The interior design of Dining Room at Park Hyatt Shanghai is meant to evoke a private residence (if, say, you lived on the 87th floor of one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers). When you enter the first floor of the hotel, you have to walk through several small, quiet rooms displaying modern Chinese artworks before coming to the rocket-ship fast elevators that shoot you up to the 87th floor. Once inside the restaurant, you’re greeted with soaring ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows with jaw-dropping views and fine fabrics and textures in earth tones. It’s an attention-grabbing but not ostentatious or flashy scene; the quality and heritage of the materials gives the space an understated elegance. Benches are upholstered in horsehair fabric, while a back wall is covered in stingray skin.
