PDP: Best In Class Interior Designer


Topic 1: Narrative Spaces

Presented by Chris Lee, Founder & Creative Director, Asylum

Since its inception in 1999, Asylum has been defined as the `unconventional maverick’ of the creative world with their multi-disciplinary approach that integrates branding and spatial design.

Their range of cross-disciplinary projects include environmental & interior design, interactive design, product development, branding and graphic design.

Join Chris Lee, Founder and Creative Director of Asylum, as he inspires you in conceptualising interior spaces, injecting his design concepts with a tinge of wit and humour.

It is this dose of humour and delight that has seen Asylum become one of the most respected creative companies in Asia, as the agency constantly creates surprises and adds an element of the unexpected and originality to each project. Chris Lee will also share how Asylum uses tools like mind-mapping & research to weave storytelling into compelling interiors.
