THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
AB Concept was founded in 1999 by Ed Ng and Terence Ngan and is now an international interior design and architecture studio focused on creating moments that matter in luxury environments. Today we are going to talk about their new office in the Victoria Dockside in Hong Kong! Venture in this tour with us!
The international interior and architecture studio AB Concept designed the interiors for their new office as they moved from Causeway Bay to Victoria Dockside, in Hong Kong. The studio chose to go against the typical white walls of office spaces, creating an inspirational, characterful and colourful office space for their staff and clients to enjoy.
When walking into the studio, there is a familiarity, a homeliness and a cheeky fun side that is often missing from office and business destinations. The new studio contains many objects and furniture items from the founders own growing personal collection, sourced from numerous locations from all around the world, clearing an eclectic design that sparks conversation and fuels creativity.
Visitors of this office will find the recurring them of several monkeys spread around the office, within the artworks and even becoming one with the furniture – this is a reference to Ed Ng Chinese sign.
There is no traditional reception: to greet the guests is a sideboard filled with magazines, teak lounge chairs by Peter Hvidt and Orla Molgaard-Nielsen, a circular chair by Roberto Lazzeroni, and a cheeky concrete monkey side table by Jaime Hayon to wait on guests and staff for informal meetings. Enclosing the interior is a large piece of monkey artwork by Yim Tae-kyu, introducing a colour palette of green and orange hues.
The conference room has a beautiful eight-seat table boasting breathtaking views of the dockside through a floor-to-ceiling window. Two chandeliers hang above the table, whilst a colourful painting by a Filipino artist is given a new home on the sidewall.
The only space with a door is a small sitting room used for interviews and meetings, where framed photos taken by the founders and project sketches hang around a vintage, chipped porcelain mirror. The kitchen offers an extended eating area, complete with coffee machine, microwave, fridge and wine cellar, alongside decorative accessories and final touches that create a home away from home.
AB Concept also designed custom hexagonal desks for the staff to encourage collaboration and openness. The screens are arranged in triangle forms with potted plants at the centre. The materials room resembles a high-end walk-in wardrobe, with surfaces finishes and textiles hanging like clothes. Beautiful brass-finished drawers, illuminated from the inside, keep safe the stone samples.
