Mr Peter Tay

Design Director,
Peter Tay Studio


Peter Tay of Peter Tay Studio is the celebrity interior designer to stars, such as Zhang Ziyi, Stephanie Sun, Zoe Tay and Wang Leehom. His portfolio comprises high-profile residential and commercial projects. Peter has worked on boutiques and showrooms for Richard Mille, Manolo Blahnik, Armani Casa, Louis Poulsen, Poliform (Space Showroom) and Maxalto (Space Showroom), as well as luxury show flats for SC Global and Hotel Properties Limited (HPL), including Lady Hill, BLVD and Martin 38 in Singapore.

Best known for his sleek yet luxurious approach to design, Peter's designs are contemporary and timeless, and at the same time, they encapsulate the pure essence of space that delicately accentuates the lifestyles of his clientele. He also works on the art of tailoring timeless beauty through materials and textures, which serves to guide design invention and outlines the way in which forms transform over time to envelope life. Often, his designs bridge the perceptive space between interior and exterior spaces, and explore the duality and interchangeability between architecture and interiors.

After graduating from the Architectural Association in London in 2000, Peter worked with some of the leading contemporary architects before starting his own practice in 2001. Peter is also an educator and a keen supporter of design. He has been lecturing for the past 12 years at various design institutions. In 2013, Peter published his first monograph PETER TAY, which was launched in Kyoto, Hong Kong and Singapore in the same year.

Peter participated in the “Time-Space-Existence” exhibition at Palazzo Bembo at the Venice Biennale, Italy in 2014. The exhibition was supported by XTRA and the Design Singapore Council.

In 2014, Peter was conferred the Designer of the Year award at the President's Design Awards.
