Studio Gin&G

Studio Gin&G , made up of Co-Founders Georgina Foo and Genevieve Ang, is about imbuing beauty and meaning to the spaces we dwell and inhabit, in the fields of industrial design, residential dwellings and commercial interiors. Vested in the art of storytelling through space, the studio is opportunistic of every chance to celebrate the uniqueness of each project, through the creation of experimental artworks and design objects.

An architecturally trained interior designer, Georgina’s approach is inspired by Anthropology – the study of the human condition and cataloging of obsessions and desires. She believes that beauty is found in the balance of boldness and restraint, and that no detail is too minute to celebrate. She seeks to imbue each project with beauty and meaning, by way of storytelling through space.

Genevieve is a maker, artist and architectural designer who believes in understanding construction through the act of making and experimenting. Seeing space not just as an opportunity to design, she seeks to draw experiences from her art and ceramic practice and allows for her different disciplines to guide each other – forming new languages along the way.

This growth is evident in the variety of work that our firm can undertake. You enjoy working with unconventional, recycled materials. Have you been able to convince homeowners to journey with you down this path?  We are mindful of the materials we use and prioritise sustainable and alternative materials more in our commercial projects. Due to their experimental and temporary nature, the clients are more open to using such new materials. We hope that in time, these materials will prove themselves to be as durable and be accepted as a go-to option in residential projects as well. Despite the odds, we are currently working on an exciting apartment, where materials made from…
