After earning a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Industrial Design from Zhejiang University, she completed a Master’s degree in Industrial Design at Pratt Institute. In 2014, having worked with Marc Jacobs footwear design studio, she began to seamlessly blend two worlds of tech and fashion in the inter-disciplinary practice.

Since 2014, Chanel has begun exploring the innovative connection between the movement and product in New York. Her “Pressmarts - Rock Sofa” design was exhibited in the NYC Media Lab’s Annul Summit. In 2016, Chanel was invited to launch an experimental workshop - “Sense Move” at New Musical Instrument Hackthom 2016 at the Spotify headquarter. In 2018, she launched Last Lab in New York. Last Lab creates pinnacle coveted accessory designs. Focusing on exceptional materials and construction, Last Lab combines a pioneering perspective to enhance people’s experience of moving in their life and to expand the boundaries of the art performance.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Similar to the notion of language, objects that are familiar to most could act as a new media of communication for the subconscious world. Beyond their original functionalities and meanings, the subconscious world had imprinted objects with emotional messages. I intend to designs objects with attributes dedicated to evoke the subconscious meanings from the users. And the reactive interaction would allow the objects to preserve the meanings in a form that could be transmitted to others.
While we tend to regard humanity as the dominator and the only authority who can express emotion, products have their own unique spirits, their own propers and roles in nature, and deserve a certain amount of respect and reverence.
I want to design an object that elicits a response to being recognized as a subject with whom we could communicate. Maybe if we receive and understand the language that objects talk to us, we may pay more respect to them, show regard and consideration when we using it, and take care of products’
feelings.
