Shifandi Sun

Master of Design in Designed Objects

Shifandi Sun is a Chinese designer, interested in seeking ways to address the lifestyles of people and design for their needs. A core driver towards her design philosophy is the user experience. One of her strongest tools is her comfort with many types of materials and finishes, accumulated through her experience across many types of products. Shifandi works well under limitations and sees them as an opportunity to build careful and subtle solutions. Because of this, she is often seen as a meticulous designer.

Shifandi received her bachelor’s in Product Design from the University of Oregon and is currently a Master’s candidate and Merit Scholar in Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Shifandi aims to one day have her own design practice as she believes that reality is filled with limits but the power of design is limitless.
