Eric Chan, founder and director of ECCO Design, a New York design consultancy, received the World’s Outstanding Chinese Designer (WOCD) award from the Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) last week.
The WOCD award was created to honor designers of Chinese heritage who have displayed superb ability, attained great achievements within their own discipline, and devoted themselves to the furthering of design. According to Mr. Lo, “We seek to enlighten the world of the outstanding achievements and individuals of our community and, ideally, inspire future generations to come.”
Chosen by a panel of judges consisting of design academics, professionals and prominent industry members, the WOCD is bestowed only on individuals who are nominated and endorsed fully by the panel and is not necessarily awarded annually.
"Creating product that is meaningful, responsive and imparts a sense of cultural relevancy are personal priorities. My journey from China to the United States has been rich and fulfilling over the last 30 years and this award embraces these aspirations fully. I am truly grateful to be recognized in such a meaningful way,” said Chan.
Chan has also received an IDEA Award from ISDA, Red Dot from Germany and GoodDesign Award from the Chicago Athenaeum.
