How we work


  • Research . Question . Redefine .

  • Research

     

    We approach every project with extensive research that firmly grounds our thinking on to the context of the brief.

  • Question

     

    Next, we disengage ourselves from the norm and the obvious in order to rethink and explore all possibilities.

  • Redefine

     
    This is then put together as a guiding narrative that becomes the fulcrum of every design decision, thus redefining what has already been done.

    The final result is a project that is truly detailed, authentic and incredibly bespoke.

Chris Widjaja
Creative Director & Founder

Since his early childhood, Chris has always been quite the experimenter – from mini plasticine adventures to fashioning guns out of ball-point pens. By the age of 12, he, like so many other kids his age, was spending two-thirds of his time playing computer games. An initial fascination with The Sims, quite quickly, became a dangerous addiction – where he would spend hours building homes after homes and never actually playing the characters in the game. Little did he know, this addiction would later manifest itself in him obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Interior Architecture (with 2nd Class Honours, unbelievably).

Until today, whenever Chris finds himself bored, he would doodle aimlessly on tables, papers, notebooks; basically, anything - though he admits his best and most complete doodles can be found tucked into the pages of his old Chinese textbooks from high school. While language was never his forte, artistic skill and creative finesse have always been his reliable driving force.

Whenever, he's not bored, he continues to polish his skills in the fields of design and the arts - from photography to black and white drawings, furniture design to oil paintings, graphic design to interior design. He is always hungry for the challenge to create something out-of-the-ordinary, functional and at the same time, aesthetically beautiful.
