In 2011, Li Xiang founded X+Living Architectural Design in Shanghai, and has ever since been building her own design team working at the cutting edge of art, fashion and business. She has gained cross-field achievements by exploring interior design as an architect, creating many design works with commercial and aesthetic values in the culture, retail, hotel and other industries. Her high-profile design has become the benchmark in aesthetic design and strategic design, and won international recognition with a series of top international awards. Li Xiang is the first Chinese designer that was invited as a jury member of the Frame Awards, the first and only global interior-design awards. Owing to her guidance and management, X+Living has become an excellent design team with international presence, and continues to convey its unique design ideas to the world.
To master the integration of furniture with space design, Li established the furniture brand XiangCASA in 2015, and has succeeded in presenting optimal spacial integrity. Her utilization of retailing infuses XiangCASA's pioneering artistic ideas into our daily life, aiming to bridge the gap between art and life.
