Studio Introduction

“ Tree on tree grows from peak to peak; grass on grass looks lush far and nigh. ” The poem is from the poet Cao Cao’s quatrain “ The sea ” in the late Eastern Han Dynasty, the designer Femo Wong’s name is taken from the first and last words of the poem. The grass and trees welcome spring with rain while inspiration is abundant, after listening to his teacher’s advice, based on the studio initial name “ 丰茂 ”, Femo Wong added the Chinese character components “ 氵 ” which means “ water ” to it, finally “ 沣茂 ” became the formal name of the studio, and pronounced as “ Femo ”, from which his English name Femo Wong was also born from this.

The logo of the studio evolves the letter “ FEMO ” into a combination of arrows, which not only conforms to the original letter form, but also has imagery of guiding. The logo expresses the sense “ design leads life ” and reflects the pioneering temperament of Femo Design Studio as a design firm.
