Alex Xie, was born in Shandong Province, China in 1983.And graduated from Shanghai Donghua University (DHU) in 2007. Founded X&Collective Design (XCoD) in 2013.
I believes strongly in research as a design tool, as each project bears its unique set of contextual issues. A critical probing into the specificities of program, site, function, and history is essential to the creation of rigorous design work.
We enjoy to keep some old memories of the project or the owner in the case, We hope each case retains its unique history and story, the content can be stylish, material, or just by some design the original intention is to do memory or inductive expression.
Has won several design awards since XCoD establishment.Including Gold of IAI AWARDS, Excellence of A&D TROPHY AWARDS, Best 10 of APIDA, Best Design Of The Year of JINTANG PRIZE, Nominated “Designer of the Year” by A’ Design Award, Silver A' Design Award Winner for Interior Space and Exhibition Design Category in 2016...
