James Koh is the founder and principal designer of 19sixtyseven, a commercial and residential interior design consultancy based in Singapore. He started his career in advertising with the likes of Saatchi & Saatchi and Bartle Bogel Hegarty.
After more than 17 years in the corporate world, James decided to take a leap of faith and established 19sixtyseven with business partner, Benny Loke. Since 2009, they have designed 3 landed properties, 9 private apartments, 1 HDB unit, and 1 corporate office.
When asked about his design philosophy, James says, “I like to design homes for people who want something different. We spend so much time at work, that when we come back home – it needs to be a place where we can kick back, relax, enjoy and de-stress.”
Their work has been featured in major design publications in Singapore such as Square Rooms and Home & Décor.
When James is not busy designing interior spaces, he is hard at work being the CEO of a boutique executive search firm specializing in the advertising, media and communications industry.
