Moving beyond style, design concept, or furnitures; the true luxury to space is about the emotion and experience, something that can be felt, react to, and even have an influence to the person within. Such experience and interactions between human, design, and all the tidbits are powerful and impactful; however a multifaceted task to realise. From emotion, human familiar and design practice, Ed Ng, Principal & Co-Founder, AB Concept, will share anecdotes from the front lines with concrete examples that are relevant even beyond the design of spaces.
