CV Lien Tran

The interior designer Lien Tran was born in 1975 in Vietnam to Chinese parents and has been living in Germany since the age of three. Growing up in Europe, she was strongly influenced by Western culture, but still finds inspiration in her Asian heritage. She seeks to combine the features of these two distinct worlds to transmit her unique perspective through her work. After her interior design studies in Coburg and Hildesheim, she worked for Elsa Prochazka in Vienna and Yasmine Mahmoudieh in Berlin. In 2006, she founded her own studio for architecture and design and now works with her team on national and international projects.
