This Iconic Eames-Inspired Building Will House The Best In Design Brands
Designed by Architect Jojo Tolentino of Aidea, CWC’s world class, iconic and sustainable building will host a furniture museum, a co-working space and a rooftop restaurant as well as a showroom
Last June 7th, CWC Interiors hosted a groundbreaking event for the highly anticipated CWC Design Center, right in the heart of Makati. The CWC Design Center will be completed in time to celebrate CWC Interiors’ 30th year—the perfect way to usher in a new era of growth and giving back, part of the company’s commitment to a constantly evolving and growing design industry.
“The CWC Design Center is a testament to the evolution and growth of our company. From a firm that was dealing initially in just furniture, it now offers over 32 world-renowned brands. CWC Interiors aims to invest in the future of design and architecture by offering the best that the world has to offer under one iconic Eames-inspired building, right here in the Philippines,” shared CWC President and CEO Fred H. Yuson. His wife Sarah Yuson and son Shaun were also present at the groundbreaking to show full support for the project.
With the goal of bringing the best of mid-century design to Filipinos, the CWC Design Center will contain the iconic designs and original pieces that CWC has to offer, as well as house a furniture museum, a co-working space, and a rooftop restaurant. The center aims to provide a venue where seasoned architects and designers can exchange ideas and collaborate with the younger generation, fostering learning and creativity in the evolving design industry.
Designed by master Architect Jojo Tolentino of Aidea, the building will highlight a showroom featuring CWC Interior’s premium, high quality pieces, which are all the very best of modern and iconic designs. Tolentino designed the center with the following principles in mind: World class, Iconic, and Sustainable— deeming the structure as “a Design Center that invest in the future, here and now.” The building will boast of LEED Certification, a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. During the groundbreaking, Arch. Tolentino described the center to be “innovative, a game changer in the industry.”
The CWC Design Center’s furniture museum will feature the history of furniture design, both of modern and classic pieces. The museum will be open to the public for regular tours and viewing and will host design talks with industry leaders.
The co-working space will feature iconic furniture from CWC’s roster of premium brands, as it will provide a live experience of an office space environment that features the latest in trends and modern design from CWC.
The top floor of the design center will house CWC Solutions Inc, which offers the service of conceptualization, layout, and design for those who are in need of renovation and construction of office and commercial spaces.
The groundbreaking ceremony was led by Yuson, who expressed “This is truly the culmination of all the hard work, and a great vision that is finally coming to life.” CWC’s partners and stakeholders were present to show support and celebrate this momentous feat.
Architect Fred Sibug, the Immediate Past president of the Phil Institute of Architects was also present at the event and shared his excitement for the upcoming structure. Government officials such as Congressman Luis Campos, Barangay Captain Ernie Moya of San Lorenzo, Councilor Dennis Almario, and Kagawad Carlos Sario graced the event, showing their support and anticipation for the world-class design center.
