Cordis hotel by LTW Designworks, Hongqiao / Shanghai – China

December 25th, 2017 by retail design blog

LTW pays tribute to Old Shanghai with their design for Cordis Shanghai, Hongqiao. A throwback to 1920’s Shanghai, vintage street scenes are subtly articulated in the design through contemporary expressions. Examples include the backlit display boxes in the bar showing Shanghainese street scenes from the early 20th Century, and elegant etched glass murals with stylized Chinese women and cherry blossoms.

The hotel guestrooms exude a subtle yet sophisticated simplicity. Rooms and suites feature bespoke furniture and fittings in muted tones of white and grey. Textured silk wall panels feature traditional Chinese motifs that signify good fortune, with accent details such as oversized persimmon qipao buttons. In Ming Court, the hotel’s Chinese restaurant, vintage Shanghainese pin-up etchings along with bronzed metal and patterned glass screens create a quiet ambience that harks back to Shanghai’s Golden Age.
