Jordy Fu, Designer and Artist: Create Love Through Design

0

Designer, artist and architect Jordy Fu was on the TED 2013 stage this afternoon in Long Beach, simulcast through to the ballrooms of TEDActive in Palm Springs. I discovered the beauty of Jordy Fu’s work, who claims she has one goal: to create love through design, a goal she has had since she was six year’s old, when she had her first solo art exhibition at Beijing Capital Museum. When Fu was seven she published her first book. As an adult, she trained as both an artist and an architect before working for the influential London designers Future Systems.

“Our home should also be art,” says Jordy. “To create a home is to build a dream and every detail should create innovation.”

“Art has no boundaries between the past and the future,” she asserts. Art is always about emotions….it’s not about selling the brand or the product, it’s about selling happiness.”

Fashion can be a really great influence into interior design, and like art, has no boundary. She thinks of the details and texture that you get in fabrics and uses it in buildings inside and out. How many people truly love the house they bought she asks, “Is the house as sensual as you want? As inspirational as you want? As beautiful as they want? As relaxing as you want? Does it make your heart skip a beat? She wants to believe that a home can be extraordinary like diamonds in the sky.

She says, “as architects, we often get criticized for demolishing things and rebuilding things without creativity and thought. But a shopping mall can be a beautiful space, not just a square block. Architecture is about people, it’s not about structure. Why not use elements of the movement of cars or the petals from a flower and incorporate it into a building or a home or a shopping mall?

Jordy asserts that there’s no boundaries between art, design and architecture and nothing is impossible with love. She says, “I want to create things that engage emotions and create love through design.” Some of her work below.
