Ten out of the 50 finalist entries at this year’s INSIDE World Festival of Interiors are from China.
They include the waveform-inspired Coastal Private Club in Wuxi by One Plus Partnership (our story here), and Skytel in Chengdu by Panorama, a boutique hotel that straddles the realm of hospitality and art (our story here).
While there are no shortlisted works coming out of Hong Kong this year, Hong Kong did make a significant showing last year with Joyce Wang’s Mott 32 (story here) grabbing the top title of “World Interior of the Year”.
INSIDE features nine award categories: Bars & Restaurants; Civic, Culture & Transport; Creative Re-use; Display; Health & Education; Hotels; Offices; Residential; and Retail. It is also held alongside World Architecture Festival (WAF).
