I was commissioned to design two arches for the main lobby at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Taipei a while back. The project was part of a two year hotel refurbishment, and the results were unveiled earlier this autumn.
I’ve only just been given this image showing both arches, so I thought I’d upload it and show it to you.
The brief started off as a request to design porcelain flowers for a ceiling, but money became an issue and we ended up with two arches instead. I only designed the molds; the actual porcelain flowers were produced at a pottery in China.
I wish someone would commission me to create a ceiling, though. Or a wall…! I would enjoy that.
