Interiors, Custom Furniture and Lighting, Branding and Collateral Design
A collaborative partnership with iconic Architect Shigeru Ban, Calypso is a vibrant and airy two story wine bar, restaurant and lounge and the crown jewel of the Jing An Shangri La Hotel property. The iconic outlet was partially inspired in form by its direct neighbor, and one of Shanghai’s most important historical venues—the former residence of Chairman Mao Zedong. Bamboo in its many iterations, light stone and glass create a distinctly modern experience while intimate detailing quietly references the strength and tradition of Chinese design.
