Design Hotel in Hong Kong Combines an Old Legend with the Imaginative Interior Designs of Marcel Wanders and Hansgrohe Bathroom Fixtures
The Jade Rabbit has landed: a new design hotel in Hong Kong has made this creature from Chinese mythology the star of an artistic orchestration: red rabbits hanging from the ceiling, illuminated by crystal chandeliers, accompanied by a piglet that doubles as a side table. The Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, who the New York Times once named the “Lady Gaga of the Design World”, is behind the hotel’s imaginative interior design. In the Hotel Mira Moon, he combined themes taken from the tale of the Moon Goddess and her Jade Rabbit with traditional craftsmanship and modern elements. Fitting this mix of styles, fixtures from the Axor Urquiola collection complement the modern bathrooms.
It was no coincidence that a sensual bathroom collection from Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe SE, was selected for the configuration of the hotel’s bathrooms. The fixtures designed by Patricia Urquiola appear as though they were naturally grown, with soft shapes transcending into wide surfaces and melting with the remaining bathroom décor to create a harmonious ensemble. In the marble bathrooms of the Mira Moon, the stand-alone Axor Urquiola bath tub mixer is combined at the wash basin with Hansgrohe Metris fixtures. The high spout of the mixer provides additional space, while the calm design language is discreetly integrated into the sensual ambience. In this way, the bathroom fixtures from the Black Forest make a substantial contribution to the comfort, convenience and design sophistication of the Mira Moon.
