founder, afso / hong kong, china

Born in Hong Kong, Andre Fu left for education in the United Kingdom at the age of 14. He graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2000 and founded AFSO in the same year to create distinct projects. In 2004, he returned to Hong Kong. His boutique studio has since created a series of internationally-recognized works in sensuous and unique projects.

Fu's approach to interior architecture combines the rigorous pursuit of new Asian sensitivities, with clarity in space planning and keen attention to details of everyday life. His studio AFSO has applied its vision of design to the fundamental qualities of space, proportion, light and lush materials. Fu's emotional spaces are created to inspire and indulge. Notable commissions include the Upper House Hotel in Hong Kong, the Fullerton Bay Hotel at Singapore's waterfront, and the Super Suite at the Berkeley Hotel in London.

Subsequent projects have spanned a wide range of scales and typologies, from Lane Crawford Store's Shoe Library—one of the biggest shoe boutiques in the world, a bespoke handtufted rug collection with the legendary Tai Ping Carpets as well as the private residence of international actress Miss Michelle Yeoh. Fu has also collaborated with gallerists Emmanuel Perrotin and Ben Brown on their artspaces in Hong Kong.

He was acclaimed as the face of Asian design, proclaimed "Hong Kong's Design Stalwart" by Wallpaper*, "Design Master" by Monocle, "Design Wunderkind" by Vogue UK, "Asian Design Sensation" by Conde Nast Traveler US and "Creative Wunderkind" by Forbes.
