“Searching for Pioneers” -the design dialogue with Vermilion Zhou


AD China “Searching for Pioneer”, A dialogue on "contemporary oriental aesthetics" lifestyle with Kuang Ming (Ray) Chou and Vera Chu, the founders of Vermilion Zhou Design Group, on the banks of Qiantang River in Hangzhou.

「While most designers are still discussing and exploring luxury design, Kuang Ming (Ray) Chou, Vera Chu and their team have the general public in mind, focusing on spatial solutions for budget hotels. Pioneering is "engagement in society", which is the design attitude advocated by Vermilion Zhou Design Group. They observed and examined the habits of Chinese people with anthropologist-like sensitivity and enthusiasm, refining the core of oriental aesthetics into the most common spatial scenes: from smell, touch, taste, hearing to vision in five dimensions, so that all guests can feel the greatest respect brought by the design.」

Evaluation from GOOD DESIGN AWARD:

This is a room where curves aligned with faint lines of light catch the eye. By using lots of soft curves in its planning separate areas are created without walls and partitions, which are seamlessly connected together while lines of sight and other signs are skillfully cut out. It’s designed so that the effect of the indirect lighting aligned with the curves create a sense of naturally guiding you inside. As a fitness space for maintaining a healthy and balanced body and mind, the room is not composed of strongly contrasting elements like straight lines and black and white colors, but rather the colors, materials and lighting are refined into a subdued, unified, gentle appearance, to create a comfortable and cozy room with little noise.
