Established by founders Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, Design Republic will offer a unique collection of products created by the world's best design talents, many of which have never been made available to consumers in China. Design Republic will also collaborate with many designers both foreign and local to create products that will explore a new modern Chinese aesthetic.
Design Republic stands for a new birth of life and style. At its foundation, it is a republic of life - life that creates meaning and understanding through its relationship to objects of habitation. We seek to explore the relationship between people and the simple objects they use in life - a plate, a teacup, a chair; it is here where we discover the beauty of everyday life.
Design Republic is also a republic of style - style that creates new ideologies in design, retail, and merchandising concepts embodying a distinctive aesthetic for contemporary China. We cross traditional boundaries to merge old and new, traditional and modern, opulent and austere, to ultimately create a dynamic platform of design.
