SHANGHAI: Airbnb x DongLiang – “Designers Home Project”

Airbnb has recently partnered with China’s leading fashion boutique DongLiang on “Designers Home Project”, for which seven Chinese designers are commissioned to travel to seven cities and record their trips with a Super 8 film camera. Coming back, the designers are asked to build 3 collaborative homes, each taking place inside Shanghai’s DongLiang store for a short period of time throughout June and July. The designers “homes” – “Rooftop Loft”, “Garden Glass House” and “Old Shanghai Villa” – drew inspiration from their travels and especially from their stay at Airbnb properties full of the characteristics of destinations including Milan, Iceland, Paris, Los Angeles, and Kyoto. First on display is “Rooftop Loft” from DongLiang co-founder/interior designer Nan Lang and fashion designer Renli Su which runs through June 20. The next is “Garden Glass House” from designers Angel Chen and Momo Wang, both famous for their playful and eclectic womenswear. The last collaboration – “Old Shanghai Villa” – will take over DongLiang, created by established designers Zhang Da and Uma Wang over July. Worth visiting if you are in Shanghai. –Maria Mao Cui
