On the 18th of August, Atap.co soft-launched the Atap Elite Club to its pioneering members, a group of over 50 new and seasoned interior designers who all gathered at Signature Flagship Store, Kota Damansara, to witness the start of a budding creative community. Hosted by Atap.co, the event was sponsored by TOTO, Treo Merino, Tachitica, and VS Staircase Specialist. Alongside us, these brands believe that ideas grow and flourish through human interactions. By building this community, we hope to create trusting and meaningful relationships within the interior design industry. The human interactions once halted by the pandemic will now blossom under the community we wish to continue strengthening.

The Atap Elite Club isn’t niche or exclusive; instead, it aims to build an accepting, encouraging, and all-around supportive design community. Atap.co’s co-founder, Seow Yaohan, said it best, “we feel the ID (interior design) community’s pressing need for more human interaction and connection. We want to create room for serendipity, for goodwill, conversations, laughter, and ideas to flow.” This is the notion behind the formation of AEC, which ultimately serves to create a foundation for collaboration, ideas, and shared visions.

Becoming a member of AEC is a relatively simple process; the only requirement is that interior designers have a subscription to any of Atap.co’s current branding programs. This entitles interior designers to be automatically enrolled into the Atap Elite Club. To further expand the community, every year, each member of AEC is given the opportunity to nominate two individuals from the interior design industry to become members at zero cost! By doing so, we hope to unite like-minded people who believe in our cause and are committed to advancing and elevating the design industry together as a community.

With membership to AEC, interior designers will receive access to exclusive events hosted by Atap.co and other brand partners, like product launches, private openings, lifestyle functions, and even invites to regional and overseas corporate events. Aside from that, members also enjoy priority access to home and living brand collaborations, community-building activities, and creative projects. Interior designers can benefit from AEC as the club will serve as a pedestal to help expand and create business opportunities while propelling your brand’s visibility.

The Atap Elite Club intends to help build a collective culture that will further catapult new and seasoned interior designers to greater heights. It is Atap.co’s core mission to leave a positive lasting impact on the interior design scene while we continue to help interior designers thrive and command attention locally, regionally, and internationally.
