WHEN
Founded by Tan Jiahui in 2012

WHERE
Singapore, Asia

WHY
I believe that in the discerning and crowded age we live in, design should not only serve as a vehicle to aestheticize. Rather, it should help to craft experiences and communicate perception and thought. This has led the studio to work across various design disciplines, and gave us a chance to work with projects of different scales and purposes.
