The YOO Studio is a unique design house with experience of cutting edge design in over 24 countries. Serving the YOO tribe internationally, the studio has completed individual residences and hotels as well as bringing to fruition the visions of Creative Directors Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, Jade Jagger and Kelly Hoppen. This gives YOO Studio a unique design DNA that could only come from working with the world’s best.
Headed by Mark Davison, the studio’s experience is enhanced by its diversity of over 20 architects, interior and product designers with big imaginations, providing a choice of looks and styles to suit the lifestyles of today’s modern dwellers.
They only source the best quality fittings and furniture from around the world to create interiors that are imaginative, rare and individual – just like you. The YOO Studio’s global design expertise has developed a unique understanding of designing in different cultures, to create projects that respect and enliven the cultures in which they live.
The YOO Design Studio was originally established to service the ideas of its star designers (first Philippe Starck, then Marcel Wanders, Jade Jagger, Kelly Hoppen and Anouska Hempel) providing what its head of design Mark Davison calls “the glue between the designers and the developers.”
Over time, however, this extremely talented and thoughtful group of product and interior designers and architects has inevitably developed its own unique intelligence and identity. Now the YOO Design Studio happily functions as a creative force in its own right, taking on residential and hotel interiors, restaurants and larger architectural projects.
The team prides itself on taking on board the local context: “we’re not here to export European design around the world. We do a lot of research on the local context and weave that back in to the project,” says Mark Davison. “We know how to deliver unique spaces, and at different cost points.”
