Once again with the masterminds of Khun Phisit Jongnarangsin & Khun Saxit Pisalasupongs (the duo designers of the renowned Tube Gallery) at the helm of this year’s Christmas tree at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, ‘The Butterfly Effect’ will be the conversation piece you needed this festive season.
The tree, in-line with the Enchanted Forest theme of the hotel’s festive program, will feature 600 hand-made flowers, 200 metres of hand-sewn ruffles and comprised of 500hrs of construction to bring together the finished piece.
‘The butterfly effect is a change in our path than can create a big impact,’ said Mr Patrick Both, Cluster General Manager of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok and Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok hotels in Langsuan.
‘In many ways it is like the opening of the Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok; a change in perception of what luxury can be, and a different perspective of what it looks like through ‘that’ lense (luxury).’
Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok burst onto the Bangkok Luxury Hotel scene in October 2020, with design-led innuendo and embracing the Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants Hallmarks of: collaboration, diversity and inclusion, robust food and beverage programming, design in every sense of the term as well as the famed pet programming by Kimpton worldwide.
The much-photographed and critically acclaimed robes in every room, were a collaboration between Thailand’s Tube Gallery and the artist, Christian Develter, and the partnership continues with The Butterfly Effect, the incredible Christmas tree, is both thought evoking, but also a paramour of serenity.
‘The flowers have been purposefully selected,’ said Khun Saksit Pisalasupongs, one half of the Tube Gallery power duo design team behind the creation. ‘We wanted to show love, so we created roses. Lilies presented the notion of a new beginning,’ he said.
‘On top of that, butterfly wings and their symmetry embody peace, purity and innocence which is why we also included daisies and poppies in the design elements, the whole tree basically a nod to new and lively new year ahead of us,’ remarked Khun Phisit Jongnarangsin on the tree as a symbol of hope.
The extraordinary tree features 700 hand-made, life-size butterflies – truly owning the space as the Butterfly Effect #flutter.
