News - Steve Leung joins as Creative Director
YOO is proud to announce its collaboration with top Asian design star, Steve Leung, who joins as Creative Director of Steve Leung & YOO. Together, YOO and Steve Leung will put into practice their shared vision of how considered design sustains value, with a number of international projects. This new partnership is an inspired meeting of great minds, which will create desirable homes and hotels that result in increased value for developers and residents alike.
Steve Leung, born in Hong Kong in 1957, is globally lauded as one of the world’s leading architects and designers. As a dedicated contemporary style advocate, Steve’s work is based on a strong and unique character of minimalism, with a skilful infusion of Asian culture and arts, resulting in rich and textured environments. His work includes architecture, interior design, and product design. As Creative Director of Steve Leung & YOO, Steve’s extensive experience and natural synergy with the sophisticated Asian styles and tastes will undoubtedly resonate throughout his work with the leading property company.
Steve said: “It’s my honour to join the YOO family. Design is a universal language and can break through all boundaries. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce Asian style and design to the world, as well as bringing world-class design to Asia and China.
John commented, “We couldn’t be happier to announce Steve Leung as our newest Creative Director to join the ranks: this is another great collaboration for YOO. Sophisticated Asian style is incredibly popular not only in the actual region, but also beyond, as increasingly we see how design pollinates globally. We believe that good design enhances life, and we are committed to this through all our projects: YOO’s collaboration with Steve Leung brings a powerful new offering to the YOO brand.”
The first Steve Leung & YOO project is the YOO Residence in Hong Kong. This development of apartments, in partnership with ITC Properties Group Limited and Couture Homes Limited, has proven itself a game-changer in Hong Kong, as the first ever international branded residence on the island. The collaboration between the two design brands delivers chic, stylish and refined interiors and heralds a vibrant new direction in interiors in Hong Kong, bringing residents a fresh approach to living.
