Inspired while unpacking artwork from shipping crates in Milan [6], the Beijing-based artist began designing her furniture range to embody unusual forms, yet remain adaptable.

A graduate from London’s Bartlett School of Architecture [7], Li now lives on the outskirts of Beijing in an industrial studio space. In her press information she notes that she is highly influenced by the “state of urban development and simultaneous decay” of the city that surrounds her.
