A Product & Furniture Designer based on the US, Wang’s interest lies on the dynamic interaction between people and furniture pieces, which is taken as objects closely related to human bodies. Wang’s fascination by the behavior motivated by the objects led him to the China Academy of Fine Arts where he worked with traditional crafts such as ceramics and lacquer. In 2015, he graduated from TheRhode Island School of Design where he earned his Master of Fine Arts in Furniture and Manufacturing.

Wang is the co-founder of WeLiving, a New York City-based brand that designs furniture and home goods integrating Asian and Western elements together. WeLiving’s philosophy spawns from letting nature lead the design, and all pieces are made of wood material left over from their furniture pieces. Carefully handcrafted, the brand works with local craftsman to design high quality furniture for how people live today, and each piece tells a unique story that encourages us to connect and live.
