BANMOO, founded in 2006 in Shanghai, by Lv yongzhong, Chinese architect and artist, is a contemporary Chinese furniture and lifestyle brand.

“Ban”, or halfness, is a quintessential quest for the balance of utility and Taoism. “Moo”, or wood, represents the exploration on materials and forms which contain the origin of natural life.

Influenced by his parents who were both teachers, Lv Yongzhong was fascinated on traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy. Making use of his two decades achievements on architecture and interior design, he creatively combines fine materials, engineered comfort and exquisite craftsmanship with Eastern wisdom, for those who seek peacefulness and serenity in the hectic urban life, to explore on modern Chinese furniture that saw its peak during the Ming Dynasty.
