Arboit Limited - Design and Architecture is a multidisciplinary firm created by 2008 to provide design services including architecture, interior architecture, exhibition and multimedia design as well as furniture and products. Our extensive expertise in diverse types of projects embodies each client’s unique interests to create design branding signatures that stand out. Arboit Ltd was established in 2008 to respond to a demand for a unique niche of designers and project managers who have specialized skills and experience in creative design.   Arboit Ltd is currently investigating a way to evolve the architectural typologies to produce relevant and sustainable projects into the fast changing Asian cultural, economic and social reality. Our approach in interior design is all about focusing on experimentation and craftmanship. 

By researching new technologies and materials we  ensures creating innovative interiors in pushing the conventional aesthetic boundaries against a standardized mainstream aesthetic and by proposing artisanal techniques we provide a sense of uniqueness. Each project has at least one innovative material becoming the vehicle of the conceptual expression, like Corian being engraved and back illuminated as decorative wall panel, or three-dimensional ceramic tiles to create sculptural surface, or Dupont’s glass laminated SGX to render on floor gigantic digital paintings. We value  the idea of  a design conversation between cultural heritage and contemporary culture therefore we frequently include in or work design languages from the past although filtered by a  modern interpretation in order to make it not letteral, more interesting and relatable to a  younger audience.

By having the opportunity to extend his knowledge through different fields like architecture, renovation of historical buildings, interior and furniture design he achieved a very precious experience.

The Present

Arboit Limited is a design firm  interested in using spatial design to define new typologies of places to reflect necessities and potentialities of a fast-changing society and to conceive a better quality of living.

In working on retail projects the main intent has always been breaking the standardized scheme of displaying typical of every retail outlet by introducing spatial metal sculptures as hangers - Monospace - three dimensional feature walls - Pesaro - and immaterial backdrop characterized by curved waves of light - Maryling.

Concerning working environments design the objective of /Arboit Ltd is to discuss the very Asian notion of office or working space in general as a merely productive place and to add a chilled  element of quality of life and to introduce the notion of "Work & Play". We live in a world whose physical form increasingly segregates us into separate places to sleep, eat, learn, work, and play. Modernist concepts of floor plans define each section of a building into specialized components which meet particular functions. These concepts are guided by the belief that man can reach his maximum potential in any aspect of his life in an environment which is specifically designed for and dedicated to that purpose. As studies have demonstrated by combining together “Work and Play” we could radically evolve the basic concept of working space from a functional interior to a much exciting experience and our ability to fulfill essential life processes is a function of our emotional and physiological state as well as the surrounding environment. In "Work & Play" we react to our surrounding in new and different ways; we see and touch our world from a new perspective and attach new meanings to our environment. We don’t normally react to the work space around us in passive compliance; we tend to engage ourselves in interactive way with the space around up so much so our fantastic office design would become the arena of our incredible doing. These ideas are at the base of Arboit Limited most critically acclaimed and awarded interior project so far: Cloud DCS " walking on the sky ". A commercial /working environment is designed as an experience of life.

Within hospitality projects the intent is to step out from the sterile, commercially oriented main stream industry and focusing on artisanal technique like back illuminated engraved Corian panels and Sentry Glass Expression from DUpont, as well as artisanal technique normally discovered within the heritage of the area where the project is located. A network of Furniture suppliers has been built over of the years to put in production any custom-made design.

Human scale urban quality is at the center of large resort and shopping arcade projects in order to reproduce on Asian cities the quality of European historical centers or original hutong urban solution. The spirit of this design is to develop a urban ground and sustainable environment characterized by a human scale space in which people feel  invited to go for social interaction as well as  cultural or commercial activities.
