UUENDY LAUa novel and original design laboratory. “Double U” is a unique recognition of our founder. It is not only a symbol of Double Happiness ‘ üü ’, but also a language strengthening the connections among individuals ü-ü . We are interested in stimulating discourses and conversation through art, design, fashion objects, illustration and lifestyle creations. One of the main themes of our projects centres on ‘animals’, a universal subject permeating all cultures, languages and lives, and they also correspond with our design principle emphasising 'interaction', ‘life’ and ‘surprise’.
