Although Dr. Bien Po does not have any formal training in interior design, he was able to furnish and decorate his bachelor pad well. In order to make the 46.5sqm space more interesting, he opted for a modern contemporary look with industrial touches. He paired the exposed beams and bare cement walls with black-and-white furniture and accessories.

If you love the cool style of his condo as much as we do, here are 10 pieces worth a second look.
