Co-Founder & Principal @ AB Concept - HONG KONG
Founded in 1999 by Ed Ng and Terence Ngan, AB Concept is an international interior design and architecture studio focused on creating moments that matter in luxury environments across the hospitality, commercial and residential sectors. The studio’s design approach is unique, drawing similarities to how a chef develops a recipe; exploring local culture and experimenting with tastes and skills. Resulting projects are a culmination of these vital ingredients offering bespoke experiences through narrative-driven interiors with meticulous attention to detail. AB Concept works on a global scale with offices in Hong Kong, Taipei and Milan, and roster of clients in 16 countries and over 30 cities – from London, Milan, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and the Algarve to New York, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur. The studio regularly collaborates with internationally-renowned brands including Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz Carlton, Rosewood and W Hotels. Recent projects include the acclaimed Paper Moon Giardino restaurant in Milan and Lalique’s flagship store in Shanghai, the brand’s first showroom commissioned to an outside firm. In addition to creating full design schemes, AB Concept continues to develop a portfolio of bespoke design products and to date, has worked with Tai Ping on a capsule collection of couture rugs and crystal lighting for Czech manufacturer Lasvit. www.abconcept.net
