My name is Phuong Dao and I am a Furniture Designer based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
I prefer to keep the balance between artistic works and manufacture; how to use design as a main factor in mass production.
The more I go, the more I want to contribute to my career and to nurture the creativity of creating useful things for my community and the nature. Life is a journey, and such I am pursuing my dream to become an entrepreneur in the furniture industry, and to design lovely and environmentally friendly products.
I believe product design with industrialization makes a huge impact on the environment, economy and society. According to UNICEF, Vietnam is one of the sixth most vulnerable countries to climate change, with children and women particularly at risk.
As a designer, that problem reminds me that I need to do something to make a change for a better environment and community through my working contribution.
For me, designers play an important role in any industry because we have the ability to bring creativity, becoming a motivation for innovation in the production process and technique. Building a sustainable business system with good designs and friendly material is my entire focus in the future.
