Gabriel Tan is renowned for pushing the boundaries of product and furniture design. With studios in Singapore and Porto, Tan’s work crosses the borders of craft, culture and technology. Striving to subvert archetypes and reinterpret luxury pieces, his work beautifully demonstrates an aptitude for functional and creative design.
Whether innovating products, serving as a judge at festivals or guest lecturing at established institutions worldwide, Tan is always busy bringing his new ideas to life. He is the creative director of three companies: Turn, Ariake and Origin. The latter came into fruition after Tan’s visit to Portugal in 2014. Mesmerised by the craftsmanship and unique materials found in Portuguese workshops, Tan decided to enlist the finest artisans to offer Portuguese craft, industry and culture to the world in the form of ceramic, glass, leather, stone and wooden goods.
First and foremost, Tan wants to bring people closer to their possessions and connect them to their makers. His contribution to design has rewarded him with worldwide recognition, including the Singaporean President's Design Award. Tan has curated several collaborations with us; his Hole tables beautifully demonstrate Carrara marble’s unique veining, the Tenon wall shelves embody balance and stability and the Monument storage series flaunts the properties of Fenix.
