Tianyi Fu

Class of 2022


Tianyi received his bachelor’s degree in industrial design from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. He was so curious about the world that he never considered committing himself to one field. He is a furniture designer, user experience designer, harp player, musical instrument digital interface (MIDI) artist, former exhibition curator at the National Museum of China, and former algorithm intern at a startup company.

Throughout his career, Tianyi has explored new areas without giving up his love of design. He believes that design is truly interdisciplinary and that a designer can find unique inspiration from various fields. Tianyi is looking forward to living and studying in New York City, a city with a hodgepodge of culture and art. His ambitious goal is to make a difference in the field of interaction design and make peoples’ lives easier.
