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.
