Kaii Tu is a designer working across disciplines and industries, from furniture to interactive experiences, to household products you can find on supermarket shelves today.  What unites his diverse designs is a blending of analytical thinking and craft, supported by an investigation into the histories and contextual narratives behind objects and actions alike.

Kaii graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University with a degree in Visual and Environmental Studies, where he was awarded the Lenore Wilson Prize.  He joined Procter & Gamble after graduating, rising to be one of the youngest Brand Managers in the company. At P&G he honed his skills in product, packaging, and digital innovation, delivering over $100 million in new products and experiences.

Kaii continued his design studies at the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands (Propedeuse) and California College of the Arts, graduating with High Distinction.  He was subsequently awarded the Windgate Fellowship for emerging designers, one of the largest awards in art and design in the United States.  He has exhibited nationally, including the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, NeoCon in Chicago, and San Francisco Design Week, and has received international press accolades from Dwell, Fast Company, and Design Milk, among others.  Kaii is currently working with the renowned designer Jaime Hayon.
