From design to lifestyle, " Oriental Modernism" has been widely influential in China and abroad, and has won him the 24th Andrew Martin International Interior Design of the Year Award, which was praised by Western mainstream media as "representing the rise of Chinese design". Ben Wu’s work spans from public spaces, hotels, cultural and creative communities to private clubs and luxury residences, as well as art curation. In 1998, he established WS Group, and has since developed multiple design and lifestyle brands including W.Design, WS Space, Weimo, and Haishang.
