Profile Neri & Hu:
Detecting the future by recollecting the past


Neri & Hu design and research office (NHRDO) is an interdisciplinary studio for architecture, product design, interior design and graphic design based in Shanghai.

In 2015, “Das Haus – Interiors on Stage” actually turns into a stage – a setting-like structure of spacious interiors and “housing cages” of various sizes that are supposed to question our conception of the home.

gets a new home


During imm cologne 2014, it was already quite clear that the “Das Haus” format would be recycled. The installation is to find a new home on a youth camp located on a farm.
