The Langbo is the owner’s hotel brand upholding the concept of “gentleness, modesty and dignity”, whereas The Unbound Collection by Hyatt is established to deliver authentic experiences and distinctive lifestyle. The top priority of our design was to artfully integrate these two brands and create the uniqueness of the hotel.
Jade, a jewel and also a symbol of gentlemen in Chinese culture, is used as a design clue to lend the space the qualities of gentleness, modesty and reservation. In addition, the most representative local folk art - Sichuan Opera - is borrowed, together with Jade Culture, to express both the urban elite’s and fashion followers’ eclectic and upbeat attitude towards life and work.
Stretched or deformed, this is how the curved lines of facial makeup of Sichuan Opera are applied in the space to reinforce the mild vibe. Although complemented by gold to highlight dignity, black and white tones dominate the color palette to express the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang and Ziran (nature). The shape and texture of materials like wood, stone and metal are selected to echo the hard yet smooth trait of jade.
