About Jo Zhu : I am a furniture designer with my own design company in Guangzhou, China. Previously I was an interior designer worked in the locally famous Guangzhou Jimei Group and working in my own interior studio. I learned my passion for designing furniture when I was finishing my own house ten years ago, and two years ago I actually began to take it serious as my career transition. My furniture design had gain some good recognition in 2016 and 2017's China International Furniture Expo and Design Shanghai Exhibition.
STATEMENT OF ART:
A good design should be original, convey senses of nature, essence and timelessness. Details are important. Geometry scale, technology, material and detail all can be included into aesthetic pursue, and they all have inter-connections awaiting designers to discover. Because I've been an interior designer for very long time, I also value the integration between furniture and space.
