Renowned Chinese artist Li Hui has completed an original artwork to be displayed in the lobby of Le Meridien Taipei as part of Le Méridien’s award-winning Arrival Experience. Titled "Giraffe – Camouflage for the Industrial Era” the art work depicts a stainless steel giraffe lowering its head and resting. Hui’s use of stainless steel coupled with the sculpture’s placement symbolises the conflict between industrial civilisation and the environment.
