FánYuàn is founded in 2021 by Li Yifan and Qian Ningyue in Shanghai, China.

Li Yifan graduated from the Beijing Institute Of Fashion Technology and graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Master's degree in Textiles. Qian Ningyue graduated from Shanghai Academy of Fine Arts in the Sculpture department with a Bachelor's degree and is studying for a Master's degree in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art.

FánYuàn is a brand of artistic furniture derived from the fusion of the two principals, each with different areas of expertise.

The word "Fán" stands for jade, which is flawlessly white, and "Yuàn" stands for a garden, a place where literature and art gather. Both of them are taken from the names of the two principals, with the hope of using this meaning as a double entendre. It is an expression of the desire to be elegant, relaxed and casual.

In the first phase of the projects, the ancient gardens with unique Chinese charm are used as inspiration elements, and the combination of resin and smooth but with look-and-feel stainless steel materials is used to express the brand image of “FánYuàn”

The first story of "FánYuàn" is being developed around the gardens, and the brand has been created and the content developed with a narrative in line with the Chinese aesthetic. FánYuàn's first production is therefore based on ancient Chinese gardens, incorporating a snapshot of the times in a state of Chinese prosperity, starting with the promotion and overview of the beautiful Chinese aesthetic of ancient gardens. In a small way, it allows more people to resonate with the Chinese classics, the Chinese aesthetic of the times, in the context of international integration.
