IED Alumni: Wendi Zhao, Interior Design
Wendi Zhao, from China, believed that to become a great designer she needed to get immersed in a special creative atmosphere, therefore she chose to study in Milan, world capital of design, attending the Undergraduate course in Interior Design at IED Milano. Then she decided to go back to Shanghai, where she immediately started to work at Studio Doho, an architecture and interior design studio.
Among the most interesting projects she developed, there is Bistro 2555, a Scandinavian café located in the Shanghai Art District West Bund, in an industrial space that first served as an airport, then as a runway, and now is marked as architectural heritage.
