Yuxuan is an interior designer based in New York. Her early working experience as a production designer in several students’ films during her study at Boston University ignited her interest in interior design. The sensual nature of architecture and interiors is the atmospheric qualities. It is an indispensable element not only in filmmaking but also in design. Yuxuan found the idea of fostering a relationship within a spatial experience is much more important rather than a fixed scene during her MFA Interior Design program at Parsons. She found interior design thrives when building refreshing yet restorative and delightful experiences for individuals. Spatial experience can heal and alter the users' feelings and ways of living.
