I absolutely had to photograph Timo and Priscilla. It wasn’t that anyone specifically asked me to, but having seen their work I felt an incredible urge to meet them in person, to see if they were as delicate and beautiful and extraordinary as their work.
And of course they were.
The thing about Timo and Priscilla is that it’s very hard not to like them. They smile easily and there is an easy sense of camaraderie between them. While photographing them there were many moments when they would tease each other gently, and this casualness made things a little easier for me, the photographer who had so rudely intruded upon their private world.
Their studio in Paya Lebar is small but choked full with things – books, prototypes, furniture. The afternoon I was there, the mid-day light spilled into the studio, illuminating everything. After a short chat, Timo and Priscilla went back to work as I explored the little space, training my camera on the details.
The details, I think, will tell you something crucial about these two wonderful, talented designers.
And so here you go.
