The Middle House: A hospitality project in Shanghai with modern-European and East-meets-West interiors

Take a look at the interiors of The Middle House – the fourth outlet from boutique hotel chain House Collective by Swire Hotels – and you might find the design language familiar, with clean, bold lines that make up the sleek silhouettes in the hotel rooms and serviced apartments. This is the work of Piero Lissoni, renowned architect and founder of Italian architecture firm Lissoni Architettura, who is also the brains behind many designs by respectable furniture brands including Boffi, Cassina, Fritz Hansen and Kartell.
