Voon Wong studied at the National University of Singapore and the Architectural Association in London. After graduating, he worked in various practices in the UK and Singapore including the Office of Rick Mather and Zaha Hadid where he worked on the University of East Anglia project and the Vitra Fire Station project respectively before setting up VoonWong&BensonSaw in 1996 in London. Since then he has been heavily involved in both architectural and product design projects in the practice. Last year, alongside Michael Young, he is one of the judges at the Singapore Furniture Design Forum.

VoonWong&BensonSaw are a London based multi disciplinary design practice who began collaboration in September 2001. They draw upon their different backgrounds in architecture, engineering and product design to lend a unique perspective to furniture, lighting, product design, architecture and interior design. In their first year of collaboration, they won the OXO Peugeot Award for lighting. In 2003 their design, the Loop light, in production by Fontana Arte, was nominated for the prestigious Compasso D’Oro. Their exhibition at the Singapore Design Festival in November 2005 was an ambitious installation of their work under the title Confetti at the leading international furniture retailer Space Furniture. In April 2006 they presented their debut collection of bone china Lightcast during the Milan Furniture Fair. They are currently working on new building projects in Singapore, Beijing and London, as well as designing a collection of furniture for the company Air Division. To date over 80 completed architectural and interior design projects have been completed internationally by this practice.
