Interview with Deco Farmer Studio

What made you decide to become a designer?

Since I was young, I have always felt that spaces in Hong Kong are small and every inch of land is precious. As I grew older, I hoped to use design to improve the quality of living and elevate the standard of living spaces. Can you tell us more about your design background? Heiman Chan is an interior designer born and raised in Hong Kong, with 10 years of experience in the field. Growing up in this bustling city, he understands that every inch of space is hard-won, gradually cultivating a passion for interior design. In this densely populated place, every design is a new challenge, and every concept requires the integration of different personal ideas and stylistic features. However, as long as he can create a comfortable and practical space, it will bring him a deep sense of satisfaction. He hopes to continue listening to different voices in the future and help people find the blueprint to their vision.

How do you stay inspired and keep coming up with creative ideas? Look for inspiration surroundings, nature, art, music. Keep a journal to capture ideas and inspirations; Continuously learning new things can help spark new ideas and keep my mind stimulated. Creativity is not something that comes naturally to everyone, but it can be developed and nurtured with time and effort. Stay curious, stay open-minded, and keep pushing myself to try new things.

What does good design mean to you? Warmth defines our style. We mainly use warm palettes with different design styles to create warm, comfortable homes. From there we tailor designs styles to suit our clients preferences, habits and spaces to enhance the aesthetics and sense of space.

What is the most challenging thing in your profession? One of the most challenging things in design is to turn ideas into reality.

Please, explain the best project you are most proud of and why. The Sham Tseng Lido Garden project. The owner was running an online vintage store and wanted a vintage vibe for his home too. So, we combined resource material elements and design details with the owner's collection for the perfect vintage look. We used a breeze block feature wall to partition the entrance from the living home, and then ran cement walls and wood elements through the entire house to delineate spaces. Retro-pattern glass was added to doors to complete the style and bring the house together.

What is your biggest design career moment? How does this milestone impact your career? After establishing and designing my own design company, I became more determined to share my accumulated experience and ideas with my colleagues, inspiring everyone's uniqueness to create more diverse designs for our clients.

How do you learn and grow your knowledge and design skills? Experience gained during the journey; learning different design techniques from different design units of different sizes; sensing different lifestyle preferences and ways from different people and spaces, and using different techniques to solve problems in the space; enhancing knowledge from different cases (such as space planning, space management, design uniqueness, and design techniques for people and space).

What would you say will be future of design? For future design direction, it will depend on the unique characteristics of the individual space and will no longer be limited to a particular style category. Instead, it will focus on humanization and environmental protection, and have more interaction with intelligent AI, in order to achieve sustainability, environmental protection, and automation of the space. What are your career plans for the future? We''ll continue to make breakthroughs with each and every one of our designs, and communicate with clients to present them with aesthetic concepts and innovative ideas the way we always have. And we hope to welcome new types of design projects and new spaces. Being able to receive design recognition in design reviews in different places, allows more people to become familiar with our company.
