Another on the interior design hall of fame is the yabu pushelberg company. Based out of toronto canada. It is a collaboration between two interiors designers that also create glassware and other things like residential and commercial properties.
The two designers in question are Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu founded in 1980 which was initially interior design, but later they branched out into the design world as a whole.
Currently they have a 100 strong team of designers in Toronto and New york which consists of architects and more that all work together creating beautiful buildings and interiors.
Yabu pushelberg hotel
You may have seen some hotels that were designed by yabu pushelberg, and some are simply incredible. I always think it interesting when designers take on the responsibility of interior design for these huge undertakings. Hotels are even more fascinating, because there is an element of you having to sell yourself because they are a commercial property. Think about when you go to a hotel… you look at the photos right? And the interior design? So basically you need to sell it in that one photo.
Check out the moxy chelsea hotel for example; in the heart of new york this amazingly designed bar/lobby area is super stylish and ristic, but in a way that is kind of different to the designs of Mark Zeff.
You can also find the incredible looking blush pink and cream pop up store for a GOOP (beauty company in toronto) that was also created by yabu pushelberg.
This could be my favourite store design of all time, the mix of natural elements and industrial aspects.
Yabu pushelberg furniture
You can see the ivory cement table, as well as a sink that was designed by Yabu pushelberg too. In addition to this table, they have also created other tablets over the years. See the surf table for instance. An incredible table that is both functional and stylish it has a handle, and a top but it also has a bottom stand that acts as another surface.
Yabu Pushelberg book
There is a book noting the companies various achievements and buildings over the years. It is worth a read. In addition to this, if you are wanting to keep up to date with the company's recent works. you can follow the yabu pushelberg instagram for a day to day account of some of the fantastic projects they are working on. Super cool.
Yabu pushelberg Screen
You will find a few perfect examples of wall screens and partitions from YP interior designers. In my experience I have found that recently , screens are vastly underutilised and underused. But they are a fantastic resource for breaking up a space, especially if you have a loft space that needs a natural partition. We only need to look to the past to find out about things like screens, and bringing them into the 21st century is super important when it comes to innovation. This is what I love about Yabu Pushelberg Projects, they have that true visionary spirit and innovation. To add to visionary spirit, I would like to highlight another interior designer. Sir Terence Conran.
