Who are you guys?
We are Feng and Liu! Thinkers and artists, dreamers and fools, we are brothers from different mothers who both taught us the importance of a cultivated life.

We wanted to bring calligraphy to the modern home. We wanted to add a contemporary twist to our ancient heritage. We wanted to create interiors with culture and edge. Afterall, we are young thinkers bored of mundane framed artwork, and hanging calligraphy scrolls at home felt a little… well, out of mode. So came the idea of calligraphing Chinese words and poetry directly on walls, kinda like graffiti. We experimented a little more, and ZEN was born.
