My name is May Liu, I am an experience orientated Interior designer. My works contain a broad range of spatially related topics: from architectural space to interior fixtures. The concept of user experience and communication plays an important role throughout my designs. With great passion in interior design, architecture, lighting, and material, I wish to become a dedicated individual who solves existing problems in our living and working environment, and help people redefine the true meaning of a space.
