Australian interior design firm Handelsmann + Khan is the collaborative efforts of Tania Handelsmann and Gillian Khaw. Handelsmann is a graduate of UNSW’s Architecture program with nearly twenty years of industry experience as the former Vice-President of BKH. Khaw’s career began in dealing antiques before studying Interior Design at the Design Centre Enmore, after which she spent years working in Europe, in Paris and then London at Anouska Hempel Design.
