. Marcos Cain
When Marcos Cain started off his career, he began by owning bars and restaurants in Sydney, Australia, which allowed him to develop an understanding of good design. He realised not only his passion for the field, but also his talent and vision. Cain sought opportunities in the Middle East and eventually set up Stickman with co-founder Karen Hay. Stickman has delivered projects worldwide from Hong-Kong to Dubai. While the company has been focusing on East Asia, it has created interiors in the Middle East including Inakaya restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in Abu Dhabi, which was shortlisted for the CID Interior Design of the Year: Food and Beverage Award, Fairmont hotel in Fujairah and French Patisserie Café in Doha.
