BuildMost丨HONIDEA Design: Read the Space with Your Body

“We care more about how people, environment, and objects connect. Any space can be read and experienced by your body and the meaning of space lies in how a space nurtures people’s lives.”

A Special Design Work from HONIDEA Design

Project "The Power of Tranquility" is a private villa in Foshan, China. The project isn’t of large scale, but the successes of design, product selections, and the landing of the design all are the result of the close cooperation of HONIDEA Design’s different teams.

Yang Mingbin said: "Design is a discipline that exists in a systematic and logical relationship, not just an external form."

HONIDEA Design cares more about how people, the environment, and objects connect. Making spaces compatible with the traffic flow and the special textures of the environment are important factors in HONIDE Design's work. Delicate changes in shades of colors and rich spatial layers can evoke people’s emotions.

"Before we start any projects, we would make in-depth conversations with the project owners and try to find out what the core needs are. We would stop being a "design company" and suddenly become a project owner, hoping we can see things differently. We think this would help us to come up with a real solution quicker."

Designer Yang Mingbin, the design director of HONIDEA Design told us that, a professional designer would have to do great in functional space planning and proportion controlling to be called a pro. However, that is basic. Besides that, he hopes that he can change perspectives when designing to offer a design that solves the project owner’s needs better. Designer Yang Mingbin also said: “Design is a discipline with system and logic, and it is not just how a space externally looks.”

Professionalism Wins Trust

HONIDEA Design takes communication with clients very seriously. "The success of this project is inseparable from the trust of the project owner. This is crucial." The project owner’s trust has empowered the design team to give a hundred perfect of what the team has to offer.

Project "The Power of Tranquility" has greatly satisfied the project owner, if not highly exceeded his expectation. The details of lighting, choice of colors, and product selections have all been perfected. The full, comprehensive communication between the design team and the construction team has resulted in the successful landing of the design. This is the power of a one-stop design solution.


When it comes to the way of communicating with clients, HONIDEA Design thinks that many of the clients would make some abstract expression of information they collect from social media platforms, like the styles they like, and the furniture they want. The information they have is often diverse, sporadic, and unsystematic. A designer’s job would be to integrate the information from clients to make a satisfactory design.

Designers are professional to decide proportions, textures, and color choices in that they are mostly academically trained with courses and long-term practices. They make well-thought-out decisions in a systematic way. 

In the project "The Power of Tranquility", the owner had a disagreement with the design team over the choice of lighting fixtures. But in the end, the project owner chose to trust the professionalism of the designer and it turns out great.

In the future, HONIDEA Design will continue industrial in design, to delve deep into the essence of space, to design a product that people actually need, and to focus on topics that are closely related to people’s daily life.
