The firm has been lauded for its unique approach to every project, its bespoke design process and the emotive response its spaces evoke. With a growing staff of over 60 talented designers, technologists, project managers, furniture and furnishing specialists and an in-house art consultant, the firm is poised to embrace and ever increasing and sophisticated clientele. A big part of what they do is help their clients realise the business behind great design. Alessandro Munge’s desire has always been to marry creative sense with business sense by providing concrete solutions to help com- panies succeed from both perspectives. He built Studio Munge on those ground, and the team have become experts at it. Some designers have a very set look and feel, but Studio Munge believe that every project has a life of its own and deserves a fully tailored design solu- tion. They go beyond an established recipe and spend a great deal of time analysing their client’s branding, business needs and target demographic before coming up with a design concept and narrative. Ultimately it results in very authentic spaces filled with individuality and personality. Nowadays, the vast majority of their drawings and sketches are done digitally by their team of expert designers and technologists, which is a big part of what they do as a design studio. When it comes to applied technology at construction level, Studio Munge have an in-house resource specialist travelling the world to discover the latest and greatest materials, suppliers and fabricators. They have many great luxury hotels and residences, as well restaurants and lounges on the go, over 50 projects all in all. They wouldn’t want to favour one over another, but following the construction timeline, the next prop- erties to open will be the William Vale Hotel in Brooklyn NY, The Parkside Residences in Hong Kong and Libertine Social at Mandalay Bay for MGM Hospitality.
