In its 24th year, the Andrew Martin International Interior Designer of the Year Award is a celebration of the most talented designers from every corner of the globe. Dubbed the ‘Oscars of the Interior Design World’ it was the first international design award and previous winners are a who’s who of the design firmament, from Kelly Hoppen, the first recipient in 1996, to Axel Vervoordt, Nicky Haslam or Rose Uniacke.
Joining the illustrious list of winners, Andre Martin chose this year the Shanghai-based designer Ben Wu. It’s a landmark win because Wu is the first-ever designer from mainland China to receive this prestigious accolade. You can visit Ben Wu’s website in HERE.
Ben Wu’s journey into the design is one that has taken him from the study of traditional Chinese ink paintings, to the dizzy heights of high-end hotels in New York City. In 1998 Wu established WS DESIGN, a studio that now encompasses multiple design and lifestyle brands. His work transcends borders thanks to the unique design philosophy of ‘Modern Oriental’, which strives to combine the best of both Eastern and Western design.
He co-founded the prestigious W. DESIGN Co., Ltd, a well-known interior design corporation that belongs to W + S DECO GROUP. W. DESIGN is not only famous for interior design in high-end real estate and hotel but also well received in the overall design of interior furnishings with its high-end and unique customer target, which creates a wonderful effect and brings enormous profit to enterprises and owners.
