NIO are a Chinese electric car company.
Their brand is “Wei Lai” which means “blue sky coming.”
They commissioned AIM Architecture, Shanghai, to design a new space called the NIO House in Beijing. This high end contemporary design is more penthouse than dealership – a new trend led by the likes of Tesla and Lexus before them.
Founded by Wendy Saunders and Vincent de Graaf in 2005, aim is a Shanghai based design studio who design and manage a substantial number of projects throughout China and South East Asia. Our work is inspired by its context and the fine line between vision and practicality. The journey from concept to final product is made with attention, devotion to quality and an ability to see small details within the bigger picture.
