In synergy with the growing interior design business, Steve Leung has branched out into furniture design. Manufactured and distributed through MAXXA, the first two series, the “i-chi” launched in 2001, and the “Cube” in 2003, became instantly popular in China and Japan, the European and other Asian markets – marking another milestone in his design career. The third series, “Ling Long”, launched in 2005, representing a crossover of Chinese and Western classical elements reinterpreted in contemporary language, with a refreshing touch of minimalism.
In 2006, Steve was invited by a famous Japanese brand to design a whole new series, the “Tenchi”, to cater solely for the Japanese lifestyle. In 2010, Steve further enhanced the design of “i-chi” and launched its second generation – “i-chi II”, as well as the fifth furniture series “Luxe” in 2011. In 2015, Steve joined hand with Visionnaire, the leading Italian brand of luxury home furniture, to launch a new furniture collection“Nature’s Jewel Box”.
