Working for renowned practices includ­ing David Ling in New York, Gunther Spitzley in Zurich, Matteo Thun Studio in Milan and DWP Malaysia, Vera also honed her skills at Global Hospitality chains Marriott Holdings and Accor, broadening her knowledge of custom product design: light installations, furniture, textiles and accessories.

“The client brief on the Ritual Cafe & yoga studio was different than the usual brief­ing, The space is created as a city escape offering the client a cafe and restaurant in combination with a yoga studio.”

“Simplicity, airiness and calm surroundings to highlight the minimalistic design and the calm design style of the space while following our own design language. The shapes are clean and minimal and follow the sleek geometry of the space. The colors of the space are inspired by the light sand tones of the region high­lighted with some color accents in saf­fron and cream tones while using differ­ent textures. To support the functionality and create a connection with the double height space, we decided to use the Knit­-Wit lights by Made by Hand and arranged them in a cluster installed in the double height void. It was important for us to select the Knit-­Wit lights as the design of the light is reflecting the overall design mood of the space while adding a calm­ing and warm design element to the space. The half transparent surface of the lights and the soft shapes add to the geometric space.”
