明渡设计工作室于2016年在德国汉堡成立。2019年,工作室将设计业务拓展到中国的“设计之都”— 深圳,将源于德国的设计品质与理念和中国完善的生产与制造体系相结合,致力于为全球客户提供专业的设计服务和原创设计产品。
工作室的设计方向是以家具和家居产品为主,并在平面、交互与空间等设计领域进行开放性的尝试,去不断探索传统与现代,东方与西方,文化与科技相互融合的可能性。

Design Philosophy of Mingdu  明渡设计理念

The studio’s name “Mingdu” refers to the two Chinese characters of “明” (“Ming”) and “渡” (“Du”). Composed of “日” (“the sun”) and “月” (“the moon”), "明" represents the unity of Yin and Yang, the law of nature, as well as a bright future. “渡” takes its meaning from Heart Sutra, meaning the process of crossing with wisdom from one side to the other, helping others as well as oneself walk to the bright and promising future. 
“MIingdu” is what we name our studio and entails our design philosophy: to design in accordance with the law of nature; to connect design with society; to bring others to hope and future via design. Those are the issues we intend to think over and explore both at present and in the future, our mission.

 “明”是由日和月组成,代表着阴阳的统一和自然运行的规律,同时也代表着光明和未来。“渡”字取自《心经》中的“照见五蕴皆空,渡一切苦厄”,它是代表着用智慧从此岸到达彼岸的过程,帮助他人并共同走向光明和希望。 
“明渡”既是我们工作室名字,也代表着我们设计哲学。如何让设计符合自然运行的规律;如何让设计更多地与社会相连接;如何用我们的设计帮助他人,将人们带向希望。这是我们在现在和未来要去思考和探索的问题,也是我们做设计的初衷和使命。
