Being committed to craftsmanship, Decca offers consummate skills and a refined quality to its products, as well as demonstrating it's pursuit of “Quality Living”to the world. For these reasons Suning Group chose Decca as their partner to produce the furniture for their hotel - Bellagio Shanghai.
Bellagio Shanghai’s Chinese name –“宝丽嘉”means preciousness, beauty and luxury. Its brand logo is also as exquisite as jewellery. Bellagio is a beautiful small town located in the central area of Lake Como in Northern Italy, which is a Y-shaped, long and slender lake formed by Alpine glacial erosion. Bellagio Las Vegas opened in 1998 has established the qualities of kindness, permanence, delicacy and excellence as the brand standards of Bellagio. By building a paradise on earth as beautiful as Bellagio Town on the shores of Lake Como, it has made a perfect interpretation of their brand essence -“Nothing Short of Unforgettable”.
Using a modern interpretation of Art Deco which had heralded boom times, the design narrative has been heavily influenced by the historical neighbourhood of The Bund district. In keeping with the surrounding historical architecture the design utilizes a neoclassical scheme that references the legacy of Shanghai’s colonial past.
The design for Bellagio Shanghai Bund is expressed through the lens of couture fashion, with reinterpreted silhouettes, textures and embellishments which pays homage to the glamour and optimism of the Art Deco era. The decadent lobby with impressive grand staircase and a colour palette of dramatic creams and blacks are accented stylishly with champagne and emerald fabrics.
Room categories at the 162-key hotel starts from deluxe, with a minimum size of 60 square meters, while all suites at a 100 square meters are tended by personal butlers. Some rooms and suites boast stylish, private terraces, as spacious as 90 square meters, from which the spectacular view of the vibrant Lujiazui skyline can be appreciated without obstruction. A 400-square-meter Presidential Suite, with its very own home theatre, marks the pinnacle of class and sophistication.
Built on the success of the Las Vegas hotel, which is the most recognizable with its fancy lobby ceiling, a world’s largest chocolate fountain, as well as a marvellous dancing water fountain in front of the hotel, Bellagio Shanghai aims to grab a decent share of the city’s highly competitive luxury hotel market with its “Nothing Short of Unforgettable” guest experience, an all-time belief by the brand.
Unlike its mega-size sister hotel in Vegas, the passionate culinary team at Bellagio Shanghai is dedicated to providing guests with tasteful and innovative dining experience at its four distinctive F&B outlets, among which LAGO by Julian Serrano stands out as an indisputable highlight.
Located at a fully restored 1920s heritage building, the hotel’s Chinese restaurant — Mansion on One — pays sincere homage to Shanghai’s legacy. Authentic and classic Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine are served to pamper guests’ discerning taste buds, while 11 private dining rooms with their own distinct colour and decoration style help evoke nostalgic memories of old Shanghai in its golden days.
A throwback to Las Vegas, Cafe Bellagio is designed to recreate the traditional American diner experience with modern sensibilities. Its contemporary art deco and seasonal menu make it a perfect venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Bellagio Shanghai is the second Bellagio hotel in the world. Therefore, Suning Group has devoted a great endeavour to Bellagio’s first show in China and even in Asia. Bellagio Shanghai invited WATG, an American design company famous as “the Dream Factory in Architecture” to lead the design work, who successfully combined the Art Deco style with neoclassicism of the Bund in the design. In addition, the interior decoration was completed by Wimberly Interiors, one of the top 10 interior design companies in the world. Thanks to its exceptional design, Bellagio Shanghai has become a super luxury palace.
The Lounge, in the lobby, is the place where the Bellagio signature afternoon tea is served. Filled with an elegant and cosy ambience, it is ideal for both informal business meetings and light-hearted social gatherings.
DECCA provided about 1500 pieces of furniture, each of which could be compared to a piece of artwork, for the lobby, the lounge, Café Bellagio, Mansion on One and LAGO by Julian Serrano in Bellagio Shanghai. DECCA has assisted to guarantee the luxury quality of service facilities in the hotel and its efficiency to complete the project in just several months has also offered a great help to the successful opening of the hotel.
DECCA has received great compliments from both the design companies and Suning Group. From making samples at the early stage, to verifying site dimensions, modifying drawings, offering expert advice, and thoughtful logistics, DECCA has performed excellently during the whole process.
DECCA and the designers of Bellagio Shanghai share the same pursuit of perfection, though in different fields. OZ, the designer in chief of WATG, and NANA, the designer of the interior decoration always strive for excellence, which is really admirable.
The designers have visited the factory to review samples and offered a lot of advice on making modifications. With a respect for the design concept of each designer, DECCA always provided the best in materials management, colour matching and workmanship to realise those perfect designs.
