It has been brought to our attention that the “Oasis” design submitted by Li Pengliang and Sun Hongyang, which was recognized as a finalist of the Michelin Challenge Design in our release of November 9th, 2017 was in fact not the work of the named entrants, but rather included significant design elements from another designer. As a result, we have immediately removed this design from our list of finalists and our competition galleries.
We apologize for any confusion and express our gratitude to those who have brought this to our attention.
