Ace Hotel London x Bonsai Christmas Tree

/ / Projects


Ace Hotel London commissioned us to create a unique Christmas tree whereby we presented a handmade Japanese alive moss-covered cabinet in shape of Christmas tree titled “Bonsai/Christmas Everywhere”.

The interior, which had two chambers, was made up of an internal maze of LED lights and mirrors to depict two Bonsai trees as centre piece, showcasing both of Northern and Southern hemispheres Christmas scenes, complete with miniature sized human, animals enjoying the festive season. The concept of project was to make traditional Japanese horticulture accessible, combining the Western and Eastern cultural values and aesthetics in a harmonious way.


The project was made possible in co-operation with Green’s Green, a leading Japanese horticulture moss engineer and producer, Anyhow Ltd and Studio Manolo.
