I am an industrial designer and I have been fascinated by product design. My previous design works mainly come from the integrative interactions between user, product and surrounding as I believe they simultaneously affect each other and together improve the experience and quality of life. Hence the design process has always gone through observation of user behaviour in all conceivable surroundings a head of time to find the opportunity of new interaction and experience.
