About / AFSO
AFSO is an internationally acclaimed design studio in Hong Kong, founded by interior 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.
For the past decade and a half, Fu’s vision has been defined by a seamless alignment of cultural and design sensibilities, modern luxury, art and craftsmanship. A trained architect, his projects span scales and typologies, continuously bridging the gap between cultures, and drawing as naturally on European principles of beauty as from Oriental qualities, traditions and modernity.
His seemingly effortless creations range from a unique furniture collaboration with Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection to contemporary art galleries in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai, and major hotels and restaurants around the world for leading brands including Villa La Coste in Provence, Hong Kong’s Upper House Hotel and the St Regis, The Berkeley London, as well as Waldorf Astoria Bangkok.
In 2014, Assouline published ‘André Fu’, presenting 15 of the designer’s inspirational spaces.
Current commissions include the Mitsui Hotel in Kyoto and a key commission for London’s iconic Claridge’s hotel. 2020 sees the unveiling of a new hardback monograph titled ‘Crossing Cultures with Design’, a collaboration with UK based publisher Thames and Hudson and writer Catherine Shaw exploring Fu’s defining influences and the development of his unique and highly refined aesthetic and its relevance on the international design stage.
In 2019, he successfully launched André Fu Living (AFL) with a holistic collection of lifestyle 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’. In 2019, Elle Décor China has named André as “Interior Designer of The Year”.
