André Fu is one of Asia’s leading interior designers. When the world- renowned Upper House hotel in Hong Kong opened ten years ago, he became an overnight sensation. As one of Asia’s most widely sought-after creatives, the Hong Kong-based designer has gone on to plan forward- thinking spaces for other major hotels, restaurants, and leading brands, including Louis Vuitton, The Berkeley (London), and Waldorf hotels. A trained architect, his projects span scales and typologies, continuously bridging the gap between cultures, and drawing as naturally on European principles of beauty as from Oriental qualities, traditions, and modernity.
This collection of his works to date features eighteen recent projects around the world and provides fresh insights into Fu’s creative process, including his hand-drawn sketches and mood boards, as well as an introductory essay that explores Fu’s key influences and the importance of his unique and highly re ned aesthetic. Fully illustrated, this rich overview showcases the award-winning vision of interior design’s rising star, not only in Asia but across the world.
