Chief Chicago is a modern pied-a-terre meant to serve as a third space for women to find supportive connection and empowerment. A mix of vintage and contemporary furniture pieces evoke a worldly aesthetic, while the expression of the existing architectural wood beam structure is celebrated with workshop detailing in millwork and cabinetry details. Art features emphasize this thriving workshop atmosphere with bold canvasses laid out in the space as if in mid-process. An amazing work by AvroKO!
Eaton Hong Kong
Once a business hotel in the ’90s, Eaton is a reinvented hotel in Kowloon, Hong Kong, designed to organically build community and to inspire creative collaboration and activism. AvroKO takes inspiration from the evocative nostalgia of the 1950s and ’60s Hong Kong, and applies features such as neon signs in the most harmonious of ways.
Located on the 19th floor of the Rosewood Hotel in Bangkok, Nan Bei, meaning South and North respectively in Chinese, is a luxurious, contemporary Chinese dining experience backdropped by an exhilarating view of the Bangkok skyline.

An ode to luxury design!
Following in the footsteps of Quality Meats and Quality Italian, the design for Quality Bistro is based on imaginary characters and their homes. Whereas Quality Meats was inspired by a turn of the 20th-century New York butcher shop and tenement apartment, and Quality Italian a 1930’s apothecary and Tuscan villa, Quality Bistro uses the French countryside as its point of departure, capturing the spirit of a fictionalized Belle Époque era hotel caught in the 1970s. With its outside gardens, gilded with mirrored walls and Opaline chandeliers, this hospitality design project is another great work by the New York-based design firm.
The lighting fixture is moulded to resemble the features and look of a round golden branch, with two different tiers with pendant lights hanging from a round structure. Handmade from cast brass, this chandelier has an organic shape and intricate contemporary details to create an adjustable arrangement in a harmonious ensemble. Suitable for luxury homes and upscale rooms.
The AvroKO team found its inspiration for the design of Single Thread in the husband and wife team and owners, Kyle and Katina Connaughton. In understanding that a restaurant is not only a place to eat but also a functioning studio for its craftsmen, AvroKO created a dining experience, where diners are given the opportunity to both observe the artistic process and enjoy its end product.
The Zodiac Room
In this hospitality desig project, AvroKO created a sophisticated but innovative narrative by reinterpreting classical inspirations like New Formalism through a modern lens, pioneering the local avant-garde spirit of The New York School’s poets, painters, and creatives active in the 1950s, and drawing inspiration from the futuristic vision of Neiman Marcus’s own Fascinating Fortnight, a world-famous celebration of international culture, cuisine and fashion.
Every hospitality setting presented by Avroko design features bespoke furniture and lighting designs that are quite special. Nothing is left to chance as they continue to impress every interior design aficionado with their creative mid-century modern design ideas and golden accents.
