Danny Cheng interiors employs organic curves to evoke an inspiring aesthetic befitting a high-end property developer | 室內設計公司Danny Cheng interiors運用天然曲線為一高級房地產商編寫精彩美學
First impressions definitely count. That’s why, when Dongguan-based property developer Central Times was looking to update its office space, it turned to Danny Cheng Interiors to help conceive an aesthetic that corresponded to its upmarket offerings. Indeed, the striking, sinuous design and inspiring use of expressive arcs evoke a simple yet refined elegance – one that passers-by and visitors alike have come to associate with the high-end real estate brand.
The starting point for designer Danny Cheng, the visionary behind this particular project, was the reflective pool that encircles the property. "There’s a pond outside the building, so I decided to use water as the theme," he explains. "The waves on the ceiling, curved screens, S-shaped benches – they’re all art installations. They complement each other and connect to the space."
Danny notes that in our era of globalism and hegemony, it’s now more important than ever to design with the character and style of the client in mind, and to retain a timeless spirit of individualism that sets the brand apart. "We hope everyone who visits the building will be aware of the thought that’s gone into it," he says. "By choosing an art museum-style space
第一印象永遠教人難忘。這也是東莞物業發展商卓越為辦公空間換上新面貌的初衷，更請來Danny Cheng Interiors幫忙，構想出能回應公司提供高級業務形象的美學設計。最後成功開出帶矚目彎形線條的風格，更活用引發豐富靈感的弧形元素，油然散放簡約而精緻的雅致氣質，不管是過路人還是訪客也深深感受到當中設計與此高級房地產商的緊密連繫。
to introduce the properties to visitors, we hope that they enjoy our design as much as they enjoy the flats, which are carefully built by the developer. From the very beginning, from the interior design to the show flats and high-end properties, there’s a continuity of elegance and quality of life."
Of course, for the office to be considered a success it has to be judged on form as well as function, and Danny and his team have also triumphed in presenting style with substance. Sweeping, sculptural stainless-steel screens keep the space open and fluid, while at the same time offering privacy for those in the lounge area. Furnishings throughout echo the contours of the greater structure, with only the architectural models introducing an angular rigidity to the interiors – a smart move that in turn allows them to stand out even more.
To devise this spectacular environment, Danny didn’t immediately turn to traditionally luxe components, explaining instead that he prefers to employ simplicity and modesty in
his designs. "In my opinion – luxurious or not – materials are merely the tools to create an elegant atmosphere," he says. "The importance of interior design is not only to create something special and good-looking, but to decide which elements to put together to bring consistency and elegance. That’s why I pay attention to every single detail. It looks simple, but the process behind it wasn’t. In addition to the visual aesthetics, we also care about how people feel about the space. We want them to feel a sense of elegance." //
