About me
Fun, Creative, Adventurous, Thoughtful. Having proceeded into the design field eight years ago, Cynthia has worked on a wide range of projects in different scales in the UK and Hong Kong, from small interventions to large architectural projects. Her work sits between art and architecture with the intention of bringing aspect of fun and uniqueness into people’s daily life and enriching their spatial experience. Her interest lies in interdisciplinary design, where she looks into branding, installation, art, narrative design, and the integration between those subjects with architecture.

  • Toxic Wonderland
    Toxic WonderlandThe installation commissioned by 100% Design for The Forum is a savage interpretation of Alice’s garden gone wrong, a vividly monochrome dream rendered in handcrafted macramé. Taking inspiration from the textile and fashion industry, the Forum recreates the classical proportions of the venue’s architecture in a soft and tactile material gesture. The simplicity of the scheme and scale of the arch, 3 metres wide by 3 metres high, is meant to connect the onlooker to the grand scale of the gallery
