Through the shining glass…

Through the shining glass…

Flowers growing from the ceiling in a forest of pink baldachins under a sky shining with diamonds…. Have you ever felt like Alice discovering Wonderland? You will in the Manila Bay Resort Okada!

Concept

Why settle for the boring and mundane when you can go wild with your imagination? Walking through the entrance, the corridors, and even the main gaming area can feel like walking through an exciting world made out of glass and light.

The story behind the light

Designer Štěpán Gudev wanted to capture the wild beauty of nature in elegant shapes with mathematical precision.

The Inspiration

Glass waterfalls are filling the VIP entrance with exceptional beauty overflowing with abundance throughout the hall. „Water is a precious matter and I thought about the installation as waterfalls pouring with wealth, happiness and perhaps with some luck and good fortune for the visitors,“ says the young Czech designer.

Installation

The Okada project is quite complex, so the installation had to be divided into several phases. It started off with the chandeliers for the hotel entrance.

Overall feeling

Once you set foot in the Okada Manila - the place of wonders - the atmosphere will impress you. You were a different person before you stepped inside. Aren´t you feeling “curiouser and curiouser” already?

For me, design ends where emotions dry up. I want my products to tell a story.

I search for inspiration in nature and its morphology. My work has an abstract form which opens space for imagination, and functions as a window into our interior, into our subcounscious.
