In his collaboration with Yoo, Marcel Wanders’ interior design for this hotel property takes as its starting point the Moon Festival fairy-tale, a legend in Chinese mythology about the Moon Goddess of Immortality.

Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel has made it his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” His work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain.

Updating this tale to suit a contemporary setting, the characters from the story are represented throughout the spaces and references to traditional Chinese culture are expressed through modern furnishings with antique Chinese fabrics and prints, peony flower wall details, tailored carpets, digitally composed Bisazza tile graphics and a ‘lucky charm’ feature wall in the lobby.

Inspiration for the interior was also taken from traditional Chinese craftsmanship. Ceramics, carved timber and cut crystal are used throughout, creating a heady cultural mix which is made relevant today with a warm colour palette of orange, brown and light green. This combination of heritage with modern artistic expression is a hallmark of Marcel’s work; an approach which has given Mira Moon one of the most distinctive, vibrant hotel interiors in the region.
