"Design should transcend trends and style; keep evolving to an unknown form, to an unexpected result."
Quality is what counts, and that’s how we work. Reshaping people’s lives through our design is what we pursue.
KEZIA KARIN Studio produce its remarkable result through collaborative practice that forges clearly articulated, meaningful ideas, with innovation, purpose, youth, and experience.
Our Studio’s multidisciplinary approach is driven by an endless curiosity. We gladly take risks to present a strong point of view, a concept to begin the design process, crafting a unique and individual narrative concept for each project. From the big picture to the smallest details.
Design Concept is powerful and ground-breaking. It’s not just a series of ideas underlying the whole design development, but also acts as the connector between the various elements we are going to put in the designated space which is developed to solve spatial problems, while it also entrances the perspective of the human mind. Bringing these key factors into life is how we seize the moment to stand out among the rest.
We stand by the idea that our design will always evolve to encompass all aspects of design that transcends trends and styles. Our design is distinguished with it is live-able, balanced, and thoughtful designs. For those reasons, it’s very important for us to experiment with materials, and collaborate with independent artists and artisans and other diversely talented people.
Capturing the spirit of the client and the essence of space is the key to great design. Nothing defines an interior design more than its transcending personality from inside out. KEZIA KARIN Studio’s philosophy is rooted in this simple belief that our part is to translate and enhance what has been our client’s desire into the given space with the eventual work - shaping the environment into an experience.

We grew locally and stronger. Since then, we’ve been working on several hospitality projects for hotels, resorts, and villas all across nations.
