Yabu Pushelberg is an international design firm, with studios in Toronto and SoHo, New York, founded in 1980 by Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu. Focused teams of design and project management personnel specialize in interior, furniture and product design for the hospitality and retail industries. The firm also does residential projects.
George and Glenn‘s partneship is peerless, and their innate creative abilities have made them thought leaders in the design world. Dedicated to delivering the unexpected, they constantly shift visual paradigms with each completed project, the end result eliciting an emotional resonance in the user.
In, 1972, two Ontario natives were brought to Ryerson University in Toronto for reasons that can be loosely linked to kismet. The same stroke of fate brought them together a few years later, and would mark the start of an abiding partnership in business and in life.
More than three decades later, George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg oversee one of the recognized design firms in the world. The Yabu pushelber studios redefine how the world sees and experiences the built environment. The work is designed collectively; it is imaginative, thoughtful, and honest, while continuously moving between the rational and the intuitive. It is this interchangeability of their individual roles, that in unison, is distinctive.
Raised in Toronto, Canada, Yabu received his Bachelor of Applied Arts (Interior Design) from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute. Professional Accreditation includes the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). George Yabu oversees the creation and development of all design components for all projects in the studio. He provides conceptual leadership, as well as, reviewing and refining details of each project with the design teams.
