To celebrate the modern Chinese craftsmanship, Asia’s iconic luxury department store Lane Crawford brings three Chinese artisanal brands together, showcasing a special edit of furniture and home accents from X+Q, Shang Xia and The Fabrick Lab. From bamboo marquetry jewellery box and handwoven cushion to exquisitely crafted figurine, each piece embodies the modern aesthetics with the spirit of Chinese culture. From August to September, “The Makers” series invites customers to experience the finest in Chinese artisanal design at Lane Crawford ifc mall and Pacific Place home store. Join us over cocktails as we discover the intricacy of the production journey with the designers and brand representatives. 

 

X+Q


Founded by the renowned contemporary Chinese sculptors and artists Qu Guangci and Xiang Jing,
X+Q Art hopes to deliver a sincere wish of happiness, love and affection through their works. Each piece is completely handcrafted from beginning to end; the X+Q collections are made in limited quantities. Take a closer look at the soulful expression of Baby Bunny; it will make you pause and smile; while the “Ai Mei • Midsummer” can melt your heart with her angelic face. The “Ai Mei • Midsummer” series is Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts’ s first-of-its-kind collaboration with Chinese art collective X+Q Art. 

The initiative shares a passion for diversity, celebrating the unique sense of place of the Le Méridien hotels across Greater China. Each Midsummer girl represents a dynamic location of Le Méridien hotels in China with its own specially designed costume inspired by local places. 

“With its passion for culture, this collaboration is an ideal platform to share our inspirations and aspirations for art, bringing them to an audience that appreciates modern aesthetics and the emotions they evoke,” said Qu Guangci, co-founder, X+Q Art. “Our work with Le Méridien embodies our joint appreciation of different destinations and diverse local cultures, as well as the magic that lies behind the discovery of new places in greater depth.” 
 
The contemporary Chinese sculptor Qu Guangci will be joining the cocktail at Lane Crawford ifc mall on Aug 18 evening. Explore Qu’s sculpture language and his post-political expression techniques from the sculptures. He has an amazing ability to combine tradition and modern, culture and design, all at the right balance. A dedicated artisan from X+Q Art will demonstrate mold making process behind each unique collectible.


Shang Xia

 

Dedicated to the discovery of graceful living, Shanghai-based label Shang Xia, merges contemporary design and Chinese culture to create home accents. Bamboo is a part of many traditions and livelihoods. To preserve the natural beauty of bamboo, Shang Xia reinvents Zhejiang’s most remarkable handicraft: bamboo marquetry with modern technology. Inspired by the graceful lines of Ming Dynasty furniture, the ‘Twilight’ collection includes cherry wood jewellery boxes and round trays, inlaid with delicate carved bamboo. The created graphic lattice pattern is an innovation in the marquetry tradition, and Shang Xia logo is combined with the traditional sayagata pattern to form a unique, delicate yet durable design. This new collection continues to represent the flow of energy from the past, present and future. 

 

Discover the modern elegance of Twilight collection and the art of bamboo marquetry in store; Join the cocktail and experience the finest modern Chinese craftsmanship demonstration by the brand’s artisan on September 2 at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store.

 

The Fabrick Lab

 

Devoted to the search for experimental textile surfaces and materials for bespoke luxury environment, The Fabrick Lab expands the boundaries of textile, connecting local villagers in Guizhou in the Southern China to co-design lifestyle products. 

 

Known as the ‘techno fairy’ by Elle Deco and a materialologist, The Fabrick Lab designer and founder, Elaine Ng designed an efficient work model with them to achieve skill exchange and helped Guizhou weavers to create a sustainable way of living through making craft. Batik wooden stool, silk scarf and handwoven cushion are handcrafted pieces, using traditional tools with generations of experience. From extracting indigo dye from plants to creating a naturally water repellent cotton surface, the local villagers take every inspiration from nature. The Fabrick Lab treasures traditional Chinese culture and reinvents home accents with a sense of continuity. The production of hand-dyed batik wooden stool shows that batik making technique can be applied to hard surface, which Guizhou artisans have never done before. 

 

Explore the exquisite handmade crafts of The Fabrick Lab. Elaine will share her creative inspiration on the use of experimental materials at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store on September 16. Her work has been exhibited at museums like V&A in London and Textile Museum in Toronto; while her art and design research has been widely featured. Her distinctive design approach has proved inspirational to many.

LE BLANC MAISON

Sometimes the simplest things can have a profound impact on the senses, the body and the mind. Immersion into an all-white room can be almost transcendental. In such a space one can appreciate the subtle nuances of white from the reflective chill of Arctic white to the soft allure of ivory and the crisp appeal of a matt white glaze on a sculpted pot.


In our Pacific Place home store, we’ve been weighing up the beauty of white and in the spirit of discovery; we have created an all-white room devoted to objects, linens and furniture. Think of it as a fresh starting point, a blank canvas for lifestyle ideas. White proves itself far from predictable. It hints at perfection, otherness and uniqueness giving designers ample space to explore texture, silhouette and form.

 

 

Milky glazed dinnerware from Astier de Villatte looks wondrous; Jonathan Adler’s Dora Maar portrait vase mystical while Seletti’s white mice that double as lamps inject humour and a touch of the surreal. So you see, this powerful shade does not need to be cold or clinical and when used correctly, makes for a bold and beautiful finish. Our top tip? Choose furniture and soft furnishings carefully - go for pieces that will add dimension through textures and layers.


Now is the time to consider building one’s own white sanctuary. Worth contemplating, of that we can be sure.
