Ponti Design Studio

Ponti Design Studio is a Hong Kong-based product design company specializing in highly distinctive, brand-building and iconic design. Founded in 2012 by Italian designer Andrea Ponti and Japanese design consultant Shiori Kuroiwa, the Studio focuses on high end products combining technological excellence with emotional design language.

The product range includes technology, high end electronics, audio equipments, watches and wearables, furniture and lifestyle products. The Studio also provides branding and art direction services to client companies in North America, Europe and Asia. Ponti Design Studio has a minimalist approach based on two principles: simplifying and reducing, while preserving appearance and functionality.

The design process starts from designing the product - the physical object that is the essence of a brand. Subsequently, the identity of the brand is created around the product by progressively exploring and polishing the design language used to design the physical object.

Thanks to this minimalist approach which focuses on the real essence of the object, over the years Ponti Design Studio has developed numerous collaborations with leading international companies such as Panasonic, Philips, Oppo, Samsonite, The Peninsula Hotels as well as local companies and startups.
