A curious Canadian designer who loves to think outside the box. “Do we really need a box?”
Siobhan Donoghue M.Sc. Interior Architecture + Exhibition Design, Pratt Institute, New York
Favourite sayings of Siobhan:
"You need to think about the whole brand experience from the guest's perspective - the website and the menu along with the space."
"I’m interested in the human use of spaces, and how humans interact and move around spaces."
"The bathroom in a restaurant is so important - that alone can create media buzz."
"I’m not your friend to go shopping with. I'm here to get your project done."
"There are eight billion chairs in the world. I can find you the right one."
