    As most our regular readers and clients now know, at Studio EM we are all about breaking up the monotony of conventional commercial interior design. We loving nothing more than designs that inject vibrancy and creativity into old and tired project forms, this is the evolution or rather design revolution that we want to be part of and to possibly spearhead in the Middle […]

    Call me an OCD type of designer but I am a real stickler for great colourful clean spaces where the design of the store allows and encourages flow and visually enticing features that subtly blend into the overall structure of the store. I don’t know what it is, it’s not that I am a neat freak (trust me you just need to see my […]


    When we chat to Studio EM perennial favourites Kirsty Cassels and Fern Lewis on Twitter we are reminded of our awesome days as design students.

    Yesterday we met with a new client to discuss an office design project and as inevitable it is the topic of conversation turned to finances and more specifically cost.

    As a continuation of our theme that commercial interior design really can be applied to any commercial project, we are featuring the unlikeliest of categories in today’s blog feature. We firmly believe that interior design and the creativity behind it can be applied to any project be it a 130,000 square foot fashion store, a cobblers, a café, restaurant a hotel or even a […]

    As it is coming to the end of our week in the UAE we thought today’s feature project should lighten the mood somewhat and have a colourful and fun element to it. We came across this project when we were researching for mood boards for a new concept we are working on that is geared towards students, at the time of the research this […]

    Pop Up retail is vastly becoming our favourite form of retail; we have continuously blogged about it in the past in these entries. The pop up concept allows for just about any concept to be created featuring a store so as to cause a raucous or buzz before it moves on to the next location or worse before it is broken down never to […]
