Iā€™m an Industrial Designer based in San Francisco, California. With my curious mind, I strive to learn everything about anything. My education at RISD empowers me to explore the unknown while designing empathically and holistically to develop practical solutions. My Hong Kong heritage, American education and international experiences has also influenced my design work to prioritize universality and sensitivity.

I enjoy tinkering with different materials as a means to explore the physical world around me, while bringing a bit of beauty and joy to it. Besides design, my second passion in life is bachata and salsa dancing. I have danced since college and will continue to twist and twirl with no intention of stopping.

Currently, I am the industrial design fellow at Chronicle Books coming up with the next perfect gift (and packaging) and a UIUX designer for PRAISE HK. If you have any questions, suggestions, or business queries, please feel free to contact me at philip.hy.lau@gmail.com.
