Li Xiang Founder

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. She was awarded three times Andrew Martin' s International Interior Design Award, 2 Platinum award and 9 Golden award in A' Design Awards. Li Xiang is the first Chinese designer that was invited as a jury member of the Frame Awards. In 2020, she was selected as the only Chinese designer in FAST COMPANY: ‘Global: Most Creative People in Business’ that year. Owing to Li' s guidance and management, X+Living with its unique surreal fantasy space aesthetics has become one of the leading design forces with great international influence and was chosen as the jury winner of Best Commercial Firm in 2022 Architizer A+ Awards.
