Philippine Tatler Homes - - EDITOR'S PICK -

Since en­ter­ing the whirl­wind lo­cal mar­ket of in­te­rior de­sign and home con­cepts, Ade­fuin De­sign Stu­dio has built a name for it­self around client sat­is­fac­tion. Their finest creations have been de­rived from close col­lab­o­ra­tion, con­stant ed­u­ca­tion and in­no­va­tion – val­ues which have put them in the global spot­light. The lat­est mile­stone, a recog­ni­tion from the 2017 Asia Pa­cific Prop­erty Awards, af­firms the Stu­dio’s steady com­mit­ment to high stan­dards and the best prac­tices in the in­dus­try.

The Awards com­mit­tee is com­posed of 70 in­de­pen­dent ex­perts across re­lated fields. Chaired by mem­bers of the House of Lords from the UK par­lia­ment, the In­ter­na­tional Prop­erty Awards’ main cri­te­ria fo­cuses on de­sign, qual­ity, ser­vice, in­no­va­tion, orig­i­nal­ity and a com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity. Now on its 26th year, the pres­ti­gious Awards marks the finest in de­sign, bring­ing the best brands front and cen­ter on the stage of the world mar­ket.

Be­ing the sole Filipino awardee in the In­te­rior De­sign: Apart­ment Cat­e­gory of the re­gional (Asi­apa­cific) leg, Ade­fuin De­sign Stu­dio has re­al­ized its in­ten­tion to bring recog­ni­tion to the coun­try. The Stu­dio’s motto for all its projects, de­sign ex­cel­lence in ev­ery in­te­rior, is also af­firmed by this ac­co­lade.

The pres­tige that the Stu­dio gains over the years finds it­self rooted in head de­signer Jigs Ade­fuin’s pas­sion for all things re­lated to de­sign. Both work and leisure in­form Ade­fuin’s con­tin­ued ed­u­ca­tion in the craft – his lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional trav­els bring­ing him across var­i­ous cul­tures and art forms from which he can draw in­spi­ra­tion, abreast of ever emerg­ing in­no­va­tions in the field. A firm be­liever in the po­ten­tial for Filipino de­sign­ers to bring unique touches to the global scene, Ade­fuin hopes that the out­come of the Awards drives more lo­cal de­sign­ers and stu­dios to con­tinue hon­ing their craft.

At five years old, the en­try project to the Awards at­tests to the time­less yet fu­ture-fac­ing na­ture of Ade­fuin De­sign Stu­dio’s aes­thetic. Built on the quiet con­fi­dence of trust­ing in what one can of­fer to the ta­ble, the Stu­dio as­pires for yet more. Cog­nizant of the com­ing ASEAN In­te­gra­tion, Ade­fuin sees a win­dow into de­riv­ing more artis­tic and aes­thetic in­spi­ra­tion from the re­gion, as well as closer col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the lo­cal and re­gional de­sign scenes. And to reach out to budding artists and de­sign­ers, Ade­fuin also plans to be­gin teach­ing at a lo­cal de­sign school, pay­ing for­ward all the Stu­dio’s learn­ings thus far. As art and life in­spire each other, so do pas­sion and ex­cel­lence, and Ade­fuin De­sign Stu­dio is a tes­ta­ment to that.
