The Warm Afternoon Tea

Tea Light is a re-design and upgraded to Teelicht, a warmer for teapot. The overall shape is formed by a stretched hexahedron cutting into two halves which fit each other with a continuous curve. The gap in the middle ensures the air circulation and stabilizes the air flow. A hexagon is formed by circular cutting on top for a balanced aesthetic appreciation.

Apollinaris Teapot Design

This project was commissioned by Apollinaris of Germany, a company selling potable water, to design a special teapot representing their corporate identity in September 2005. Multiple access to the handle is one of the spotlights in my design. I was inspired by the Chinese tradition that people serves for each other when having tea.

Tchibo Design Competition

This spoon is designed for children and patient who has difficulty on taking liquid medicine. It’s awarded the first prize in Tchibo Design Competition on August 2010. Tchibo, a Germen company which sponsors design competitions on daily product, bears love of human and life in their products.

Frauhofer Project

This project was recommended by Prof. Kramer to develop new product series on Zink with Frauhofer, a metal research center in Bremen, in October 2005. My rocket egg holder, with perfect combination of the egg and the holder, was chosen and gone to production.

Retro umbrella knob design

Retro is a Latin word which means return. This design of umbrella knob is the first project of our studio Haoyuli Design which was founded by Steffen and me in Oldenburg. It won big portion in Hong Kong and Taiwan markets. A new technology of closing umbrella was applied in this design. My client bought this intellectual property from Russian weapon engineering company. The first model was finished in HFK Bremen and I came across the real sample in Hong Kong Daily Goods Expo in 2006. The one in the picture is a souvenir bought from Taiwan on a rainy day in 2011.
