Author(s): Lyndon Neri; Rossana Hu
In 2014, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu were named Designers of the Year by Wallpaper, largely for work they had created under the name of Neri & Hu Design and Research Office. The duo founded the firm in 2004 in Shanghai, with an additional office in London, and for more than a decade now it has been the source of incredibly creative, innovative architectural designs for projects around the globe. The first book ever published on the firm, Neri & Hu Design and Research Office presents a broad selection of its work in architecture and product design, lavishly illustrated. The projects covered include seven renovations in Shanghai; three retail spaces, including Neri & Hu's office building; beautiful designs for a tea service, chair, table, and picnic basket; and several major ongoing projects, including a private residence in Florida and hotel renovations in London and Shanghai. A beautifully produced book, with contributions from Alejandro Taera Polo and David Chipperfield, Neri & Hu Design and Research Office is a testament to a firm working at the height of its powers.
Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu are the founders of Neri & Hu Design and Research Office.
