Schooled in the United States at UC Berkeley and, respectively, Harvard and Princeton, Philippines-born Lyndon Neri (b.1965) and Taiwanese-born Rossana Hu (b.1968) have together become one of the most dynamic design forces in China today. They moved to Shanghai in 2002 while working for American architect Michael Graves on his renovation of that city’s landmark Three on the Bund project. The husband-and-wife team established their Shanghai showroom Design Republic, selling contemporary design, in 2003. In 2004, they established their design company, Neri&Hu Design and Research Office. Since then, they have taken on architecture and interiors projects including the restaurants and nightclubs. Simultaneously, as Neri&Hu, they have created independently-produced, contemporary furniture and objects that have been sold around the world.
