Yoko Choy – Hong Kong
China Editor of Wallpaper* magazine
Co-Founder of Collective Contemporist
Born in Hong Kong, China, Yoko Choy is the China Editor for Wallpaper* magazine (global edition). Her work to date has been published in more than 20 international titles, including Architectural Digest and Hong Kong Economic Journal. She is also a highly regarded communications consultant, whose clients include fair organisers, brands and creatives.
Yoko has worked for Art Basel on its launch in Hong Kong and curated exhibitions for Dover Street Market in Beijing. She managed Beijing Design Week‘s international communications activities and represented MARIOTESTINO+ in Asia.
Currently based in Hong Kong and Amsterdam, East-meets-West is more to her than just an alignment of two aesthetic visions. She is a multilingual and multicultural creative commentator and communicator.
Her mission is to translate the knowledge and insights from both worlds into a common creative language. Also to raise awareness of the importance of cross-cultural exchange in the creative industry and businesses.
To this end, Yoko co-founded Collective Contemporist in 2018, a creative consultancy to stimulate and inspire conversations and collaboration between the two spheres. She has offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Amsterdam
