The architecture of the SHANG XIA Paris boutique is designed as a cloud-like space made of thin ceramic panels. Historically, ceramic has been a crucial element that forms Chinese culture. Chinese ceramic had also long been an object of admiration in Europe.
Six thousand thin ceramic panels are suspended from the ceiling to cover the entire space. The glossy white face, unique to ceramic, created a lighting state you might find in the pointillism paintings of the impressionistic art age.
