Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

In appreciation of the contributions and efforts of the Chew Interior Design Family, we held our staff day in Universal Studios @ Resorts World Sentosa. Travelling to the southern islands of Singapore, we felt an impending sense of adventure as the iconic Universal globe drew closer within our sights.

Gathered together as one big family under the morning sunshine of Singapore’s all-year-round summer, we put on our postcard smiles against the backdrop of the Universal globe and snapped one shot for the picture books.

Contemporary Modern

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

As toilets go, they are one of the most important places in the household. Everyone needs one, everyone has one in their house – and who is to say that this critical place in the home must be spared the brush. As design goes, one of the first places anyone should be looking at is the toilet, or as more aptly put in other cultures – ‘the throne room.’ We wanted to keep this toilet looking fantastic and welcoming, yet modern and functional – a challenge nonetheless for us.

Eco Texture Zen

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Zen is the feeling of inner peace and calm, a spiritual state where the heart, the mind and the soul connect upon a level beyond our states. Eco, mind you not just a word thrown in here, was used to connect to an idea of nature and responsibility. In the end, we had a natural feel to our toilet, one that created an inner peace and calm to whoever walked into its space and basked within its strangely soothing lights.

Moving Between Worlds!

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

The city was just full of surprises. It was amazing! So many different exhibitions on urban civilizations came together in what can be called panache of sight, sound and breath taking creativity! Our designers were inspired by some of the unconventional designs in the Expo.

As we navigated the labyrinth of exhibits at the Shanghai Expo, things just got better and better as there was always something new around every corner! We were definitely inspired by the design concepts from each and every country, and would definitely make use of them in our designs here in Singapore!
