about

Ann Tiukinhoy Pamintuan is a multi-awarded furniture, home accessories and jewelry designer.

With a design sensibility deeply rooted in respect for materials, confident shapes and
clean lines, and highly influenced by an Asian modernist aesthetic, Ann Pamintuan belongs
to a wave of Filipino designers with worldwide recognition.
Pamintuan’s serious work as an artist began with her experiments with roots, leaves
and flowers. She shaped these botanicals and gave them permanence by casting them in gold,
silver and copper. Without prior training or apprenticeship, she made her early works through
trial and error, building and tearing down, learning and relearning. The fusion of organic
material and metal brought about her jewelry line. From jewelry, she ventured into vases and
bowls, and naturally progressed to furniture and sculptures, for which she began to receive
both local and international recognition.
Today, Pamintuan is considered one of the pillars of the country’s design industry. A
pioneering member of the Movement 8 design alliance, she is the first Asian woman designer
to be included in the prestigoius International Design Yearbook.
