Inspired by a Hong Kong icon, legendary martial artist Bruce Lee, the studio applies its philosophy not only in the name, but also in many aspects like management and design execution. The team has dedicated in bringing enthusiastic, original and appealing designs to their clients, as well as fulfilling their own ideal. Back in the summer of 2008, the three co-founders Eugene, Fai and Kylie had a brain storming project which generated loads of innovative concepts, many of them are kitchen related. The results transform into the studio’s own Bewater product line in 2009.
