Emma Maxwell Design, is a multi award-winning interior design practice based in Singapore. The studios work covers a broad spectrum from small local tapas bars to resort and hotel projects and prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants, retail and residential design.
With an approach that honours artisan skills, the studio works to create innovative concepts which transports patrons into a narrative removed from the pressures of everyday life. The studios design sensibility includes a sculptor’s focus on space, texture and form.
We think a little more deeply than how a space will look. When we commence a project we spend a lot of time thinking about how the guest or resident will feel in the space.
Most recently, the studio received the 2017 Best international project at the IDEA awards in Australia, 2017 Best Interior award from Italy’s A’Design International for 12,000 Francs in Hong Kong. In 2016 Maxwell was honoured with a Silver in the Best Interior category. Also in 2016, their Flume lighting collection won the Best of the Best for Product Design in the Architecture & Design Awards Asia Pacific. The studio was recognised for best restaurant in the 2015 Architecture and Design Asia Pacific awards as well as achieving Travel + Leisure's Top 4 Restaurant Design.
Emma Maxwell is considered one of Asia Pacifics foremost interior designers. Since founding Emma Maxwell Design in 2014, she has developed and refined her ideas concerning modernism as a basis for design. She interprets and designs for spaces in response to each specific client, location and brief. Her design ethos of combining clarity with an unexpected, expressive signature is evident in projects such as Florentina and 12,000 Francs.
She has a reputation for elegant and refined design, and her use of materials and meticulous detailing especially mark out her work. She is well travelled and this is the basis for informing her design directions. Emma’s work has been recognised by many awards and is extensively published.
