André Fu, Designer of the Year 2016 of Maison & Objet Asia, has launched a new lifestyle brand - André Fu Living (AFL) - and its signature scent, Fargesia.

The Hong Kong-based architect, who has gained international acclaim for his design of The Upper House, has also been the creative force behind some of the world's most luxurious hotels and restaurants.

Embracing the spirit of "lifestyle from within", Fu forays into a world that goes beyond his spatial creations. His brand will feature a collection of key design pieces conceived from collaborations with unique artisans hand-picked by Fu.

The first product to be launched is Fargesia, an eau de toilette created in collaboration with renowned perfumer Julian Bedel of Fueguia 1833 Patagonia. Fargesia is a unisex scent suitable for the room as well as the body.
