I would like to briefly introduce myself first – my name is Fan Lip Hoong, I am 21 years old and I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I have always had a great passion for interior designing which developed form a love of designing catalogues. So, I have the chance to come to Accademia Riaci, Florence, Italy to master my designing skills. I want to develop my knowledge of interior designing in Italy. In future, I intend to help people with my creative ideas in decorating and designing to help them make their space look attractive also give them what they are looking for.

簡単に自己紹介をしたいと思います。名前はFan Lip Hong、歳は21才でマレーシアのクアラルンプールに住んでいます。そして少し前にマレーシアのBandar Sunwayを卒業したばかりです。すっと海外で勉強する事を夢見ており、デザインカタログへの愛から生まれたインテリアデザインへの情熱ををずっとお持ち続けていました。そして、イタリアのフィレンツェにあるアカデミアリアチでデザインスキルを習得する機会を得ました。イタリアでインテリアデザインについての知識を深め、自分のデコレーションとデザインの創造力を使って人々の空間を魅力的にしたり、彼らが求めてるものを作る手助けができればと思います。

Interior Design 6-One Year Course 2017(Student2)

This week I showed my carpentry drawing – Image (17) -. This is a tv cabinet design. And lecturer was happy with my work. After that he gave me a new task which was quite hard. He asked me to sketch out my own idea design which he did not give me any guide. He asked me to sketch out what design I like and then only based on that sketch to do what I project. So, next week he’ll ask me to show him the sketches that he wants.
