Art Basel Hong Kong

Swire Properties has been sponsoring Art Basel Hong Kong since the show’s 2013 inaugural event. This iconic contemporary global art show is an important complement to the annual Hong Kong Art Month, when we bring internationally-inspired art and performance and original events to the public across the city; building on Swire Properties’ belief that art should be for everyone. The Art Basel programmes included the annual Swire Properties Dialogue Series, stimulating new ideas about art, architecture and design, with the world’s most distinguished influencers and leading artists.

“Red Flower” by Hugh Dutton
Swire Properties VIP Lounge

British architect Hugh Dutton created the Swire Properties Lounge at Art Basel Hong Kong, 2017. Emphasising natural light and organic materials, Dutton created a calm and elegant sanctuary featuring a symbolic, sculptural red flower ringed with floating ribbons and radial light-filtering petals. As the floating ribbons in the canopy cantilever towards each other they almost touch, creating a spatial tension that virtually encloses the space.
