The whole may be greater than the sum of its parts—but what parts!

The whole may be greater than the sum of its parts— but what parts!

1. golden touch: Wynn’s de­sign­ers opted for hand­made gold wall­cov­er­ings over gold leaf to give the qua­tre­foil ceil­ing de­tail in the Sa­lon Suite Liv­ing Room its warm, op­u­lent tone and elim­i­nate re­flec­tions of the light source. 2. please en­ter: Koi fish tiebacks at the en­trance of Wing Lei Palace were sketched in-house at Wynn De­sign & De­vel­op­ment, then sculpted by Dream­catch­ers in Hong Kong. Draperies were hand-em­broi­dered and pea­cock feath­ers hand over­lain. The glim­mer­ing capiz shell wall is lain in a fish­scale pat­tern, and lay­ered with capiz flo­ral mo­tifs. 3. what’s up: The chan­de­lier at Wing Lei Bar is a rare an­tique Ital­ian rock crys­tal piece rem­i­nis­cent of Louis XV de­signs. It’s left unwired and re­flects am­bi­ent light­ing. 4. we’ve got your back: The green and gold cus­tom de­signs of each chair­back in Wing Lei Palace were de­signed in-house and metic­u­lously hand-em­broi­dered.

In­side se­crets: In Pa­cific Cigar, a se­ries of se­cret doors con­ceals hu­mi­dor rooms and in­vi­ta­tion-only lounge ar­eas.

5. curves ahead: The curved metal and glass en­trance to Pa­cific Cigar is in­spired by one of Man­hat­tan’s most pres­ti­gious en­try­ways—the ladies’ shop at Bergdorf Good­man and its pi­lasters, it­self in­spired by the great coun­cil cham­bers of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice. Se­cret doors within clev­erly con­ceal in­vi­ta­tiononly lounge ar­eas and hu­mi­dors. 6. light fan­tas­tic: One of the great pieces of the Royal Pav­il­ion at Brighton in­spired this cus­tom chan­de­lier that graces the Gar­den and Pent­house vil­las, also tak­ing cues from 1920s Art Deco. The orig­i­nal de­sign’s in­di­vid­ual petals are metal framed and hand strung with rows of crys­tal beads. 7. wall power: The de­sign of a wall in Mizumi’s Pri­vate Din­ing Rooms is based on Ja­panese Tansu chests— tra­di­tional mo­bile stor­age chests for highly prized items—each one in­tri­cately fit­ted into the next. 8. pro­saic mo­saic: A hand-cut Ital­ian mo­saic rosette on the front of a bath­tub in a Sa­lon Suite con­ceals an ac­cess panel to the bath, beau­ti­fully in keep­ing with the Wynn ethos of pair­ing func­tion­al­ity with el­e­gance.
