Interview with Weimo Feng

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I’m Feng Weimo, the founder of MOD - Moshe Architecture Design (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Master of Architecture of Paris E.S.A (Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture) and Chinese Outstanding Youth of Design of 2016-2017 40 UNDER 40. Feng Weimo once studies in France and worked in Ateliers Jean Nouvel. He went back China in 2011 and founded MOD. My father is an artist. Influenced by him, I started painting when I was six. At the age of eight, I took the bus to the art gallery to learn painting with a drawing board higher than myself on my back. Since then, I have spent half my life in drawing. However, without being a painter, I have become my ideal role as a designer.
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
Founded in Shanghai, our company is a comprehensive design team composed of more than 80 new and vigorous designers with diversified specialties. We mainly focus on developing interior design, soft decoration design and projects of related fields.
What is "design" for you?
Design can help people solve problems and improve their life quality.
What was the first thing you designed for a company?
It is an art museum, developed by a well-known developer in China. I'm glad that the first project I undertook was the one I liked very much.
Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
I will pay closer attention to the regional culture and customs, as well as the habits and customs of users.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
The progress of interior design is relatively quick, and it takes a short time from conception, proposal detailing to final implementation. For most of our design works, people usually have some sensory feelings, such as the visual effect and the experience, but they cannot feel the logic of thinking, emergent problems, choice making and judgment in our design. All of these will affect the final result. Our team hopes to record the whole procedure and share it timely so that participators can understand this procedure. It is usually the time we enjoy the most. After we get a proposal, we will not get into production immediately. Before you know well demands of an owner or you can judge the thing intuitively, your every action is uncertain. So we would rather spend a lot of time on thinking and discussion to accumulate materials and make a summary. During this period, we will establish a lot of data analysis and space models until the whole project is finished. We will timely summarize and share these achievements. We prefer such a working mode.
Can you describe a day in your life?
I get up at 7:30 and arrive at the office at 9:30 every day. I deal with the company affairs in the morning, judge the success of the team in the afternoon, and think about the key projects further in the evening.
What skills are most important for a designer?
The sensitivity on the judgment of things and continuous learning ability.
How long does it take to design an object from beginning to end?
Some short-term projects may only take me three days, and the longest project design took me six years.
What are your future plans? What is next for you?
I was an architectural designer, but now I am an interior designer. When I was in Paris, architectural design and interior design were finished together, which needed a macro thinking mode. Every time when I receive a new project, I hope to know more information relating to the project, including local cultures and people's living habits. That needs a lot of knowledge to support. I hope that I can spend a lot time and vigor on traveling and exploring and collect materials and seek for design inspiration around the world. Travel is very important for each designer, because we should learning variety of information to design different types of projects. I will go to different countries to experience different cultures to enrich my life and record the most beautiful things in my eyes at different times and in different places when travelling. I hope every day in my life is a new beginning rather than every day is the same.
Do you work as a team, or do you develop your designs yourself?
We work as a team. I will point out the design direction in the meeting and lead the team to deepen the design until the project is completed.
