Located in the iconic International Commerce Centre building (ICC), Sky Boss sits on the 101st floor, allowing guests the opportunity to truly dine amidst the clouds. Presenting Guangdong cuisine with a touch of contemporary fusion, the restaurant was designed as a unique setting where traditional Chinese design motifs exude unconventional elegance alongside Western minimalist aesthetics.
The design challenge for this one star Michelin Cantonese restaurant was to reinterpret the aesthetics of contemporary Shan Shui, where guests can appreciate the stunning urban landscape and taste local cuisine in thoughtfully prepared and spiritually fulfilling surroundings.
Traditional Chinese elements such as dainty bird cages and finely painted bird and floral motifs have been incorporated into the space. Traditional Chinese painting, comes alive on the screen partitions in the restaurant that are executed in bright colours.
A custom-molded wall resembling the famed lineage of skyscrapers contrasts against back-lit delicate Chinese paintings complete with familiar elements of mountains, waters and clouds. The light sculptures stretching across the ceiling including one in a traditional Chinese-style grid, simulating clouds in an abstract yet unexpected fashion.
