Weiche Wu 巫瑋哲 is a Taiwanese designer. He studied Industrial Design at Chang Gung University in Taiwan and received his MA in Industrial Design from Central St. Martins, London. In addition to product design, Weiche also specialises in graphic design, photography and critical design thinking. His expertise lies in shaping products in a very visual way, which in short means designing with a priority on aesthetics.


In 2011, Weiche worked with the French company, Rémy Martin, to generate a new concept for their heritage Louis XIII brand. The final outcome ’Cérémonie pour un Roi’ and ‘L'essence de Rémy Martin’ have been featured at MAISON & OBJECT in Paris, Salone in Milan, Wallpaper Magazine and in other global media.


Upon graduation from Central St. Martins, he joined Benjamin Hubert’s studio in London and participated in several iconic projects such as ‘Tenda’ lamp and ‘Construction Site’ in 2012 Designjunction.


In 2012, he founded Taipei based Union Atelier. The studio works on varying design commissions and collaborations; and with the deliberate intention to combine international design trends with Taiwanese traditions, the team has created, and consistently applies, their own unique signature design language.

Orange has asked the students of four Art & Design schools to rethink the mobile/earphone interface as a whole, with a single objective: imagine the new gadget that the whole world will want to use with their mobile.

This project will run from October to December 2010 in cooperation with ENSCI (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle), STRATE COLLEGE DESIGNERS, ECOLE DUPERRE, and MAID (Master Industrial Design) at CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS in London.





The hands-free kit is designed with partially flexible wires, which can be bended and shaped up rapidly. Users can assembly parts of the flexible wires to fit the specific usage. By adjusting and winding the flexible wires around the ears or any part of the head to fix the ear-set that are suitable for particular situations.



For instance, by bending the wires to move the microphone close to the mouth, users would feel at ease during the phone calls; in addition, by winding around the ears, the earphone can be attached well whilst doing exercise as well as the sports headphone.

Furthermore, the headset is wearable such as a necklace; users can assembly parts of wires with different colours or even textures on the surfaces to represent the individual’s style and taste.
