Andre Fu

The go-to guy for luxury hotel design, André Fu has swiftly risen to the very top of Asia’s design firmament


When André Fu was hired by Swire to design Hong Kong’s Upper House Hotel, he was a young designer with zero hospitality experience and a tiny studio that employed only three people. But it was a commission that made his name overnight, with the hotel’s 2009 launch propelling him into the highest echelon of high-end designers, becoming known for style that combines comfort and elegance — a kind of chilled out, comfort-forward minimalism.

Since then he has worked on numerous luxury hotels: Hong Kong’s Kerry Hotel and St Regis, as well as serviced apartment development K11 Artus; Fullerton Bay Hotel, Andaz and Capella in Singapore; the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok; The Berkeley Hotel in London; the Four Seasons Seoul; and the Shangri-La Tokyo and Hotel The Mitsui Kyoto. He even recently returned to the Upper House to design the penthouse suite, which is named after him. In 2015 he launched his homeware products brand André Fu Living, while he has also designed objects for Louis Vuitton.
