“We hope that…people will use our designs as practical, elegant objects that are a graceful accompaniment to life.”
“The main idea behind Afteroom is to be an advocate of the traces of time. All our designs share the spirit of this thought.”
“Both of us love timeless things. The notion of placing memories, emotions, and thoughtful simplicity in an object is really romantic.”
When working together, Wei and Chen first discuss ideas. Then, Chen draws sketches and designs 3D models, after which Wei takes over as art director, picking colors and finishes and ultimately determining which projects are a good fit to undertake. Both designers agree it’s Wei’s sensibilities that determine their artistic direction.
