Jeff Dayu Shi, a devotee in using bamboo
and other natural material in his creations, believes in “a good design is not
merely about aesthetic appearance, it should be a carrier of creative
wisdom”. In his search of a harmonized
unification of material, craftsmanship and cultural essence, during this time
of resource scarcity, Shi poses challenges in creating breakthroughs in
craftsmanship and techniques that are reflective to modern times, through
sophisticated characteristics that exceed the common confines of the material
medium, to offer solutions to current and potential lifestyle concerns. His
creativities are gaining spotlights around international design scene.
