Perspectives is the world’s first bilingual resource that provides insights into design created for and within huaren (Chinese-speaking) communities.


Seeing a need to shed light on this under-explored facet of the global design world, Perspectives aims to highlight the products, projects, people, and perspectives that embody huaren design today. We seek out design-industry leaders–designers, architects, business leaders, curators, and scholars–and talk with them one-on-one to dig out their perspectives on what it means to design for and within the huaren world.


We profile products and projects designed by or for huaren (Chinese-speaking people) that incorporate the best of both widely accepted design principles from Europe and America–such as ergonomics and form-follows-function–and those influences, practices, and philosophies inherent to huaren culture.
