BUZAO [pronounced Bu-tsao] represents the young, rebellious and spirited. BUZAO engages in a process of unhindered experimentation, free from the intent to create, focusing on presenting its personality through the exploration of natural materials. BUZAO accepts the ego of the fundamental 'self', exposing its essence, unchanged, and celebrates it. BUZAO creates through amplifying what is already there, to reveal and enhance the innate self of the material, letting the material guide the design and dictate the outcome.
Launched in 2017 as a vehicle for the exploration of natural materials, BUZAO is an offshoot of the pioneering, experimental and internationally acclaimed design studio, BENTU.
