About Wai Ho Cheung : A versatile Industrial Product Designer, who is highly committed to developing a career in product design, especially furniture design. This designer has proven creativity and design skills from academic study, work experience and participation in international exhibitions. Wai Ho was born in Hong Kong and studied in U.K., who studied Physics at university one year before Industrial Product Design; these made Wai Ho had load of experience with two extremes in different fields; either between the eastern and western cultures, or between the logical scientific and emotional aesthetic minds. Now Wai Ho tends to merge the impacts from the extremes into his design style.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Personally, I think the more advanced civilisation becomes, the fewer accessories will be used, as accessories have now become a functional part in everyday life. For example, a watch is no longer simply used as a statement piece of jewellery, but is used to tell the time. In other words, even accessories are functional. I also have an interest in combining ancient geometry with modern techniques, such as ergonomics.
