DESIGNER PROFILE: ALISTAR LEUNG DIRECTOR/ HEAD OF INTERIORS AT RONALD LU & PARTNERS
Tell us a little about your background in design (education, experience, etc)
I am designing for the last 34 years. I worked on projects in many locations in Asia, USA, Australia and Europe, and in most of the building types.
How would you describe your personal design style?
I always like simple but elegant design. It tells more about the content and characteristics. My designs are always be a synergy of economics and aesthetics.
Where does your design inspiration come from?
Inspiration comes from everywhere in my daily life: seeing things, buildings and activities while walking, talking with people and friends, traveling, reading a magazine or an advertisement, having gourmets, etc. I try to see the possible relationship from putting different things together, things that might not be in the same category, and to find new and fit design solutions.
In what direction do you feel that design is moving towards in a general sense?
Today, design speaks more than its appearance and functions. Its more and more representing our living, our economy, our culture and our intellectual advancement.
