5 Minutes with… Studio Juju


March 19th, 2012

Last year, Singapore-based Studio Juju made the headlines in Milan when they captured both the Design Report Award for best newcomer contribution at SaloneSatellite, and the W Hotel Designers of the Future Award (see our 2011 interview with Studio Juju here).

With Milan design week hitting everyone’s radar yet again in just a few weeks, we thought it fitting to catch up with the youthful duo for a quick chat!

“A Tent” at W Hotel Hong Kong – previously conceived for the Design Miami/Basel “Designers of the Future” award.

Describe your design philosophy.

Designing a good experience with any project. We believe that the encounter with any physical design has to be both sensorial and emotional.

Studio Juju

Wobble and Mushroom Collection

Projects you are busy with at the moment.

We are working with Living Divani on a set of tables, and a new collection of luxury table accessories for a new brand.

Also, a commissioned installation for SaloneSatellite as one of 15 designers to celebrate the event’s 15th year anniversary. All to be presented during the Milan fair this year.

Concurrently, other commissioned works in Singapore.

Drum Series

Top 3 influences.

The food we eat. The things we see. The people that we meet.

Favourite local landmark/building.

Let’s say many, BUT the new library and new shopping malls.

Favourite international landmark/building.

We once slept at the Rolex Learning Center designed by Sanaa in Lausanne. We woke up from the bean bags and had lunch at the cafeteria.

Anyone who has a strong passion for what he or she does.

Favourite decade of design.

This decade.

AT Lamps

Number 1 concern for the design industry in the coming decade.

Waste. When a design doesn’t connect long enough with the users, it gets dumped. It’s not just about using waste materials to build another thing.

One item in the workplace you can’t live without.
