Project Name: Shangri-La Hotel privacy screen for a Chinese Official visit.
Location: The Rocks, Sydney.
Designer: HoB Commercial, Jennifer Snyders, BScArch.
Products Used: Natural bamboo poles.
Application: Privacy screen.
Story: The Shangri-La Hotel needed to create a temporary privacy screen that needed to be beautiful and in keeping with the hotel aesthetics whilst also representing a cultural reflection of the visiting parties. Bamboo poles were a perfect material as for Chinese people bamboo is a symbolisation of virtue. It reflects people’s soul and emotion. Bamboo poles were used to create a beautiful screen and as poles are lightweight yet “stronger than steel” it offered the perfect material.
