RooMoo, founded in Shanghai, is based on a definite relationship between architecture, interior and product design, which has been a driving force to create projects with subtle transitions between these disciplines. We pursue the integrity and the quality of the design since the beginning of a project until accomplishment. The understanding of the local culture and of internationalization, make us explore the critical point in between. We know how to challenge traditional boundaries to new contemporary perspectives and also how to re-use local culture touch into modern design.
Since 2015, our projects have been recognized by many professional design media such as Design Boom, gooood, MD, Frame, AD, Elle China etc. Our projects have also been expanded to Malaysia, as well as France, and other countries. We are happy to be able to cooperate with international and local companies like, Canada Goose, Whatever, Lecoq, Mofang.
