Respecting people is our core value. We believe that respect brings synergy. Synergy leads to excellence. This value chain is embedded in the company DNA.
It all started in 2000 when Philippe Larose, the company founder and Design Director, decided to go onto a new entrepreneur journey after serving various European luxury brands for many years. He established Phil Design with a belief in mind – interior design is just as important as marketing strategy in strengthening corporate identity and crucial to enjoyable in-shop customer experience.
Philippe Larose started the company with passion, experience and a rental desk at a corner of the office of his previous supplier when he was in a client position. His first project was a ‘one-gondola’ project for Bulgari. We are so proud and grateful for continually accompanying Bulgari over the past 20 years.
There are two critical milestones in this humble journey. The first one was the joining of Catherine Chan in 2007, who once worked with Philippe Larose at L’Oreal. Her exceptional ability to read clients’ minds and fulfil even their unspoken needs has been instrumental in building Phil Design’s reputation. As she continues to gain experience and further her professional development, Catherine is now a company Director leading a team of Project Managers.
Another milestone was when Phil Design’s factory in Guangdong came into operation in 2013. Then, Phil Design truly became a one-stop shop for interior design and build services, having headquarters in Hong Kong and production in mainland China supported by almost 100 multicultural staff members.
From renting one work desk to putting every brick and wall together to build the China factory, Philippe Larose is proud of what we have achieved together. Phil Design will continue to strive for excellence and support our clients and business partners with the best efforts.
