Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Nu Infinity ("NI") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
NI : Graduated as an Architect, but turned to Interior Design as I feel it gives better balance between creativity and running a business.
NI : Some people are born and some are trained to have an eye for aesthetics. No matter which, once you have it, you would question how things come about, designed the way they are and why.
NI : I chose this field, albeit it took a while to get to where I am today. I believe the journey matters. You do not always end up with what you want but it is important to notice every door that opens along the way for you.
NI : Interiors and exteriors of buildings. We hope one day we can touch base on public installations.
NI : Work hard and be unique.
NI : You have to be a visionary to be a great designer. Look beyond.
NI : It is designed appropriately for the users and leaves a lasting impact to the people and environment.
NI : Good design will most likely give a lasting impact, you almost cannot put a value on that.
NI : I would like to design public installations for Malaysians to value public spaces and arts.
NI : Public installations.
NI : Besides yourself, it is important that the studio's visions are understood by your team and that every single member sees those and go the distance with you.
NI : Tadao Ando and modern low bro artists in the Art field.
NI : They created past movements, they reached out to all corners of the world.
NI : Our projects with briefs meant for an international audience. We had to be familiar with different people, what they are familiar with back home, their culture, their take on what is good design and etc. It opens up our minds to new things and this always sets new bars for our studio to go for.
NI : Realize the changing times and the need to be always evolving.
NI : Archaeologist
NI : Design makes our life better and comforting aesthetically.
NI : My business partners and team members.
NI : Constantly feel inspired and push yourself to be original.
NI : We had to be good at the business side of this industry, keep the company afloat and going. This is not something designers are trained for at school, obviously. Unknowingly, we would pick up a lot of other skills when managing a company and as such, those skills will ultimately help and advance us on the design side too.
NI : Imagine selling an identity, it is important to build confidence and have a sense of belief that you are doing things that could make things better for the people, country and the world. Whatever it is, believe in every dot of your pen marks and the ideas that you have inputted in.
NI : We are looking at touching base on offices spaces and common areas in large commercial buildings.
NI : It is to be the best in what we do in Malaysia and represent Malaysian creative interior minds and see them realized all over the world.
NI : They would expect a well-rounded design that stand out from the rest and that you are able to interpret it out in a story-telling manner that makes perfect sense to them.
NI : That things can be improved and become better. That we are appreciative of beautiful things, done humanely for ourselves.
NI : We are currently working on some very interesting large common areas for commercial buildings. This is something new to us and we are eager to venture into. Our clients put their trusts in us and give us lots of room for creativity.
NI : All our projects, because it is amazing to see how the initial brief sets the plan in motion and the end product encompasses the designer's creative inputs. We approach each project differently because we believe not one client is the same and that makes us take on different stances which result in beautiful variations of our company's design interpretations.
NI : Design stems from creativity and creativity comes from one's intellect. Hence, I hope that people see the significance in that and see the value in one's creativity.
NI : Slowly recognized in our country as we put emphasis on commerce all the while.
NI : 3 months on average.
NI : Gather the direct information on the user(s).
NI : Passion & Dreams.
NI : Design always trigger the trends that follow. But trends evolve based on location, people, the environment, the economy, technology and etc.
NI : Simplify matters and problems. Also allows us to achieve the impossible by letting us visualize them.
NI : AutoCaD, 3Ds Max and VRay.
NI : Brings out the mood, the emotional reactions of those who see or experience them.
NI : Who is this design for? I think it is important to know the origin of the project or design.
NI : Form and function and the level of pushing the threshold.
NI : Yes, design comes out best when working in a team. That would be our current business partners.
NI : Trial and error plus taking up new advance courses. It takes time too to evolved as one ages.
NI : Definitely Andy Warhol, would like to meet a designer outside the architecture and interior design realm.
NI : It is not, but to meet others' expectations is. And whether or not you can be consistent is also vital.
NI : Recently mesmerized with the colour teal and travels to London keeps us inspired.
NI : A happy client, we are in the service industry after all. One of our main objectives is to make one's client happy by fulfilling and exceeding their expectations.
NI : Growing up with Lego, yes, I was very interested with constructions and imaginative forms. It would make some sense now that whatever you engaged with when you were young, would influence you in one way or another.
NI : Design will be seamless, based on futuristic material and constructed fluidly bypassing standard conventional construction methods.
NI : We wish to show the world that Malaysian designers are dedicated and passionately want to establish their own identity. As such, we are very competitive, imaginative and creative to be recognized on the world stage.
