Lago by Julian Serrano, Shanghai

On the sixth floor of the iconic Bellagio Shanghai hotel, LAGO by Julian Serrano is a progressive dining experience featuring fashion-forward interiors, creative Italian cuisine and spectacular views of the Suzhou River. Conceived by Studio Munge, LAGO's avant-garde interiors juxtaposes Shanghai's historic Puxi district and infuses the luxurious hotel with an electrifying modernity. LAGO embodies Italian Futurismo; a sweeping artistic and cultural movement that focuses on forward-thinking dynamism and experimentation. Playfully manipulating the perception of time and space, the design invites guests to depart from the familiar and immerse themselves into the unexpected.

Guests are lead into a portal of modernity through LAGO's avant-garde interiors. Impactful features include a dynamic corridor shaped by dozens of crystalline fins in vibrant shades of blue that reflect on LAGO's sophisticated custom-cut marble floors in airy hues of white and blue. Smooth abstract ceiling panels gently overlap across the length of the ceiling, cascading down the restaurant walls accelerating the immersive experience. Through striking interior architecture and extensive custom furniture and finishes, LAGO propels Shanghai into the infinite potential of tomorrow.

"With a narrative based on Futurismo, it was impossible to imagine anything but custom. Our team of FF&E specialists and industrial designers went beyond to produce incredibly unique and dynamic pieces."
