Rest assured For

Rest assured For Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong’s Entertainment Suite and Hyde Park’s main lobby, Wang focused on a reserved, relaxed opulence team start projects by looking for materials that are local and honest to the area, and they have noticed clients becoming more aware of the provenance of products, with some even stipulating a certain mileage radius for sourcing pieces. “It has become increasingly important in the last few years and, to be honest, we get better results thinking that way,” says Wang. “Shipping something from one end of the world to the other doesn’t necessitate a better solution.” So where does the future of luxury design lie? For Wang, having worked on so many city homes, hotels and urban restaurants, her focus is on people’s downtime and creating intimate spaces that rewrite the way we perceive luxury holiday experiences. Her dream project would be to design a resort or retreat, one that is in harmony with the natural landscape and breaks down boundaries both literally and figuratively. “Walls don’t have to be walls, they can be screens. Guests can bathe outside and everything should feel more open,” she enthuses. “I like the idea of thinking differently. The rules don’t apply.” That sounds like the perfect luxury project.
