Studio Profile


Tsai Design Studio is a young and dynamic architecture, interior and furniture design studio based in Cape Town, South Africa. The studio is a multidisciplinary practice with a diverse portfolio of urban projects that each carries our hallmark of creativity, innovation and experimentation.

In our architectural designs, we create dynamic, sometimes unconventional and unexpected, proposals that allow the building to reflect its own personality, while staying true to its core function. In our furniture design and interior design, we like to play with materials and new configurations, leading to ideas that offer a constantly changing perspective. The work we do in one discipline can and does influence the work we do in others.

We have won several design accolades and awards, including the prestigious international Red Dot Award; the International Young Design Entrepreneur Award sponsored by the British Council; and an honorable mention for “Young Architects In Africa” Award in 2014. Our Nested Bunk Bed was voted by the public as the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa. While many of our projects have been built to completion, we also allow our creativity to flow into international and local competitions.
