CO-FOUNDER OF MULTIDISCIPLINARY DESIGN STUDIO LIM + LU
My professional ambition is to leave something behind that people can remember me by. I became a designer because designers leave behind a legacy, whether it’s a building, an object or a piece of furniture. Great furniture pieces live in other people’s lives, get passed down and become something that lives on beyond you. My definition of success is measured by happiness. It’s enjoying what you do and doing it in an honest manner. As my grandmother says, “It’s not about how much money you make, but rather how you make it.” The best advice I’ve ever
received is don’t bite off more than you can chew. As a small studio, we grow by taking on more projects, but after a while it gets to a point where you’re spreading yourself too thin, and there are consequences to that. There’s only so much time in the day. Don’t listen to people who advise you to always say yes.
