JOYCE WANG

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Ideal Homes & Art -

Back­ground: Aged just 34, the Lon­don- and Hong Kong­based de­signer stud­ied ar­chi­tec­ture and ma­te­ri­als science at the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, and re­ceived a mas­ter’s de­gree from the Royal Col­lege of Art in Lon­don. Her epony­mous stu­dio spe­cialises in lux­ury hos­pi­tal­ity and res­i­den­tial in­te­rior de­sign, and she is de­vel­op­ing a cus­tom fur­ni­ture and light­ing col­lec­tion Style: With a pas­sion for ma­te­ri­als, her ar­chi­tec­tural ap­proach to de­sign, cine­matic ref­er­ences and in­ter­dis­ci­plinary inspirations in­ject a sense of drama and nar­ra­tive into her projects. In­tu­itive and emo­tive, Wang favours a bal­ance be­tween new and old, en­gi­neered and crafted, while al­ways adding an el­e­ment of sur­prise. Projects: Res­i­dences, restau­rants and ho­tels in Shang­hai, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Van­cou­ver, Dubai, Los An­ge­les and Lon­don; Equinox fit­ness club in St James’s in Lon­don; and the Ocu­lus chan­de­lier for Swarovski. www.joyce­wang.com
