Interiors by Yoo
By John Hitchcox
ISBN: 978 1 84796 013 9
After ten years of global success, the innovative design company Yoo celebrates a decade in the industry with the publication of its first book Interiors by Yoo. Sharing trade secrets from its stable of world class designers: Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, Jade Jagger and Kelly Hoppen, this inspirational book imparts ideas about how to create a stunning living space that is right for you.
The book showcases some of Yoo’s most cutting-edge interior design projects in hotels and private residences, and highlights themes each designer has developed within each project. For example, the distinctive ‘Culture’ designs by Philippe Starck; the surreal ‘Eclectic’ styles by Marcel Wanders, the timeless ‘Urban’ palette synonymous with Kelly Hoppen and the 1970s ‘Disco’ theme palette by Jade Jagger. The book then goes on to discuss how each theme works with the use of specific colour schemes, furniture and products.
In his personal introduction to the book, John Hitchcox, Chairman of Yoo, explains. “This book is a collection of our work, a tool to stimulate you into thinking about the kind of things you want to surround yourself with at home.”
Overflowing with great ideas and design innovation, Interior by Yoo includes feature pages, inspirational photography and interviews with each celebrity designer. It also provides an insight into the design decisions that have gone into making each project, and how these decisions can be used to create a calm and happy home.
