editor’s note

Organic, sustainably sourced, eco-friendly—these words don’t just describe dishes on a menu, but many other products in the market today. From fashion to furniture, the green revolution touches every aspect of our lives. In a time when the effects of climate change are becoming profoundly perceptible, it’s even more crucial for us to consider the environmental impact of our actions. Greening our daily life is like trying to eat healthy—plenty of options abound, but temptation beckons and we often fall back on tired old habits. That’s why we’ve compiled a 12-page special report featuring the products, places and projects that can inspire you to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle. Elsewhere in the magazine, we speak to Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell of WOHA, Maison&Objet Asia’s Designer of the Year 2017, about…

Y-JEAN MUN-DELSALLE Y-Jean picks out the High Line, a park elevated above the streets of New York as a go-to spot: “As it is still being built, I make it a point to revisit each time I’m in the city, to witness its expansion and transformation.” For this issue, she profiles the multi-faceted career of French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, and the waterfront abode of architect Chad Oppenheim. MICHELE KOH MOROLLO Closer to home, the MacRitchie Reservoir Park is still Michele’s preferred park. She enthuses: “When I’m walking on one of the park’s forest trails, I feel like I’ve left the city and have been transported to another place.” In the following pages, Michele speaks to interior specialists on their take on eco-conscious furnishings, while curating her top finds for sustainable lighting and outdoor…

provençal bliss

What drew you to this commission? Provence has always been an aspirational destination for me and I’ve been mesmerised by its poetic sensibility. In 2013, I was invited by the owner of Château La Coste to visit his private vineyard and was overwhelmed by the way he celebrates art, architecture and wine. The thought of exploring a means to create destinations within his new property then came about. How did you combine architecture and gastronomy at Villa La Coste? My inspirations for the project stemmed from my instinctive perception of what felt appropriate in the context. My goal was to embrace the Provençal spirit in a contemporary and relevant way—the juxtaposition of textures and the purist quality of various intimate spaces was borne as a result of this exploration. Apart from the location, what…

Chris Lee, founder of creative agency Asylum, is known for his inventive methods of adding a local touch to restaurant and store interiors, and branding. Most recently, his team was tasked to design an entire boutique hotel, The Warehouse Hotel (below). Here, the creative director reveals his favourite places in Singapore and beyond.

What’s the most surprising thing about the design scene today? I think different disciplines in design are more integrated now than they were when I started. Art, fashion, design and architecture all seem to overlap a little more than they did 10 years ago, which I feel is a positive shift. Manufacturing in the UK is one of the major tenets of your brand. Which piece was the hardest to produce? As I work with so many different materials, every product has its challenges. I would say that the simplest pieces in my collection tend to be the most difficult to produce because we are making an effort to hide the seams and construction. This is very true of my Crescent light; there are some very complicated but hidden mechanics that make the…
