Domus Academy alumnus finalist at Loewe Foundation Craft Prize

7 February 2019

Chen Min, Master in Product Design 2008 alumnus, was among the finalists of Loewe Foundation Craft Prize thanks to his project “Hangzhou Stool”.

Striving to articulate the Chinese language of design, Chen’s fascination with traditional Chinese art arose from an early training in calligraphy and painting. After studying at Milan’s Domus Academy, his eponymous practice has sought to forge a bond between East and West, while addressing the user experience between tradition and modernity.

Chen has always considered design as a language rooted to a singular starting point and crafted by both history and culture. Inspired by the slow pace and tranquil atmosphere of his home city of Hangzhou, he channels this more relaxed rhythm into the creation of a concave bamboo stool. Blurring the line between old and new, the sum of these stratified bamboo veneers produces a compact piece of furniture, alluding to the countless layers of in nuances that shape contemporary design.

The LOEWE Craft Prize seeks to acknowledge and support international artisans of any age or gender who demonstrate an exceptional ability to create objects of superior aesthetic value. By identifying work that reinterprets existing knowledge to make it relevant today while reflecting its maker’s personal language and distinct hand, the LOEWE FOUNDATION aims to highlight the continuing contribution of craft to the culture of our time.

Congratulations Chen!
