Dutch designer with Asian roots
Ka-Lai Chan, born in the Netherlands in 1985, is the founder of Ka-Lai Chan Design, a design studio in Utrecht that specialises in the design of interior products and creates work for various design labels, hotels, restaurants and other customers. As a Dutch designer of Asian origin, she translates stories, cultures and hidden values into a unique style of functional interior products.
"For me it is so important to create real value and sustainability in the products I design. A beautiful product in itself is not enough, it has to be more to really work. We are heading for a future in which people want to be emotionally connected and captured by a product. I believe that I can translate history, culture, functionality and sustainability into a product and combine them in an unmistakable way. "
