Erco Lai

Exploring the boundaries between design, technology and materials. As an industrial designer and maker, Erco Lai is driven by a passion for circularity, using nature as his guide to create a symbiosis between human systems and the environment. His design approach is listening to a matter by hand-on experiments and shaping it in the most "natural" way.


Within his practices, Erco Lai attempts to create the beauty of balancing between the control of design in the digital realm and the spontaneity of materials in reality. He is constantly seeking to give materials meaningful forms and create a unique aesthetic language. Meanwhile, he focuses on rethinking linear manufacturing and defining the future of craftsmanship, art and sustainability.
