Sir David Tang's Bejing Penthouse Suites

Dominic Crinson was recently commissioned by Sir David Tang to give Beijing his “cityscape” treatment for a series of Penthouse Suites overlooking the iconic Olympic “Bird’s Nest”.

Sir David also selected the Londonscape and the Newyorkscape for the suites. The designs were then transformed into a large tile murals which were installed in the luxurious penthouse ensuite bathrooms.

Sir David Tang was impressed by Dominic’s Londonscape mural seen on a tour of the Boundary Hotel by Sir Terence Conran and subsequently got in touch to work with Dominic on a series of Penthouse suites. Sir David being an avid collecter and designer himself had outfit an entire suite in the Boundary in his luxurious modern Chinoiserie style (view images).
