Crystal Orange Hotel


Crystal Orange Hotel Shanghai Pudong Lujiazui, a project by Vermilion Zhou Design Group

The texture of crystal comes from purity and penetration, without impurities. Under solid light, a crystal reflect the colors of a rainbow, with a gradually refined texture over its life that, when polished, is brilliant and lustrous.

The "Whiskey" theme of the Crystal Orange Hotel draws from those characteristics, like a polished gentleman leading guests into an exclusive club. Even after indulgence, guests will find themselves in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to relaxing.

Whether in its open or private spaces, a high level of quality is reflected in visible and touchable textures, infusing guests with positive vibes upon entering the hotel. The dazzling starlight of the infinity mirror box provides a sense of washing away external turmoil, invoking liberation and relaxation between the open and private areas.

By removing outdated spaces, refracting the light of crystals, and radiating new brilliance, Vermilion Zhou transformed the established conditions of the original building into more functional meanings. In the new version of Crystal Orange Hotel, the firm's design returns to the simplicity of essence and purity.

In terms of accommodations Vermilion Zhou's goal was to infuse the guest experience with high quality and practicality. Lighting guides guests into the hotel, where the transformational powers of different objects and spaces instantly disperse the pressures of a busy life. The accommodations experience of the new Crystal Orange Hotel can best be defined as luxurious, yet not extravagant, and essential, but not artificial. The refraction and dispersion of light seems to filter out noise and the effects of jet lag, providing guests with unparalleled tranquility and an opportunity to restore their luster.
