About the site:
Wellyears is a combination of “wellness” and “years”, as Li Xu’s goal is to bring wellness to humans for years to come. It’s a term he came up with for his design, trying to build better long-term relationships between humans and objects. The Chinese character Well, 井, can be extended without limits and more interestingly, consists of three straight lines and one special curved stroke that looks like a naughty boy who doesn’t follow his brothers. This character represents his design as well, as he designs objects with unlimited possibilities via a little interesting perspective. That’s Wellyears.
