AIRPORT LOUNGE INTERIOR
Changi Airport, Singapore
Paring Onions has successfully created a new brand for a new generation of airport lounge - Blossom is the first joint venture operation between the 2 international lounge operation giants, the Plaza Premium Group (HKG) and SATS (SIN). Paring Onions was engaged to design the brand identity and its DNA, and ultimately an interior which reflects the fast-changing culture of airport lounges. The world’s first Blossom is located in Terminal 4 of the award winning Singpore Changi Airport. The space is a combination of the main lounge and the island, overlooking the passengers’waiting area and boarding gates. The lounge comprises of a check-in reception, a dining area complete with self-serve and live-kitchen, business cabins, island bar, as well as a napping lounge when a more private environment is needed. The reception features a customized design portal constructed by Dutch designed ‘lace-fence’, extending a warm welcome and a transition between the terminal buzz into a tranquilized lounge. Furniture are all custom designed specifically for the brand. Walls are lined with hanging metallic cylinders mimicking the notion of a moving wind chime.
