AFSO is an internationally acclaimed design studio in Hong Kong, founded by the architect André Fu.
With an extensive portfolio of projects throughout Asia and Europe, the studio has revolutionized the concept of modern luxury with a series of projects that reflect Fu’s signature artistic perspective and timeless sensibility.
“The spirit of my design philosophy is about provoking new ways of thinking about what luxury means,” says Fu.
Fu’s projects span a diverse collection of interiors including the Upper House Hotel; Singapore’s Fullerton Bay Hotel; a pop-up apartment for Louis Vuitton and a super-suite at the Berkeley Hotel. Most recently, he designed the interiors of the library and salon dining room at Villa La Coste; and the Perrotin art gallery in Tokyo.
Fu credits his idiosyncratic design style – a quietly thoughtful, carefully considered yet analytical approach marked by a highly refined aesthetic – to his cultural upbringing in both Europe and Asia.
In 2014, Assouline published ‘André Fu’, presenting 15 of the designer’s inspirational spaces.
Current commissions include the Andaz hotel group’s first hotel in Singapore; the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok; a Cantonese restaurant at The Murray Hong Kong, and new suites for The Berkeley Hotel, London.
In 2015, he successfully launched André Fu Living (AFL) with a collection of artisanal products that reflect his signature modern style.
André Fu holds a Masters in Architecture from Cambridge University. In 2016, he was named Designer of the Year for Maison & Objet Asia, and was honoured in Wallpaper*s list of ‘Top 20 Interior Designers’.
