The Singapore Tat2 Convention 2010 held last month was a blast as we had fun making new friends and knowing more about their industry. One of them was the good people from Room 101. plussixfive had the opportunity to have a chat with Matt Booth, Founder of Room 101, as he shared with us his take on the industry, inspiration, and possible ventures into Singapore. Read the full interview below.
Is Room101 looking to expand its brand to Singapore?
We’re interested for sure. I think the quality and level of retail and presentation here is top notch, I mean on a global scale.
When you design your jewellery, where do you draw your inspiration from?
A lot of the inspirations behind my designs come from sculptures that I’ve seen from Japan and Noh Theatre (Traditional Japanese Theatre), masks, Buddhist deities and sculptures outside of temples. But you know, my executive collection is all geometric shapes, patterns, things like that. More contemporary, modern contemporary.
So do you do a lot of travelling to places like Japan and Thailand because of the Temples that they have?
I’ve seen temples in Thailand, but their sculptures are different. Every country kind of represents the same characters differently. And I definitely connect more with the Japanese representation.
