Vincent Lim

Lim + Lu is an award-winning inter-disciplinary design practice initiated in New York, currently based in Hong Kong. Lim + Lu works internationally providing architecture, interior, furniture, and product design services. Co-founders Vincent Lim and Elaine Lu met at Cornell University during their architecture studies. When the duo initiated Lim + Lu as a side project in 2013, Vincent was an architect at Kohn Pedersen Fox New York while Elaine focused on retail interiors at Tiffany & Co. After trying their hands at ICFF 2014 with several furniture prototypes and receiving much acclaim, the duo decided to move to Hong Kong to pursue Lim + Lu full time in 2015. Since both Lim and Lu were born and raised in the East, educated and practiced in the West, a balance of both cultures is essential to the duo and always translated through their design. Lim + Lu aims to initiate a constant dialogue between the user and the object through the user’s continual interaction with their designs. These designs are fully completed only through the actions of the audience. Since inception, Lim + Lu has won numerous awards and recognitions such as Forbes “30 Under 30” Asia 2018, Rising Asian Talent by Maison et Objet 2017, 40 Under 40 by Perspective Magazine, and the 100 Most Influential Architects and Designers in 2017 by AD China. Currently, Lim + Lu is working on projects in Hong Kong, New York, Copenhagen, and other cities.
