Last July 11, 2011, I was invited to attend the opening of Adefuin Design Studio and the launch of AdOR Interiors. Both are located at the newly renovated Suite 309 of LRI Design Plaza.
Adefuin Design Studio is the baby of Jigs Adefuin, a sought-after interior designer who has been in the business for 15 years. He specializes in transforming high-end condominiums, townhouses and loft spaces into roomy functional spaces. The Design Studio is where he entertains clients and brainstorms with other experts to create a perfect concept to suit the clients’ needs.
AdOR Interiors is a venture of Jig’s partner Oliver Ortiz. Oliver chose to focus on furniture and design pieces cohesive to Adefuin Design Studio’s concepts.
The Studio itself is like a work of art. The use of tempered glass for the walls creates the illusion of space and allows natural light to filter into the reception area. It also draws guests’ attention to the imposing chandelier outside. The room hints of a contemporary East-Meets-West concept conveyed through unique pieces such as the Ming-style chair, Chinese console table, and Ashwood center table with vibrantly hued accessories that highlights an Arturo Luz painting on the wall. The conference room has drop lights that illuminate a Ramon Orlina azure crystal sculpture. A marble table and the built-in shelves feature various accessories from the private collection of Adefuin and Ortiz. Next to the conference room are the work stations replete with stimulating elements such as books on art and design, symmetric Ashwood tables, and more pieces by Arturo Luz and Federico Alcuaz.
During the launch, the guests and I were treated to some works of National Artists and Masters such as Arturo Luz, Federico Alcuaz, Romulo Olazo and Onib Olmeda. Sublime classical music by the scholars of Coke Bolipata, a renowned Filipino violinist.
Adefuin Design Studio and AdOR Interiors are located at Suit 309, LRI Design Plaza, Nicanor Garcia St., Makati City.
