Khoi is a product designer living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He has participated and won several design awards in his country. He finds joy in everyday work althrough sometimes also there is pressure: sketching, elaborating design details on computer, passionately talks to colleagues and takes part in the process of building sample from industrial goods to furniture items . In spare time, he enjoys reading books and going out to observe life, finding new ideas through seemingly ordinary things. His design point on individual projects is not to be affected too much by a style or a form that he saw earlier. Instead he listens to what is inside that makes him excited. He likes the spirit of freedom in artistic creation. A neat desk, some blank paper and a pencil is ideal. His dream is to visit more countries around the world, discover the beauty of architecture, different cultures to enrich his living capital and aesthetic thinking.
