Shang·Suo by Salone del Salon
Shang·Suo is a beautiful neo-Chinese club located in Guangzhou, designed by Salone del Salon.
The living space design was inspired by traditional Chinese water painting. We capture the Chinese elements and utilize the modern material and colors of western art. The main color is green from the Amazon forest with other material elements such as stone, glass tiles, and copper. Representing strength and agility, the building is surrounded by water, like floating in Eden. Nature and architecture grow seamlessly together. The sound of trees and leaves, whispering the beauty of the East. Is it about cross and matrix, or a sense of ceremony? Delicacy can not be absent, let the details show with a clear and slow rhythm. The light moves with the shadow, waiting for a meeting with beauty. The use of the scales decoration is telling us that time will leave it to mark when passes by. The copper can be refined in various states. Zhengtang Yong’s coppery artworks and installations are representing strength with a touch of flow. The color turquoise brings the darkroom a bit of a flexible mood. Balance is the ultimate beauty of tranquilization. A classic way for longevity. HAOstyle is a new way of modern life that coincides with the design language of the overall space. In the context of time aesthetics, the spiritual field of contemporary life is reconstructed with the eternal works created by durable copper.
Screen design was inspired by the movie shadow. The light and shadow were dealt with a sense of drama. The designer made whole wood customized furniture with accurate and delicate crafts for the owner to show the design perfectly. The wooden rafters cross the purlins to build the scenery, so the view is from the interior to the outside until the lake forms a line. The concise and elegant scenery carries the classical and modern Oriental elements in a fresh and quiet atmosphere. It is time to wander between the cracks of mottled and light, and enjoy the moment of tea tasting and listening to the cicadas. The Yun Long chair is inspired by the dragon pattern on the ancient bronzes and jade, meanwhile, the designer creates a contemporary design of the traditional Chinese ‘arm-chair’ to create a classic among the classics. To make a balance between regionality and internationality, symbolism and spirituality, and practicality and appreciation is necessary in design. The beauty of red is easily to make you lost yourself in this mood, and amazed by the image of vast territory of the motherland. The red and gold take the full of enthusiasm to the life, and the green depicts the imagine of rivers and mountains. The sense of comfort and ritual touch the inner feeling of us among the light and dark colored images.
Mountain as the main theme, we added in brass, metal and different stones colliding in the same space. Black and gold shows all the fashion. Screens and frescos, shadows and light create a mysterious space layer.The quintessential tones reflects the noble and elegance sense.
Looking for Oriental charm in western contemporary art, we combine ink and water into sloping tiles of terraces, forming the inspiration of creative elements of space soul — stairs. It is a question of using the stairs or climbing the cliff? No matter what, it is all about advancing to your own realm. The principle of mixed substances are reflected by using wood, glass, brick and copper. Delicate hand carving shows the elegance.The final touch of the colors allows people of different interpretations owing to their own circumstances. Their inner peace was able to be retained. Picturesque courtyard, charming yet elegant, a place to dwelling on the country dreams for the urbanites. Through the scenery, corridor, elegant stones, display, the oriental garden takes the modern people to a poetic wonderland to unburden and enjoy.
