2019 WIN Awards: Rippling Club - Shenzhen Horizon Space

Jessica Evans
10 Jun 2019

Rippling Club - Shenzhen Horizon Space is an entry in the Bars, restaurants, clubs and caf├ęs category at the 2019 World Interiors News Award.

This project was initiated by a team passionate about material and spiritual well-being. The word “rippling” causes us to think of those little waves when a wind blows making the water ripple.

As Tao Te Ching says, rippling water competes with nothing, yet embraces everything. That’s the best way of life.

With bionics in mind, Shenzhen Horizon Space make use of dripping water so there is no marked difference between the outer and interior space, between planes and solids - even the ID card adopts the form of a plane. The spatial-temporal aesthetics of oriental gardening is infused into the indoor space. When people walk around, they will be delighted as they see the different dimensions of space.

Upon entering, the arched corridor made up of roughly 1,800 tailor-made translucent glazed tiles. As more people pass through, the tiles will vibrate rhythmically. There are 15 well-designed steps, leading you to forget all the tumult outside and regain inner peace.

The central garden is named “Park of Bloom and Death” as it sees the full lifespan of crimson flowers. Life, like those flowers, is ephemeral, and therefore Rippling Club encourages people to cherish everything they have now.

The sunken ripple-shaped sofas were designed following the standards for a yacht, whilst people can relish a great view of the awe-inspiring Central Park in the CBD.
