THE PINK CHANDELIER
Inspired by stage performances, interior designer Peter Remedios created the star of our lobby lounge: An elegant chandelier, comprising 127 lamps.
When night falls, it comes to life in the most spellbinding manner. The chandelier glows in ab88kai's iconic pink colour — immersing the lobby in a dreamy, relaxed atmosphere.
DESIGN OF LOBBY COLUMNS
In the Han Dynasty, horses are considered a key symbol as they represent power and majesty. And in our lobby, you'll find beautiful motifs of Fei Ma, or flying horses, delicately laser-cut into the bronze columns — emulating a mystical pattern that looks like bark on a tree.
In the world of Chinese contemporary art, Qu Guangci is one of the most prolific sculpture artists. His works consist of large figures that wear Mao suits, or even imitate the gestures of classic Western figurative sculptures — teasing the absurdity of society, politics, history and art.
THE MOUNTAIN TOP
This abstract landscape painting depicts a sea of clouds — a scene one would normally see at the top of a mountain. But from the colourful sea emerges the artwork's only sharp detail: A cluster of grass, dancing in the wind.
Crafted by Sui Jianguo, “Discobole” is a uniquely “Chinese” imitation of Discobolus — a Greek sculpture of a man throwing a discus. The main difference is that this discus thrower is wearing an iconic Mao suit.
