One of T opens its doors to offer a unique array of distinctively Filipino art and home décor


Acclaimed designers Tony Gonzales and Tes Pasola recently launched One of T, the newest destination for home design in the south of Manila.

Located along bustling Daang Hari Road in Las Pinas City, One of T features an eclectic mix of furniture, home accents, and art - all of which are crafted to world-class standards by some of the country's best artisans. The showrooms occupy three floors of the five-story edifice, with the ground floor dedicated to furniture and furnishings, the second to artwork, and the third to unique lighting fixtures and accents crafted by indigenous communities.

Selections range from whimsical tableware to furniture that helps evoke a sense of peace and harmony to a home space; lighting fixtures that double as objets d'art; exquisite examples of tribal weaving and embroidery; and sculptures that are both aesthetically appealing and functional.

Through One of T, Gonzales and Pasola continue to uphold the emphasis on local materials and artists espoused by the design collective Movement 8. In doing so, the shop helps raise awareness about world-class Filipino craftsmanship and artistry for both domestic and overseas markets.
