Chi Wing Lo

"Perhaps there exists the solidity of the void, the materiality of the invisible, something one can only feel but intangible, be hinted but led open infinitely. That may be how I wish my obsession with such timeless virtues like humility and serenity could be translated in matter. " Chi Wing explained...



Founder of DIMENONE CHI WING LO, a brand of furniture designed and made in Italy under his close direction, Lo has been actively pursuing design in Italy for almost two decades. He is still the only Chinese architect and designer to be embraced by the prestigious circle of contemporary Italian design.

In 2006, Lo was among the Italian Delegates to transmit the spirit of  Italian design in Russia. His aspiration for timelessness has brought his designs to international attention and many of his earlier works continue to be much sought after today. In 2007, Lo was invited by the Hong Kong Design Centre to contribute a design to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Hong Kong's unification with China. The same year, the Radio Television Hong Kong broadcast a documentary of  his life and work. He was the art director for Giorgetti from 2004-2006 and was the chairman of the jury for the St. Petersburg Design Biennale in 2009. His tower house in Athens was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Prize in Architecture in 2009.

At Foshan, Guangzhou, in 2010, he organized and chaired an international design conference on a theme addressing the need of original design in China. Most recently, he also contributes to Kanjian Creation, a leading platform with a cultural initiative in promoting contemporary designs inspired by Chinese traditional crafts.

Since 2012, Lo has also presented his sculptures in solo exhibitions: Chi Wing Lo - The Light and Soul of an Object, Chi Wing Lo - Journey of Imagination, Chi Wing Lo - Vision of a Civilization, in Italy and the South East Asia Raised in Hong Kong, Lo received his Master Degree in Architecture from Harvard University with the best thesis prize in 1988. He had taught at the Syracuse University, NY, and had been a member of the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart.
