THE TEAM

Charles Chai

Interior Designer 

Since completing his BA in Interior Design from the University of Derby, Charles has honed his skills and participated in many award-winning projects. Thriving in this creative environment, Charles continues to broaden his horizons by exploring various materials, colours and patterns, drawing inspirations to create beautiful projects that resonate both form and function. He hopes that this journey will bring him beyond the local borders, where he will partake in international projects in the next 3 to 5 years. Beyond his work at EightyTwo, he pursues his passion in fine arts with drawing and painting.

Glenn Toh 

Interior Designer 

Glenn graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design, from the Glasgow School of Art Singapore. Inspired by the ethos that good design resonates and speaks for itself, he embarked on his journey with the philosophy that all homes should be pragmatic yet safe and intimate sanctuaries for their users. Glenn firmly believes in being open-minded and keeping a lookout for fresh perspectives in radical concepts that can transcend modern-day design barriers. Meticulous and dedicated to his line of work, Glenn applies the same school of thought to his personal goal to grow and achieve milestones in tandem with the closely knitted team he considers his second family.

Ruth Ponnie Tan 

Interior Designer 

One of the senior members and award-winning designers of the EightyTwo team, Ruth is passionate and known to be design-centric; her take on design is often bold and adventurous – pushing the envelope and breaking boundaries on cliché design principles. After spending years in fashion design, her love for interior and architecture has led her to complete her Diploma in Interior Design from NAFA, fulfilling her childhood dream to work and be part of the design team at EightyTwo. Ruth often steps out of her comfort zone, embodies the design challenges she faces, overcomes them with her personality – rewarding her clients with designs that are not just beautiful but also one-of-a-kind.

Alex Wee 

Project Manager 

As the team’s longest-serving member, Alex is a familiar face at EightyTwo, holding a BA in Business Management from RMIT. Throughout his extensive career, Alex shares his wealth of design implementations and technical expertise. He often prides himself in providing solutions and creative ideas, proving to be an asset to his clients and team. Starting as an Interior Designer, Alex has since moved on to a Project Manager role where expertise from an Interior Designer is much needed. To him, seeing the projects from start to end brings about immense satisfaction, witnessing designs taking form and transforming houses to homes.

Samuel Chin 

Project Manager 

Samuel graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, from NUS. While he initially explored a few different career paths, he eventually found himself back in the industry with a renewed purpose, helping to fulfil homeowners’ dreams with his skill set. Detailed, amiable and determined, he holds on to the ethos “God is in the details” coined by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, believing that it is the little things, the tiny minutia of detail, that ultimately make beautiful houses. Samuel looks forward to partaking in more award-winning projects.
