INSPIRATION IS CREATIVITY, CREATIVITY IS PASSION, PASSION IS DEDICATION.
White Jacket blends global inspirations and differentiated experiences to capture the essence of future luxury in hospitality and F&B design.
Created in 2010 by Patricia Ho Douven, White Jacket is an integrated, multi-disciplinary design studio supported by a team of creative, highly skilled, and driven designers bringing international exposures and experiences to a bespoke design studio. Even though hospitality work represents the core of our portfolio, we also focus on projects that challenge, stimulate and enhance our skills and experience. In our minds there are no boundaries in design, we aspire to create a holistic design world that encompasses all design elements. Like a fresh piece of canvas, projects are tailored to suit seamlessly to a design brief. This design approach results in our intimate involvement in customisation of art, furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories and our ability to lead graphic, uniform, cutlery and menu custom design.
We are constantly exploring more possibilities to expand our horizons as we strive to create every project with a unique and distinct personality. Our work is less sterile, more unique, more personal, more humane, more White Jacket.
CREATING A NEW DIALOGUE, CHALLENGING THE BOUNDARIES, EMBRACING THE UNKNOWN.
“To redefine luxury and introduce a new level of sophistication, one has to break away from the sensory overload of normality. My work will always be intriguing and engaging, encouraging people to reconsider their relationship to the interior spaces and objects around them” - Patricia Ho Douven
By her own admission as a bibliophile and a curious,passionate traveller, Patricia approaches each project as a well written novel, interweaving narratives and interior spaces. The story begins with a character, distinctive personalities, surroundings and environments. As the story develops the spaces take shape, from ideas to form.
A reflection of a well-traveled spirit influence by multicultural sensibilities, each meticulously designed collection is a modern expression of an effortless style and enduring beauty.
This approach is unique to individual projects. By initiating and creating a dialogue between her works and the visitors, the interior has soul, filling the significant commercial gap, providing a modern and convivial alternative. This notion becomes visible by taking the journey through her works, aspiring visitors to more density, more depth of emotion, imprinting lasting memories.
DESIGN IS HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH YOUR AUDIENCE. IT'S NOT WHAT YOU CAN SEE BUT WHAT YOU MAKE OTHERS SEE.
Behind every successful studio, is a team of dedicated and passionate individuals. We work, laugh and complain together. And most importantly, we dream together.
We are perfectionist. We are spontaneous. We are meticulous.
Each of us have distinctively different characteristic, but we share the same core value and passion in design. Having multi-cultural background amongst us stimulates our creativity and open mindedness in design approaches.
We love to share the enormous satisfactions and experiences from our projects.
A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN IS THE PRODUCT OF A COLLABORATIVE PROCESS.
We value lasting and trusting relationships with our clients and partners.
