Lady Bund shines the light on a new dining experience in the Chinese city of Shanghai. Designed by Thomas Dariel, the Asian-fusion restaurant is beautifully set on the 4th floor of Bund 22, a well-preserved building with more than 100-year history standing at the southern end of Zhongshan Road. Built in 1906 in the “Electric Architecture style,” Bund 22 is the only Century-old red-brick building on the bund, a new landmark standing out as an elegant lady in a red dress.
As the building itself harmoniously blends western architecture with Chinese culture, the owners wanted Lady Bund to be a worthy representative of East-West fusion. They therefore invited Thomas Dariel, Shanghai-based French designer, for his well-known talent to bridge and play with both cultures while being firmly contemporary.
Elements of Different Continents
Both Asian and European elements have influenced the Asian Fusion interior and the gastronomic concept. Beyond culture, Thomas Dariel also takes up the challenge to create a space with a strong identity that ought to be as vibrant and embezzling in two very distinctive contexts: lively and cozy restaurant in the daytime, intimate and fancy dining lounge during night.
The design team of Dariel Studio consisted of Julie Mathias, Andreea Batros, Caroline Magand.
Project Manager was Zoey Zhou.
