In a world were everything are always one step ahead today Design gallerist bring to you what do we think that could be the shopping mall of the future.
Neobio is making a name for itself in China’s hospitality scene. In its candy-coloured Shanghai restaurant, kids can run riot in the playground in full view of their dining parents. After crafting the brand’s first veritable wonderland of colour, pattern and form, designer Li Xiang of X+Living was called back for the second fantasy-filled instalment: Neobio Family Park in Hangzhou.
This time Xiang had 16 times more square meters, with which to play. The intention was to take advantage of Hangzhou Star Avenue’s steady stream of visitors to resolve the location’s typically low theme-park turnout in the offseason.
The developer cleared the mall’s 8,000-sq-m atrium prior to construction, allowing X+Living to redefine the area’s function from the ground up. Xiang says the result ‘explores the layout of shopping malls in the future.’
‘The project is a commodity, and whether people are willing to pay for a ticket to play depends on the overall feeling, including its sense of design.’
