Unveiling the art pieces of more than 20 exciting artists, Hotel sáv is the first hotel in Hong Kong to layer arts and culture with charity, in a pioneering campaign for guests booking rooms.
The hotel’s 22nd floor hosts the “The Gallery – Floor of Love” where guest rooms and corridor feature the art pieces of over 20 inspirational artists and creative talents from Hong Kong, Macau, China, Taiwan, Canada, Hollywood and South Africa. Among the lineup of names are home-grown talents such as Prudence Mak, whose Chocolate Rain character was born in Hong Kong and has become recognizable across the world. Mak’s distinctive character Fatina will feature in art works hung in the room, alongside themed stationary and mugs, and dolls etc.
Sim Chan, a “40 Under 40” Young Talent awarded by Perspective Magazine, has created a large painting of cityscape and a kite, developed from an idea of a narrow view of blue sky among high-rise buildings in a city for the Floor of Love Campaign.
Also awarded “40 Under 40” Young Talent, Hong Kong born Sarah Tse, whose delicate pencil and paper art has been exhibited in Tokyo, London and New York, and Charmaine Ho, the daughter of Edmund Ho, the former Chief Executive of Macau, is the Founder of Me Char Handbags, a New York based designer handbags brand. The designer’s lines of leather bags and accessories become art pieces on display as her room’s core design element.
La Carmina, one of the best-known names in the blogging world, joins hands with illustrator Naomi Rubin to combine talents for the venture, showing various pieces inspired by their travels in Hong Kong. Beijing’s E. Herder and South Africa’s Janine Claase are also among the list of international artists showing their creations in the rooms.
Other participating artists include modern photographer Pei-Hung Hsu, “Hollywood Hunk” artist Maxime Jacquet, multimedia visual artist Ringo Tang, drawing and installation artist Wu Yiqiang, installation artist Carl Cheng, interior designer and street artist Gustav Szabo.
Showcase pieces include sketches, photography, drawn works and handicrafts, inspired by four themes: Love the Planet, Love the Community, Love the Dream and Love the Memory.
Hotel sáv pioneers a new hospitality concept with the opening of the art-centric floor, layering arts and culture with a good cause. Two beneficiaries, Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) and Make-A-Wish Hong Kong will receive 15 per cent of revenue made from room bookings on “The Gallery – Floor of Love”. ADAHK also features 14 creations from 8 artists with disabilities along the corridor of 22nd floor to advocate an inclusive society through arts.
