Yabu Pushelberg

 

We design places and prod­ucts: immer­sive envi­ron­ments, com­pelling des­ti­na­tions, and con­sid­ered goods. George Yabu and Glenn Pushel­berg found­ed our stu­dio in 1980 with an empha­sis on inte­ri­or design and have since expand­ed our firm into a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice that address­es mul­ti­ple lay­ers of the human experience. 

With offices in New York and Toron­to and a team of more than a hun­dred cre­atives and pro­fes­sion­als, we design build­ings, inte­ri­ors, land­scapes, light­ing, fur­ni­ture, objects, and graph­ics with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make peo­ple feel. 

Our firm and founders have earned many hon­ours, includ­ing being appoint­ed Offi­cers of the Order of Cana­da, induct­ed into the Inte­ri­or Design Hall of Fame, and named among the world’s most influ­en­tial design stu­dios by Wall­pa­per*, Elle Décor, Hos­pi­tal­i­ty Design, and the Busi­ness of Fash­ion. But, the tro­phy shelf is not our pri­ma­ry con­cern. We’re always focused on what’s next, and con­tin­u­al­ly search for the new and inno­v­a­tive, as we strive to con­ceive the mem­o­rable expe­ri­ences of tomorrow.

Our clients include lead­ing hotel and resort brands, devel­op­ers, retail­ers, restau­ra­teurs, man­u­fac­tur­ers, entre­pre­neurs and cre­ative indi­vid­u­als look­ing to stand apart from the crowd. With an approach­able, col­lab­o­ra­tive way of design­ing and solv­ing prob­lems, we believe in dream­ing big and vault­ing over obsta­cles to arrive at fresh new solutions. 

We bring the same atten­tion to detail to every project, from table­top objects to expan­sive new devel­op­ments, and active­ly look for part­ners who share our pas­sion for doing bet­ter than what has been done before. For us, it’s all about design­ing the world we want to live in.
