With an in­nate un­der­stand­ing of the re­gion’s de­sign land­scape, Emma Stin­son, Shar­jah-born, UK na­tive, is an in­te­rior ar­chi­tect with 15 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence across a mul­ti­tude of in­dus­tries. She founded her Dubai-based de­sign agency, Stu­dio EM, in 2011, at a young age and has paved the way for women-led smaller bou­tique firms in the re­gion and in the process, she played her part in chang­ing the land­scape of agency life in the re­gion for smaller bou­tique firms.

As the cre­ative di­rec­tor of mul­tidis­ci­plinary firm, Stu­dio EM, Stin­son has de­liv­ered over 300 projects in the Mid­dle East, In­dia, East Africa, Europe, and North Amer­ica. The prac­tice won the Bou­tique Firm of the Year cat­e­gory at the 2016 Com­mer­cial In­te­rior De­sign Awards.

In ad­di­tion to in­te­rior de­sign, the firm also of­fers brand­ing ser­vices. Re­cently, Stu­dio EM has worked on such projects as The Fair­mont, Alchemy café, the Waga­mama out­lets, cor­po­rate of­fices for Namshi and Sky­dive Dubai. With sev­eral high pro­file F&B projects in the pipe­line, the firm has plans to ex­pand be­yond the re­gional bound­aries and open an in­ter­na­tional of­fice in Europe in the forth­com­ing year.
