Designed by Hong Kong-based firm  ID-entity Design, the Explorer Lounge launched by Jacada Travel showcases a collection of vintage interiors

Candace Campos, founder of ID-entity Design, took charge of the interior design for  luxury travel company Jacada Travel’s newly-launched Explorer Lounge at its Hong Kong office in Lyndhurst Terrace, Central.

Founded in 2008 by Alex Malcolm, Jacada Travel focuses on unique and bespoke itineraries for travellers seeking a truly personal travel experience. "It was important for us to create an environment that echos the countries that Jacada's customers will visit. The Explorer Lounge will be a space where customers can touch, feel, and experience the journeys they will soon take," explains Campos.

Around the lounge, traditional Khmer scarves from Cambodia, intricate hand-carved Maasai statues and iconic Maasai textiles from Tanzania, a shadow puppet from Vietnam, an African wooden handled fly swat made with real horse hair, a coffee table photography book from luxury safari company Singita, and natural beauty products from the Alila hotel group can be found.

The space is also decked out with vintage maps, interesting trinkets, comfortable plush seats, lighting fixtures by the French industrial designer Sergio Mouille, and hand-woven tapestries from the Jacada team's travels.

A pair of Kilin armchairs by the late Rio-born architect and designer Sergio Rodrigues also adorn the interior. With their leather sling-seats, they were chosen not only for their safari feel, but also crucially for their association with Rio de Janeiro – the city in which the concept for Jacada Travel was born.
