LUCY LIU

> AUSTRALIA | MELBOURNE 2015

Lucy Liu is solid brick and soaring timber, textured concrete and smooth steel. She includes with pools of light and intrigues with shadowplay. Down a lane, up an alley, through a back door, she beckons with red neon.

In an old room which has seen many outfits, we’ve shed layers revealingly, brushing up the skins beneath. We’ve added layers which make the most of the high ceilings, making timbers fold past each other, opening up the space and creating pockets of intimacy.

Lucy calls many places home. Just as her food criss-crosses Asia, her timbers recall bamboo scaffolding in Hong Kong and Shanghai and there are memories of Tokyo’s Imperial Hotel in her bricks and overlapped corners.
