About Tom Chan & Melanie Man : Husband-wife partners-in-crime Melanie Man and Tom Chan sat up Hazuto to bring our best design ideas to life. We chase these values: grounded, unassuming, meticulous. We lived in the UK for sometime before settling in Hong Kong and creating Hazuto – you may have noticed the English influence on our work. Tom adds value through his experience in product development that is patented and awarded. Mel brings value with a decade of business and marketing experience. One thing’s for sure: we won’t launch something we wouldn’t use ourselves, so you can bet our work has been through countless iterations, which has driven our suppliers (and each other) crazy from time to time! We are pleased Hazuto board has been awarded twice with a Plus X Design Prize (Germany) for High Quality + Design and a A’ Design Prize (Italy) Bronze winner.
STATEMENT OF ART:
What is "design" for me?

Wow there are many answers for me. I agree with many that design is a solution to a problem. Something has to work well to be good design. In particular, the person using it should use it with ease and the product should make his life easier. A better design should provoke attractive emotions through visual appeal. Sometimes a design is good design because the user "just like it". A great design will continuously excite the user nearly every time he uses it, and make him look forward to using it, too. I think if a majority of people say something is a good design, it probably is.

Ask me again in 10 years time and maybe my answers become completely different!
