SCENE SHANG brings their signature aesthetic to SHANG HOUSE while remaining sensitive to the context of the space: located in the Balestier Conservation Area that has a history in rattan manufacturing, this restored pre-war terrace house features custom-made SCENE SHANG furniture with rattan elements as well as special edition homeware and art that highlight the century-old facade of SHANG HOUSE.
SHANG HOUSE features their signature SHANG system, the award-winning customisable, modular storage system with elements reminiscent of Ming Dynasty design. As a nod to the history of rattan weaving in the Balestier area, the SHANG system in SHANG HOUSE is a special wicker edition, while the beds, hanging lights, and entrance screens that greet visitors at the door have also been customised to include rattan elements.
Paying attention to the finer details, SHANG HOUSE is also softly furnished with brass and marble as well as handcrafted porcelain vases made by Middle Kingdom kiln in Jingdezhen, China. Driven to revive and broaden Chinese porcelain traditions for a modern audience, their exquisite pieces are collected and sold at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Baltimore Museum of Art. The SCENE SHANG-Middle Kingdom kiln partnership is founded on the shared ethos of invigorating craftsmanship for a contemporary audience.
