Ufia Hotel

Stepping out of the elevator room, a peak shape made of plasterboard with black artistic paint finishes protruding from the top surface, forming the peaks of the rolling hills. The ground curve of the rug is indicative of the element of water. The reception desk made of polymer materials is an extension of the ground curve in the three-dimensional space. The doorplate of each room looks like water stains on the wall. At the other end of the public area, there is a giant stainless-steel shaped water drop, which is about to drip on the ground, and it is especially shimmering under the light.

Xiaobing Yao, a famous independent designer, is the founder and design director of Yao Xiaobing Design Studio. In his opinion, design is an applied art rather than a pure art. He pursues the lasting vitality of space, and believes that even the best design works also need exquisite details of the craft to reflect. His design concept does not limited to a certain design style, with the precise positioning of the customer's target demand, he combines design sense, humanization and intellectualization, and achieves high-quality and efficient spatial solutions through artistic expression.

Yao Xiaobing Design Studio

Yao Xiaobing Design Studio was founded by Mr. Yao Xiaobing in 2009. He advocates the concept of original and pure design, mainly focusing on boutique design projects. Professional design is a necessity of this era, it is not a luxurious thing. Defining it as "a more humane, environmentally friendly, relaxed and pleasant lifestyle" will be more incisive and precise. Yao Xiaobing Design Studio believes that the essence of design is to conceive a quiet space, but also to have warmth and the feeling of reality. Remove non-functional decorative elements, simplify colors, lighting, and raw materials to reach the realm of less is more. Yao Xiaobing Design Studio made a careful balance between the new and the old, it has revived the history through the orderly juxtaposition and separation of various fragments, properly displayed the original history, and created a new space. Light creates the mass of an object with brightness and shadow, and the production, expression, and change of material texture depend on resonance with the light. It is precisely because of the existence of light that the space's materiality and sense of form can be fully expressed and integrated into the space with the light. Yao Xiaobing Design Studio's understanding of light is not limited to direction, intensity, and color. It treats light as an entity. It is a way to balance expression from complexity. Vision is cutting from the lens constructed by Yao Xiaobing Design Studio, it is hoped that the viewer can generate flowing senses and feel on his own. In addition to the geometry and color of the object image, it enhances perception, accepts all cues from space and appreciates art spaces that are not regulated.
