Drawing upon his profound foundation of Chinese traditional art, Ben Wu has created his own unique design philosophy: ‘Modern Orientalism’

Having worked in the interiors industry for more than 20 years, Ben's journey into design began with his studies of traditional Chinese ink paintings with Mr. Fu Wenyan, the last student of Zhang Daqian, a legendary Chinese artist. In 1998, Wu established WS DESIGN, which now develops multiple design and lifestyle brands including W.DESIGN, WS SPACE, Weimo and Haishang.

From Shanghai to New York, Wu has worked on both residential and commercial projects, consistently applying his personal 'Modern Oriental' design philosophy to each. It is an ethos which integrates the elegant design of Western humanism with Eastern aesthetics and philosophical thinking, creating a new style of interiors that has become a mainstream pillar of Chinese design. As a designer, he is widely involved from public space to private clubs, from celebrities' mansions to protected historical structures, as well as art exhibitions.
