ViiCHENDESIGN
Other than just a simple object, the emotional design also provides people with a lot of fun and pleasure through the working of sensation and perception. By taking into account the core concept of "Symbiotic Emotion", Vii CHEN explores every aspect of design including concept, detail, present, and future. Vii emphasizes and focuses on utilization of materials and extension of production techniques, it adopts the physical experiences between the user and subject to connect the perception of users with touch memory and result in “Symbiotic Emotion” between people and the subject. It incorporates the image representing the knowledge and experience of human.

In 2013, Vii set up her own studio: ViiCHENDESIGN. As a woman with a unique personal style, Vii seeks inspiration from rich family art and insists on using design language to express her own design thinking and design freedom. Focus on her expertise in emotional design, Vii has won several top international design awards. At the same time of the year, Vii's work " fruit and vegetable peels cup" (double layer ceramic cup) also won her 2013 Red Dot: Junior Prize50, making Vii the first female designer from Taiwan to receive such an honor in addition to more than 20 international awards that she was granted, including iF Design Award, Red Dot Design Award, German Design Award, GOOD DESIGN Award JP, DFA Design for Asia, Shanghai 50/100 Junior Prize, Taiwan Golden Pin Design, Taiwan Good Craft...etc.

As Vii's Symbiotic Emotion begins to influence the design concept of the new generations, Vii takes on her role as a newly-emerged Asian designer whose works cover a wide range of subjects including industrial design, interior design, and furniture design, thereby demonstrating her excellent design in turn of concepts and details. As her works started to gain popularity, Vii was invited several times to serve as an international design judge at a tender age of 30, including Braun Campus Prize Taiwan, Panel of FRANZ AWARD…etc. and experienced in Jury Work for Design Awards and Newcomer Awards. This year, Vii was even invited to serve as the Chief Adjudicator jury and Judge for South Asia Preliminary Selection of Taiwan International Student Design Competition 2018 who facilitates mutual exchange and interaction among international design judges. At the same time, Vii was also invited to the forum of Australia VIVID SYDNEY FESTIVAL to share about her lamp design and modern tea set design under the core concept of Symbiotic Emotion as well as her innovation experience.

By collaborating with partners from all over the world: Japan Hirota Glass, USA camino home, HOTEL INDIGO, Taiwan HOME HOTEL and, Vii has assisted Royal Salute in designing the limited edition of porcelain whiskey bottles which are widely sold in the Asian market. By transforming the British teapot cover and royal crown jewelry into the shape of the oriental teapot and the crown of the emperor, the Royal Salute whiskey wine bottle is associated with the noble and profound tea culture that has been passed down through several generations. Vii has designed a classic style - which is also a porcelain work that combines the experience of the East and West drinks.

In recent years, Vii has deepened her emotional design and launched her art design with the core concept of "Symbiotic Emotion". With the suitability of the material applications showing an experimental creation at different levels, the emotional design presented and promoted by Vii has become a core value that cannot be overlooked in her creations. By integrating her emotion into her design, the emotional designs and functional designs can be further strengthened and optimized.
