After founding his international interior design and lifestyle firm, Cameron Woo Design, in 2000, Cameron Woo has become one of the best interior designers in the world. He is one of the leaders of Asian interior design. Headquartered in Singapore, the firm has deservedly won an array of awards, such as World’s Best Interior Design, Asia Pacific’s Best Interior Design, and Singapore’s Best Interior Design. Cameron Woo Design specialises in the creation of world class spaces for private clients from all over the globe and a range of well-known property developers. Constantly evolving and adapting to the rapidly modernising world of interior design, Cameron Woo is without doubt one of the world’s best interior designers.
The story of Cameron Woo finding his passion for interior design is nothing short of fascinating. Born to a Chinese Australian family in Papua New Guinea, Woo became inspired by where he grew up – the tropical plantation by the beach that he and his parents lived in.
Funnily enough, Cameron Woo doesn’t consider himself nor his firm to have a style. Instead, he prefers to create bespoke spaces that are tailored to the desires of the clients. Woo has spoke in depth about this, saying “I don’t think we actually have a style. Others might think that we do, but I personally don’t. Our designs are dictated by what our clients really want”. The interior for me should showcase the personality of the client rather than the interior designer”. This not only shows Cameron Woo Design’s adaptability, but also a serious attention to detail in giving clients exactly what they are after.
Despite Woo’s humility when it comes to interior design being about the client, rather than himself, his designs show the confidence, and the healthy type of arrogance that is necessary to be successful in the world of interior design, which is always competitive. Cameron Woo Design’s attitude to putting the clients first has allowed the firm to easily dodge the pitfalls that come with changing times. When asked about their clients, they stated that in the past their clients were typically in their 50s, who had a tendency to go for more traditional, conservative interior designs. However, these days they are serving a younger generation, which explores new trends and ideas, often featuring digital technology.
Top projects | Cameron Woo
Woo has collaborated with some of the world’s best known brands. Due to the fact that Cameron Woo Design is a firm that specialises in giving the client exactly what they want, their designs are fantastically modern, in order to keep up with the times.
L’Appartement Louis Vuitton, Singapore
Louis Vuitton, one of the most famous luxury brands in the world commissioned Cameron Woo to design this apartment. Featuring a range of carefully created Louis Vuitton items, we feel that Cameron Woo and the Cameron Woo Design team did a great job in designing this space in the heart of Singapore.
However, huge names like Louis Vuitton aren’t the only type of client that Woo’s creative designs cater to. Woo’s portfolio of impressive interiors includes many created for private clients.
Silkari Penthouse, Australia
This incredibly stylish penthouse further exemplifies Woo’s eye for design. Contemporary, modern, and as described on Cameron Woo Designs’s website as possessing a ‘strong Sydney vibe’, we can see Woo’s ability to adapt to whatever he is tasked with.
Scotts High Park Showflat, Singapore
Woo here shows his eye for stunning interior design, with a beautiful modern take on the traditional dining room. Despite claiming to not have a particular style, this kind of quality dining room can be seen throughout many of Woo’s projects.
With elements of both modern and traditional design, this was designed for the affluent South Asian home buyer. This house perhaps best displays the range of Cameron Woo and Cameron Woo Design’s interior design talents.
Considering Cameron Woo and Cameron Woo Design’s ability to consistently adapt with the times, and differing demands of all clients, we can confidently say that exciting times are ahead, for one of the world’s top interior designers.
