MAISON&OBJET ASIA – Designer of the Year

 

 

André Fu 01_low.jpgAndré Fu graduated from the University of Cambridge and founded AFSO in the same year to create distinct projects. His design studio has since created a series of internationally recognised works in sensuous and unique projects.

With its head studio in Hong Kong, the firm lists clients such as Maybourne Hotel Group, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Shangri-La Hotels, Swire Hotels, Capella Hotels, Park Hyatt Hotels, restauranteur Alan Yau, Louis Vuitton, lifestyle retailer Lane Crawford, and gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin.

AFSO’s distinctive approach to interior architecture combines the rigorous pursuit of new Asian sensitivities, with clarity in space planning and keen attention to the details of everyday life. It has applied its vision of design to the fundamental qualities of space, proportion, light, and lush materials. Its emotional spaces are created to inspire and indulge.

No Limits, No Boundaries 无极限,没界限

David Liao (Founder and creative genius of DLX Creative)

He is a man of many talents – some say he’s a photographer, an architect, a property agent who’s also good at many other sporting activities.

In reality, David Liao is a down to earth and successful entrepreneur who is definitely all of the above, but keeps focused with the services that his company provides in the real estate community.

After owning and running DLX Creative for seven years, the business focuses on developers to create marketing material for the latter’s architectural projects – making their projects come to live.

“We are a marketing service agency that provides services purely for property developers. The services are to build long-term partnerships, working closely with our stakeholder groups, and meeting their requirements to ensure an open and collaborative dialogue throughout the production process. We carry out thorough and extensive research for every project, developing considered creative solutions that work,” explains Liao.

DLX has grown as a business housing seven specialised staff and is relatively a young agency which projects a vibrant and forward thinking team. “Our goal is to deliver highly effective solutions in a cost-effective manner. We tailor solutions for developments of all sizes.”

“Three years ago, another person joined me as a partner who has 15 over years in print. The company has grown since then and we do around 20-30 projects in Melbourne and some in China. DLX are my initials – David Liao and X stands for Exponential potentials – no boundaries, no limits in our services.”

With a rather impressive list of projects under its belt, Liao hopes to explore more opportunities in the future.

“I’d like my team to have more ownership of the company and project. I like to focus on different things and tap into new industries.  There’s another project in the pipeline to do with tourism from China to Melbourne where there is huge potential because of the amount of Chinese tourists who come here every year.”

And so, there is definitely exponential potential for Liao where he will take on these new projects with no boundaries and no limits.

他多才多艺-有人说他是摄影师、建筑师、产业代理,甚至擅长体育活动。在现实中, David Liao 是脚踏实地的成功企业家,这是公认的事实,并且一直集中在为房地产社群提供专业服务。

运营 DLX Creative 的7年来,他们的业务专注于创建房产建筑项目的市场营销方案,让客户的房产项目更具活力与神采。

“我们纯粹为房地产开发商提供服务,建立长期合作关系,与他们密切合作,满足一切需求,并且确保良好开放的协作贯穿整个制作过程。我们对每一个项目皆有广泛的研究和探讨,给予具备创造性的方案。”

DLX已成长为拥有7名专业人员的年轻效率机构,充满能量和拥有超前思维的团队。“我们的目标是提供符合成本效益的高效方案,为各种规模的项目定制完美方案。”

3年前,随着一名具有15年印刷经验的合作伙伴加入,那时起,DLX 在墨尔本有20 – 30个服务订单,还有一些是在中国。DLX 是由 David Liao 名字首字母组成,而X代表潜力指数 – 服务无极限,没界限。

为了发掘令人印象深刻的项目列表,他希望在未来拓展探索更多机会。

“我想让我的团队掌控更多公司和项目的主动权。我喜欢关注不同的东西和进入全行业领域,另外,针对每年不断攀升到访墨尔本的中国旅客数量,这个巨大潜力的旅游项目管道我们也在进行着。”

因此,在具备绝对潜力指数下,这些新规划理所当然无极限,没界限。
