The luxury Hong Kong hotel celebrates its 10th anniversary with new rooms designed by Joyce Wang.
16 December, 2015
Joyce Wang has redesigned the rooms at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, bringing warmth, drama and thoughtfulness to the hotel. “Our concept was to create rooms that felt considered and special,” says Joyce Wang, founder of the studio.

The studio’s careful, deliberate approach to design is visible in everything from the brass finishings on the custom-made furniture to the mix of tactile materials, including hand-tufted carpets that feature a glimmer of metal running through them. For Wang, each element must have its purpose, and its story: textured materials inspired by crocodile, shagreen, lizard and ostrich reference high-end fashion accessories – in turn a reference to the hotel’s position at the centre of Hong Kong’s hub of luxury stores.

The use of sensual materials contributes to the welcoming feel that emanates from each room; as does the use of warm, rose, mushroom and olive tones and brass touches. “Located in the heart of the city, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong attracts the most discerning international travellers. These guests expect a high level of privacy, residential-style comfort and uncompromising quality,” explains Wang.
Sweeping curves and bold lines give the rooms their theatrical quality
The Hong Kong-born designer’s love of cinema also comes through at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. There’s a certain theatricality to these rooms – something that materialises in the sweeping curves of the sofa and armchairs in each room, contrasting with the sharply angular lines of the desk and table. It’s also apparent in the playful take on the minibar: snacks by the hotel’s Culinary Director, Chef Richard Ekkebus, are housed in a crystal vitrine that’s on display, rather than tucked out of sight in a cabinet.
