a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
IFC MALL PALACE CINEMA, SHANGHAI
Friday 11 Nov 2011
This cinema is inspired by 'sky and cloud'.
Sky gives the impression of freedom, and represents nature. To interpret the concept of clouds in the cinema, white was selected as the main colour which also reflects the theme of light in the movie world.
The large cloud shaped marble features in the lobby, corridor, box-office and concession and the custom made cloud shaped basins in the lavatories continue the theme throughout the project.
The floor is patterned with white and grey triangles and hexagons in marble, again to reference floating clouds. In the lavatories, the linear pattern of stainless steel finish the mirrors enhancing spaciousness and referencing the interplay of light and shadows in the movie world.
Adjustable ceiling lights at the snack counter imitate the professional light fixtures in movie studios.
