INTO OUR BRAVE NEW WORLD

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - EDITOR’S NOTE - Em­me­lyn Cindy Mah EDI­TOR

The world is chang­ing. This isn’t by any means a new rev­e­la­tion – in­deed, the world is al­ways chang­ing, and in the end­less pur­suit of mod­erni­sa­tion and progress, In­dus­try has seen to it that we grow ever aware. In the im­per­ma­nence of our world, we come to re­alise that there is more to pro­tect than meets the eye. As it stands, Green Ini­tia­tives, Sus­tain­able Build­ing and Liv­ing, and Preser­va­tion have become the buzz words of the day.

And what a time it is to re­mem­ber that we only have one Earth to pro­tect!

Do­ing their part for the bet­ter­ment of our build­ing, de­sign­ing, and ar­chi­tec­ture in­dus­try, many of these de­sign­ers need no in­tro­duc­tion. Their work has gar­nered plenty of at­ten­tion, and I can hardly think of any col­lec­tive of peo­ple more wor­thy to cham­pion the cause of sus­tain­abil­ity and ac­count­abil­ity. These are the folk who be­lieve that in or­der to live in our world, we must live in our world. Build­ing around na­ture, rather than cut­ting down ev­ery­thing in the path of aes­thet­ics and de­sign; learn­ing to bring in the green, and learn­ing how to cul­ti­vate a life that is at once zen, mea­sured, and good to Mother Na­ture.

So as it turns out, De­sign­ers don’t merely de­sign our spa­ces these days; they de­sign the lives in which we must all live better, and be better. We present to you nine such names and firms, and hope you take in­spi­ra­tion from them all for all your com­ing ren­o­va­tions and re­dec­o­ra­tion en­deav­ours!

Have a happy De­cem­ber!
