China 2012Shang Xia Beijing Store
This is the Beijing branch of the Shang Xia brand in the Hermes group that was created to reproduce traditional Chinese culture and craftsmanship in a contemporary manner.
Soft space that appears like it is covered with a cloud was created by stacking pieces of extruded aluminum. An aluminum screen with a depth of 60mm was made with three types of H-shaped members and two types of I-shaped members that have a minimum thickness of 4mm in order to create mysterious space that feels like a cloud. A subtle harmony is thus achieved between the industrial material called extruded aluminum and Shang Xia products where were inspired by Chinese traditions.
