“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.
