Neri & Hu
Founded by Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, Neri & Hu is an inter-disciplinary, award winning architectural design practice based in Shanghai, China.
Neri & Hu's product line for De La Espada represents a different aesthetic that is rooted in cultural provocation. It questions the potential in "Chinese design".
“We’re designing it in China and having it made in Portugal. Why? Because it’s really just the best craft we’ve seen so far. What we’re saying is that China needs to step out there and show the world that we can also design and create,” Neri&Hu
