Friday Five With Joyce Wang of Joyce Wang Studio

Joyce Wang from Joyce Wang Studio specializes in creating unique high-end experiences in luxurious hospitality and interior design. The connecting thread that you will find everywhere are tailor-made fittings, details and antique pieces in limited editions as well as handicrafts from all over the world. Joyce’s appreciation for art dates back to her time at the Royal College of Art in London. Nowadays textiles, product design, filmmaking, jewelry and the fashion industry inspire their work. Small details can be observed in the custom pieces she designs for her spaces.

Based in London and Hong Kong, Joyce Wang Studio has notable projects such as the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (Los Angeles), the Landmark Mandarin Oriental (Hong Kong), the Mott 32 (Hong Kong, Vegas, and Vancouver), and the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park included in their portfolio.

“We have been fortunate to work on projects that have historic value, be it the brand or the location,” said Joyce. “This has enabled us to create environments that reinvent traditions and create narratives that encourage audiences to question and interpret the environment.”

Today Joyce comes to us for Friday Five!

It’s a curation of three objects a week. Whenever I see a sample of a design language that speaks to a particular aesthetic, I look forward to his contributions every week!

2. My design team in London and Hong Kong
My ideas would mean nothing without them. I love to wake up to the fresh ideas from London and to empathize with a lot of what has been achieved with the studio in Hong Kong.

3. My daily 5k run
It’s the only time of day devoted to myself. I love getting out of the zone, enjoying the fresh air and just enjoying the certainty of the start and end of the same 5K run.

His respect for ingredients always reminds me how respect for the simplest materials in the design world can lead to the best results. I like the way he constantly cleans his countertop with enthusiasm and precision. It makes me feel better about my OCD tendencies.

A good friend recommended this brand for my wardrobe and I haven’t returned since! Ideal for travel as you can crush them into a ball and put them straight on without wrinkles. The menswear collection has incredible cuts and colors that I also like to wear.
