Sans Souci Lights Up Jeju Shinhwa World project in South Korea

Situated on the Jeju island, designated as a site of significance by UNESCO in 2010, the Jeju Shinhwa World project is one of South Korea’s largest integrated resorts spanning 2.5 million sqm. Working in cooperation with Wilsons Associates for their client, Resorts World, Sans Souci selected a palette of autumn colouring to natural shapes to accentuate the interior decor and to ensure a cohesive theme among their glass artworks.

Sans Souci's decorative lights are used to light up the voluminous open space at the entrance that encompasses the foyer, the lounge and the reception area.

The principal light of the project, Crystal Rain, imitates a gentle rain that appears to be showering the trees positioned below. Made of 2,900 handmade glass pieces, this installation does not only impress in size, but also by the contrasting effect of the transparent crystal, nano-coated and mother-of-pearl adorned components.

For the lounge, Sans Souci chose the spherical sshape. Forming three impressive glass globes, the handmade components in various shades of amber are complemented by those with a golden metallic finish to convey a luxurious sensation. The inspiration for this artwork originated in the image of a field of Canola flowers.

This design is made up of delicate objects evoking leaves fluttering in the autumn wind. Made of sandblasted glass with mother-of-pearl touches, each unique piece is deftly attached on wire strands so that the ensemble constitutes a wave. The resulting sculpture displays a dynamic quality, revitalising the two opposing reception areas
