claudio Silvestrin
LD : I think the hotel design, because no space can let people experience a place as a whole.
LD : Solve the problem and feel meaningful at the same time
LD : In a strict sense, design is not my job, but an indispensable part of my life, which makes my aesthetic, demands on the details of life, and even my belief.
LD : Helping the client complete the project and win a good response in the market is the first step. Look for photographers who can read your space and take beautiful pictures. Then sign up for prestigious international competitions and try your best to win prizes for exposure.
LD : It is still a hotel design. Currently, several hotels will be completed one after another. The hotel under creation is also featured.
LD : Design should be a state of very spontaneous occurrence, which can be accepted by everyone in the world, and I hope that the future will bring them a memorable experience.
LD : I am currently working on a hotel lobby with design elements that go beyond what I have not expressed before, and I am confident that I can move every guest who comes.
LD : The hotel project "Shang Ju Hotel" completed last year is very satisfactory to both the customers and the customers. Under the limited budget, we worked hard to complete it together. Now the business status is very good. The customers have let us participate in the second phase of the work, and we believe that we will meet you soon.
LD : More intelligent technology applications, such as the development of 5g, are developing rapidly in China.
LD : Normally one to two years.
LD : Stay hungry,stay foolish.
LD : I think it is "design". People often need a bigger carriage when they are known, while the job of designers is to create a car for people when they are not known.
LD : Adobe Photoshop，AutoCAD，SketchUp
LD : I am open to any questions. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I would make may best effort to reply.
