Light As Air

Fairmont Singapore Even in a building designed by starchitect I.M. Pei, it’s what’s on the inside that truly counts. Guests to the newly renovated Fairmont Singapore will find locally influenced design elements at every turn, from the pop art above their headboards to the modern takes on traditional Peranakan pattern-work that adorn the brand new bar, Anti:dote. But the real showstopper greets guests the moment they step into the lobby. At an incredible 11 by 36 feet, “Playing with Wind” is equal parts sculpture and chandelier, made up of 800 crystal glass spheres hand-blown in the Czech Republic over three months. Lasvit designer Petra Řehořová says the piece was inspired by Singapore’s abundant green space: “It’s a place where the wind fans houses, trees and people, carrying with it the scents of spices, perfumes, even human feelings.”
