Beatrice Starby

Born in Sweden, Beatrice moved to Abu Dhabi with her family when she was 3 years old.

For Beatrice, witnessing the transformation of Abu Dhabi from a formally undeveloped town of only local importance to one of the most opulent, fast-paced modern cities on earth with a fully developed infrastructure truly sparked her interest in design.

To pursue a design career, Beatrice moved to Singapore to study spatial and interior design.  She completed a Bachelor of Arts graduating with honours and gained a scholarship with HBA .  There she entered the world of hospitality working on high profile projects such as the Four Seasons, Shangri-la, Ritz Carlton Hotels and the St Regis.

Wanting more independece as a designer, Beatrice joined a dynamic start-up design build & firm where she led projects between Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.

When the pandemic hit, Beatrice shifted her focus to furniture design before deciding to move to New Zealand for a different quality of life and a new way of working.
