Muza Lab is an award-winning design practice founded by Inge Moore and Nathan Hutchins to create exceptional interior designs inspired by their heartfelt passion for discovering the legends, culture, colour and crafts that make every location special.
With a global outlook and a dedication to craft and storytelling, the team infuses each project with thoughtfulness and meaning, shaping experiences that are full of magic.
Muza’s transformation of South America’s first luxury sleeper train, Belmond Andean Explorer in Peru, was recently presented with the Judges’ So Cool award at the Gold Key Awards Gala in New York, whilst their renovation of Belmond Eagle Island Lodge in Botswana was chosen as the overall victor in the Lodges & Tented Camps category at AHEAD MEA.
Other current and recent work includes several Belmond projects: Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro; two Afloat in France barges; Eagle Island Lodge, Botswana; and Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town. Additional major projects include Kanuhura Resort, Maldives; Rocco Forte, Shanghai; Four Seasons, Kingdom Tower, Jeddah; Ananda resort, Goa; KAEC Royal Greens Golf & Country Club; and Grosvenor House.

With an instinctive eye for beauty and visual harmony, and with tastes honed by global travel and informed by family values, Inge instinctively designs places which make people feel elegant and cherished. She likes to start her work with a story that draws on the history of each building and the natural world of its location, developing a construct to inspire the team and help shape the design down to every last detail. An interior designed by Inge is full of discovery, sensuality and fun. Her work delights in hand-crafted, individually tailored and ingeniously re-interpreted elements.
Inge’s projects have won wide international acclaim, most recently in the Conde Nast Traveller Hot List as well as the AHEAD awards, and she herself was recognised as Gold Key Designer of the Year in 2013.

Fascinated by the soul of buildings from an early age, Nathan’s architectural studies, as well as his career as an interior designer, took him around the globe before he came to London over a decade ago. Here, inspired by the world’s cultural cross-current and energised by his travels, he was soon translating his acute understanding of contemporary luxury into exceptional projects. Nathan believes in quiet luxury with its ageless quality, authentic values and power of discovery, and he is exacting in his pursuit of this in all his work.
Nathan’s award-winning work includes The Alpina Gstaad, Switzerland, as well as ESPAs in Macau, Hong Kong and the Istanbul Edition.
