Fu-Tung Cheng has forged a dynamic artistic career utilizing innovative and alluring materials to produce timeless designs; his innate ability to balance luxury and conscience informs each endeavor he pursues. Cheng heads three companies in Berkeley, California: Cheng Design, Cheng Products and Cheng Concrete. An innovator in the use of concrete in architecture and industrial design, Cheng has pushed new boundaries with the development of his proprietary Geocrete. Cheng is the author of three books, which combined have sold half a million copies; his latest, Concrete Countertops Made Simple, has been hailed by the media for bringing high design to a mass audience. Cheng is also a celebrated featured designer on national broadcast and print media such as CNN and The New York Times.
Now Cheng’s dynamic range of skills has resulted in a creative partnership with Zephyr. The Cheng Collection by Zephyr is the embodiment of the designer’s vast range of talents, accentuating kitchens with their graceful and timeless visual appeal. Additionally, Cheng has lent his name and talent to Zephyr’s groundbreaking Inspire My Kitchen Design Contest, which awards homeowners and professional designers with prizes for incorporating a Zephyr range hood into their kitchen. As a second year veteran on the contest’s expert judging panel, Cheng is looking forward to analyzing the dynamic range of kitchen entries the contest will most certainly receive. In particular, Cheng looks for kitchen designs that make exquisite use of colors and textures, as well as the overall application of the hood within the kitchen’s design. A gifted talent with an eye for that which is artful and uplifting, it’s easy to see why Zephyr is so proud to have Cheng as a top designer in their stable of design talent.
