Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Iun Lung Lu ("ILL") 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.
ILL : I have an education background solely in industrial mechanism. I stumbled upon interior design, fell in love with it ever since, I read and learned about it from as many sources as I could, and eventually became a designer.
ILL : I've always been interested in space arrangement. My first project was rearranging and re-decorating a room in my home. From there I started learning about design by myself, and eventually became a designer.
ILL : I chose to become one out of passion and interest.
ILL : My company does minimalistic home designs, commercial spaces designs for the most part with some installation art design. I'd like to do more projects where I could design the whole building from scratch, that way there's less limitations and restraints on expression of creativity.
ILL : Beauty, comfort, improves life quality, just to name a few of the values. And for above reasons, I believe people should invest in good design.
ILL : I've been wanting to design and build my own coffee shop.
ILL : Passion, constant learning of innovative perspectives, invest in what can expand your horizon.
ILL : I've designed a mansion, using style that's completely different from that of the local market. While the local market tends to use more extravagant decor, shiny objects to announce their wealth and existence, the mansion I designed was minimalistic but spells humble elegance with high-end taste.
ILL : Constant learning, see more, travel more if they can. Pay attention to details in everyday life, observe what could be improved in an environment, and apply what you've learned into your projects.
ILL : Possibly a chef.
ILL : My wife, without her my company would not have been established.
ILL : Create and promote a different kind of style to people in Taiwan.
ILL : I hope design can be out of modularly created, I'd like to see designers try out different designing styles, bring more change to buildings in Taiwan.
ILL : Usually at least a year from start to finish.
ILL : I start from understanding the client's need, their living habits, their likes and dislikes, in order for me to design a perfect space for them.
ILL : Design sets the trends.
ILL : I start thinking about how can I and what about them can I apply to my own design, if there's a concept I haven't explored, a new idea I didn't think of, how can I incorporate it into my own design?
ILL : Besides learning from observing, I also learn from my mistakes.
ILL : I'm very fond of Italy, its culture, and definitely its wonderful food.
ILL : When clients accept my designing style it always puts me in a good mood, my style is not the most common in the local market, so I'm glad every time a new client accepts it, I feel like that brings Taiwan a little closer to having a more diverse and vibrant idea of design each time.
