Zann, Interior Designer, Shirt from Zara, Bracelets from Fossil and Shanghai.
Zann describes his morning routine as something that goes like this: “Panic, shower, pack my bag, panic, leave the house.” It’s a good thing then, that he usually sticks to basics when it comes to looking work-appropriate, no mean feat when he has to look both presentable enough to meet clients, and comfortable enough to go to construction sites should the need arise. A stickler for good design, Zann counts Japanese brands such as Muji and Uniqlo as his favourites when it comes to good workwear. “Their shirts are comfortable, and breathe well,” he says. Zann’s favourite part of his job, he says, is the fact that he gets to design things from scratch, and gets to see the process of it being built. Zann does Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on the side, and reveals perhaps the one secret superpower he has that helps him along his work: “I remember almost everything, like an elephant — from when I was 4 months old,” he says. “I pretty much have a photographic memory, but it comes in random flashbacks of which I have no control over. It’s a lot of brain noise and fuzz.”
