Inspiration for the Wuxi Hotel was neogothic, the main theme of the Visionnaire concept from the start. The pivotal feature is the lobby - the image evoked is that of the nave of a gothic cathedral. A series of bronzed steel pipes form the lancet arches and ribbed vaults of the nave. Walls are covered by a bronze/gold steel mesh that celebrates the luxury theme. An large desk in warm colored marble supports two witty oversized interpretations of the iconic Visionnaire Egg lamp.
