Andante Celebrates 10th Year Anniversary as a Representation of Contemporary Living in Furniture and Lighting
Andante, a life-style expert specializing in contemporary designer furniture, lighting and decorative items, announced that 2015 marks the 10th year anniversary of its founding.
Founder of Andante, Mr Tony Luk, an architect by profession, was thinking to launch a luxury furniture company started when the market was at its lowest ebb, back to the SARS outbreak of 2003. Despite many jobs being wiped out by the first pandemic of the 21st century, he decided the time was right to take the plunge.
By 2004, Tony’s vision became reality when the Duddell Street emporium opened it doors. Andante is the exclusive dealer of Minotti in Hong Kong, Macau and southwestern China. The well-known Italian brand unveils a new collection every year at the annual Milan International Furniture Fair. Tony credits his interest in furniture to his background in architecture and interior design, another reason for his choosing Minotti as well as the handmade Italian lighting brand – Lolli e Memmoli.
Of course, the furniture Andante carries is exquisite, but the products alone are not the key to its success. The ingredient that keeps Andante ahead of his competitors is their knowledge of the dynamics of the luxury lifestyle market. After establishing Andante in Hong Kong in 2004, Tony opened the second store in Chengdu in 2013, which is the capital city of Sichuan Province, also known as the most important city with huge upside potential in southwestern China.
Andante has seen 10 years of the Hong Kong contemporary lifestyle scene. “Andante’s 10th anniversary is a tremendous milestone to us all. Ten years ago, we established Andante with the mindset that we could create a successful company and introduce timeless furniture to Hong Kong. Andante has demonstrated this over 10 years and we look forward to continuing that culture and our relentless pursuit of perfection,” said Tony.
As a passion, Tony has been taking photos for years and it will be a good chance to share his masterwork with good friends. To kick off the photo-jamming series, Gary Chang of Edge Design Institute will be joining us at our first exhibition on 16th Jan, 2015. Thank you for helping us make the past ten years so successful. We look forward to greeting you as our special guest on 16th Jan, 2015.
