Hello, we are Hannah Liongoren & Wiji Lacsamana. Together we TOKWART SPACE INVASION! As we are both graphic designers and illustrators we thought it would be nice to put the skills we've acquired over the years to further use: that is, the beautification of dwelling spaces! We have been styling, decorating, creating murals and furniture for our lovely clients since 2006.
We're currently 95% done with 3 year old Benjamin's room! The client wanted the room to resonate his interest in airplanes but also wanted some elements of nature in the room. Trees, birds...and so we were thinking how to capture all that and then an imaginary lightbulb blinked above our little heads: The Little Prince! Perfect!
And so, here it is, some snippets of how the room is coming along so far. More better quality photos to be uploaded soon!
We tried to reflect our client's interests and curiousities in this whimsical bedroom project. True to the Tokwart tradition
, most, if not all items, are customized for her. The murals, a mixture of hand-painted and digital elements. One-of items like the pillows, plushies, wall acrylic backlit accent lights, accessory holders. The theme extends to the bathroom, too! No little nook left forgotten.
We've also collaborated with furniture designer Leo Sano on this one, where he created the main room lamp and the moon chair, where, as you'll see, we've come up with custom covers for it, too.

It all starts as soon as you put your foot on the spiral staircase towards the attic. We've installed customized stickers (all sturdy, we swear) on the steps--these make no sense when you're there but as soon as you reach the top step and look down, you'll see what the stickers where all about.
Then we hand-painted murals that extend to the ceiling, as well as silk-screened walls. No wall paper here! All literally hand made with love. :) We have lightboxes that only the client will have, as well as accent pieces that we've created ourselves. We want to limit purchasing finished items, we love creating and collaborating on them ourselves. Check out the tree shelf and beanbags by Supimi!
We collaborated with our good friend and furniture designer Leo Sano on the lounge chair. He designed the structure, we designed the fabric for it, which consists of lyrics from our client's favorite song. Leo also designed the beautiful ceiling lamp.
So much customization here. We've come up with both original prints and vintage shirts for Gabie Osorio--thus, one-of pieces for pillows.
