Ben Wu

Founder, W.DESIGN
Ben Wu’s route into the design industry began in his childhood when he learned Chinese ink painting from Fu Wenyan, the last disciple of master artist Zhang Daqian, thus gaining a profound cultural and artistic heritage. He proposed “Modern Orientalism” in combination with modern design language and Oriental aesthetic consciousness, presenting an Oriental atmosphere in contemporary space. Modern Orientalism has formed a wide influence in China and the world from design to lifestyle. Besides, Wu won the 24th Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the Year Award, which got significant attention from mainstream media. It is also praised by Robb Report as “The victory marks the rise of Chinese interior design." Ben Wu’s work ranges 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 such as W.Design, WS Space, Weimo, and Haishang.
