Award-winning architects Ed Ng and Terence Ngan, co-founders of AB Concept, have designed Nephele, a capsule collection for luxury carpet brand Tai Ping. The four designs were inspired by views from a plane, including the circular Polis, featuring a grid-like surface of an illuminated city at night, and Boreas, several shades of white in a reflection of Antarctica’s shifting icebergs.

Lebanese-American designer Nabil Issa’s debut furniture collection, Objects of Desire, is an intriguing study based on a balanced aesthetic of boldness and minimalism.
Composed of noble materials, pure lines and original forms, these refined pieces will brighten up any dull corner.

Icha Chateau in Shanghai


Realised by Shanghai-based design firm Spacemen, Icha Chateau in Shanghai is a sophisticated modern-luxe teahouse highlighted by a 35,000-metre, three-toned gold chain that depicts the rolling hills of tea plantations. Completing the scene is the inclusion of terrazzo marble flooring and sculptural brass lighting, both of which complement the organic shape of the interiors.
