Taiwanese design firm DHH (Dong Hai Hospital) Studio has harmonized concepts of design, human anatomy and medical practice.
Designer, Gina Hsu, is concurrently acting as a lecturer at Shih Chien University in the Department of Industrial Design, as well as project manager for DHH Studio. She has participated in the artist and design fair, “Beautiful Chaos” at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, was the curator for Taiwan Designers Week’s “City Yeast” project, and exhibited with “Yii” at the 2010 Salone Internazionale del Mobile Furniture Fair in Milan, and the 2009 Paris MAISON & OBJET exhibition.
The design inspirations for the DHH series comes from the childhood memory of Gina Hsu. Hsu was born and raised in a family which her grandfather and father were both medical practitioners. Unlike the ordinary family, home was a regional hospital but also a playground where she shuttled through it as a child. The mixing emotions of hospital and her happy childhood memory became an important element for her design inspiration.
