Raised in the furniture workshops of the business pioneered by her parents, Stephanie Kienle Gonzalez discovered a natural aptitude for interior design early on, fine-tuning her attention to quality and detail. Her definitive fashion sense and Filipino-Swiss heritage translate into a deep aesthetic appreciation, which is expressed in her dedication to her craft.
Together with her sister, Jessica, she is at the helm of Philux, the homegrown furniture and lifestyle brand that champions Filipino craftsmanship. One of Philux’s projects is the design of Louis Vuitton’s Manila flagship store.
Stephanie also co-hosts Metro Home, the award-winning Philippine lifestyle show on the Metro Channel in the Philippines.
Passionate about living an environmentally conscious and purposeful life, she supports her advocacies on conservation through the World Wildlife Fund’s Next Generation Council and is on the board of trustees for Habitat for Humanity.
She lives in Manila with her husband and their three daughters.
