About

Lifestyle Design Center is the crossroad of life and design.

In an age overflowing with things and information.
Lifestyle Design Center illuminates the intangible as well as the tangible,paying attention to small stories.
Through the experience of seeing, touching, and sensing,we ask: what is true abundance, what is culture?
We value the creation of a space for dialogue,to touch on the roots of life and ask each other why .
