Lin Yang founded the Frank Yang design in 2013. The studio develops business model, concepts and products, based on the core value: Design is a human-based science, concerning with context, aesthetic, meaning and enjoyable. Refined into the affective and simple idea. The studio fulfills the commissions as well as in house assignments. The studio is committed to deliver design on reflection to understanding customers after all. Customers purchase an item with a strong identity and context therefore we believe that good usage and fine details do not have to come at the expense of beauty and fantasy. Every design starts with a deeply understanding of a particular subject or product. Each outcome is unique and tells a story of its own. The studio consists of in-house designers who are educated in industrial design, mechanical design and psychologist: Nelson Chen, Monica Meneses.
