Our Chief Panda Officer, always near the genesis of an inspired idea (or cocktail), often recalls Marcel Proust’s wit for answering Victorian parlor game questions. Pixel has traveled far from the salons of Paris, but her interest remains piqued in which questions truly reflect a person’s character. Packing just the right amount of punch, NJI created The Pixel Questionnaire to give a glimpse into the inner workings of some of our most intriguing minds.
Ever mindful of her interview subject, Pixel chose the Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat for her imagined interview with Senior Production Designer Anastasia Chu. Relaxed with coconut shakes in hand, she embarked on discovering what makes this Singapore-based designer tick.
