A little throwback post!
We have had the privilege of designing and building a few stores for Eu Yan Sang, and our design formula is based on “Representing the traditional foundation and current approach of Eu Yan Sang, we designed the shops with a modern oriental concept.
Inside the shop, one can fully appreciate the juxtaposition of the modern practical interior, combined with the nostalgic ambience of a traditional Chinese Pharmacy. As you venture deeper into the shops, the unique traditional Chinese Pharmacy furnishing seamlessly transforms back to present time with a clean modern look.”
You can see our work at Changi Aiport T1-T4, NEX, Paragon, ION Orchard, Chinatown Point, Lot One Shopper’s Mall, Bukit Panjang Plaza, Bugis Junction, Sun Plaza, MBS and many more!
In 1873, our founder Eu Kong left his hometown of Foshan in Guangdong, Southern China to seek his fortune in Malaya. Determined to free tin mine coolies from the clutches of opium’s suffering by dispensing quality Chinese medicine and herbs, Eu Kong set up our first shop in 1879 in Gopeng, Perak. This shop was named ‘Yan Sang’, which literally means ‘caring for mankind’ in Chinese.Eu Yan Sang
Eu Kong’s only son, Eu Tong Sen grew up dedicating himself to the family business and to realising his father’s goal. With determination and astute foresight, Eu Tong Sen established himself in Malaya and Singapore, and became a leading figure in tin mining and rubber plantation businesses by 1920s. Wherever he starts his tin mines, Eu Tong Sen would set up a medical shop to take care of his workers’ health and wellbeing. As he expands the medical shop beyond Gopeng, he decided to brand the medical business more firmly with the attachment of the family name, and his medical shops were named as Eu Yan Sang since then.Eu Yan Sang
We are very honored to be part of Eu Yan Sang’s journey as they keep their traditional alive in this modern world.
