Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, both from China, studied architecture at Berkeley in California. In 2004, they founded their studio in Shanghai with a specific idea in mind: to fuse local culture with an international spirit. The pair faces projects that range from interiors, contract and product design: from hotels to museums, from restaurants to showrooms. The studio's design team is made up of people from across the world, blending 30 different cultures and languages. From this melting pot comes a synthesis: their pieces are essential and simultaneously of great character. Like those coming from the collaboration with Offecct, De La Espada or Poltrona Frau: furniture made with fine materials that reflects a contemporary idea of China that meets the West. Because Neri & Hu already boast many followers in our part of the world. It's not by chance that, in 2015, the furniture fair in Cologne entrusted Neri & Hu with the creation of Das Haus and, in the same year, the book, 'Neri and Hu: Design and Research Office', was published. International recognition for their work.
