another tales has created the entire branding and interior design for madam wong, who are both passionate about the new shanghai culture. the interior intends to offer a glimpse into the past by resembling shanghai’s 1920s architectural constructions, yet with a contemporary twist. the concept can be seen throughout the particular motifs, such as the custom-made wall panels, fan displays, and terracotta warriors which greet patrons at the entrance.

the bar interior is characterized by the sumptuous material palette. red brick, dark leather and accents of metal finishes are combined to create a luxurious setting. red is also used as a central motif to bring warmth to the space and highlight the architecture. the bar is also split over two levels, offering moments of privacy. overall, the design of madam wong provides patrons with a very intimate space to sit back and relax.
