Speaker



Tony Chi
tonychi and associates
Founder

 




Tony Chi distinguishes himself from other designers because of his temperament. He is a perfectionist; meticulous, unwavering and possessing an intensity that provokes emotion, never allowing indifference. His design transcends ephemeral curiosity entertained by the surface of things. He understands that design without functionality is hollow and functionality without people who care to utilize it defeats the purpose. In his own words, "any designer can create a dazzling body but I want to create spaces that have a chance at building a soul." He doesn't merely deliver aesthetics, he delivers an experience. Passionate, discriminating, exacting, and, yes, sometimes "dictatorial," he admits, he brings a rigorous understanding of what makes restaurants work.

tonychi and associates, Inc. was founded in 1984, located in New York City. This firm is indeed known for attention to detail, for orchestrating rich compositions of shagreen and lacquer, aqueous glass mosaics and textured wood veneer, supergraphic-laminated glass and prismatic mirror. Yet to focus solely on such things would be missing the point. For Chi believes in what he calls "invisible design," the notion that, much like good service, a hospitality space should elicit a positive response without necessarily making people aware of why.

He is an interior designer not only with architectural background, but also with the talent in the field of space design. He said, “Architecture is rational, non-pure art, it isn’t unrestrained, it must resort to the implementation of construction materials into space; interior design is emotional, it is the three-dimensional space and the refined sense of aesthetics created via the correct aesthetic proportion concept, wandering between the rational and the emotional.”
