Dim. is a shared dining experience to reintroduce dim sum in an elevated way with a modern twist to create new social connections.

It is a thematic boutique restaurant with the goal of bringing the essence of authentic dim sum experience from Cantonese culture, reviving the freshness of rain in sunny Los Angeles and being able to rebuild social connection yet keeping a distance, through projected nature, so foodies in local Los Angeles could enjoy the refreshment and an immersive dim sum experience.

Hi, I am Helene(Weixin) Huang, a human-centered spatial storyteller. I am currently graduating from ArtCenter College of Design with a Bachelor of Science degree and Designmatters for Social Innovation Minor.I am currently open for job:)

Growing up in a multicultural environment, for me, if design is a language, empathy would be the grammar. Empathy is what makes design visual language that breaks physical and mental boundaries and creates meaningful connections for people with different cultures, generations, and points of view.
