Hospitality Design - Marketplace Fall 2020 - 24

perspectives on our radar

Topher Kong and Stein Wang
Toronto
The details: Topher Kong and Stein Wang, who hail from Guangzhou and Shanghai,
respectively, met while earning their undergraduate degrees in industrial design at OCAD
University in Toronto. During their collaborations on various academic and commercial
projects, they discovered that they challenged each other, and decided to establish their
own firm, Hi Thanks Bye, after graduation in 2017, finding early success with Collection 0
(shown). "We head toward very different directions when we seek inspiration," Wang says.
"Topher has a taste for a wide range of indie music and sculptural art, while I like to draw
inspiration from photography and fashion." Their latest is the Swell seating line, part of the
Be My Guest collection, that was designed with the idea of entertaining guests in smaller
spaces: Its round and plump form embraces the user's body, and all its tangible surfaces are
upholstered. Having to halt their 2020 collection due to the pandemic, the duo is currently
preparing for a 2021 launch. "We are relatively young in this field," says Kong. "We would
like to try and challenge our perspectives often and not let a fixed aesthetic constrain us."

The details: Steffany Hollingsworth knew from an early age
that she wanted to become a designer. Raised in a small oilpatch town on the Texas-New Mexico border, she would draw
floorplans of her ideal home while in church. She attended
Texas Tech and Oregon State Universities for her interior
design degree, and then worked at a showroom in Dallas before
landing a merchandising and purchasing job with designer
Kelly O'Neal, a position that Hollingsworth says helped her
develop a broad range of skills. Her first foray into the product
world was working with Cosentino as a trendspotter, charged
with co-creating a new color for the Silestone line. "[That]
taught me what is possible in the world of materials," she says.
"I rediscovered with new insight how product and interiors
work tap into very different headspaces, yet are mutually
supportive and synergistic disciplines." Embarking on her
own, she founded PARE Strategies in February of this year,
and is preparing to dip her toes in bath, textiles, lighting, and
flooring design. "I'm best known as a natural culler of ideas,"
Hollingsworth adds. "I don't bring ego to the process, rather an
openness to the most valuable, refined, and distilled ideas, thus
the name of my company."
