Aix Arome Cafe

This coffee bar and cafe situated in a Shenzhen theme park was designed to mimic the feel and colors of the ocean. A touch of space-age, the cashier is located in a silver and white orb while the seating is arranged in a sea of tonal blues and greens. Suspended from the ceiling are a random collection of blue rod lighting fixtures which are said to mimic the motion of the ocean’s ripples. While the materials of Corian, glass, stainless steel and timber provide a mix of textures, the appearance happens to remain smooth, almost calming, like the sea itself can be.

Golden Moon by Laboratory for Explorative

A remarkable modern derivative of a traditional Chinese lantern and homage to the burning love story of Chang’e the Moon Goddess of Immortality, this six-story incandescent public space structure is comprised of a computer-generated steel grid, bamboo, concrete and finally stretch fabric in fiery hues of red, orange and bordeaux. A sensational abstract flame, the sphere was installed upon a reflective pool in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park as a choreographed sound and light pavilion to be enjoyed by the public during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Butterfly Chair by Eduardo García Campos

A luxurious sculptural chair, the aesthetic is almost ethereal while taking on the appearance of a Monarch butterfly. The Butterfly Chairs, which are manufactured as one homogenous piece, are equally as stunning when placed individually or together, forming the silhouette of the Monarch. Materials include aluminum, plastic, carbon fiber and bronze and colors range the gamut of a rainbow, creating a versatile chair for indoor or outdoor living.
