Chinese designers Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu discussed their past and upcoming projects, as well as their research into China's disappearing village culture, during a lecture and on-stage interview with Dezeen's founder Marcus Fairs at Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2019.
Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu of Shanghai studio Neri&Hu were this year's guests of honour at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair.
As guests of honour, the Chinese architects designed the main exhibition called The Unfolding Village, a long structure made from locally sourced timber, which is based on the narrow, sinuous alleyways found in many Chinese villages.
The installation was the result of recent research by Neri&Hu into the disappearing villages of China, which the duo discuss in their talk.
The pair also discussed their past and upcoming projects in China and abroad.
We live-streamed a number of talks on 6 February, including an earlier talk with designer Matti Klenell about the design of the new public spaces at Stockholm's Nationalmuseum, and a one-on-one conversation with French designer Matali Crasset.
The Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2019 took place from 5 to 9 February 2019.
