A Designer A Day: Tian Tang
Tian Tang in 1000 characters.
Born in China, I was educated as an industrial designer.

The desire to turn everyday situations into imaginative moments took me to Sweden to study MFA program called “Child Culture Design” which is the only one in its kind in the world focus on children, and among all, play, which is the primary activity in young people's lives.
Come and Draw

By redesigning functionality in a playful way, I aim to enhance share, aspire other ways to live, learn and play. I strive to build a new type of product languages for children's furniture which  takes its departure from triggering informal play moments in daily life. I am inspired by Reggio Emilia's educational philosophy, and among all, "environment as the third teacher".

Achille Castiglioni is my favourite designer. Currently I work as a freelance at the same time produce my collections in Sweden, and sell mostly in Europe. My parents are in China and my family is in Sweden. They are my best support.
