Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok, Vignette Collection highlights local talents in its design

by Aiden

A modern take on Thai art.

Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok is the first Vignette Collection hotel to open in Asia, and is part of the world-renowned, luxury IHG Hotels & Resorts and Siam Sindhorn Co., Limited brands. Designed by award-winning strategic design firm, Eight Inc. contemporary design, laidback elegance and striking local art come together at the beautiful property. Punctuating the minimalist lobby space, an incredible textile masterpiece by Thai artist, Kachama Perez, epitomises the hotel’s commitment to supporting Thai craftsmanship. Kachama acquired her advanced dying and weaving skills during time spent in the mountains of Northern Thailand with the Karen tribe. Shiny strands of recycled aluminium are threaded between the indigo threads, depicting the negative human impacts on marine life and encouraging dialogue on ocean conservation. 

Vignette Collection hotels prioritise creating and cherishing a sense of place. With this in mind, P49 Deesign utilises the story of the Bangkok tram of old in the design of the hotel’s lobby area. From the 1920s until 1968, the Silom line would pass Ratchadamri Road – just moments away from Sindhorn Midtown – before terminating at Pratunam intersection. P49 Deesign used dark metal to cover the front desk of the hotel lobby, while the metal symbolises the tram tracks that previously ran by the hotel. 

The property’s 393 rooms feature bathroom amenities from Karl Lagerfeld and modern amenities, such as Fritz Hansen’s iconic Drop™ chairs. The Fitness Centre offers panoramic city views, as does the Horizon Pool, which is located on the 18th floor. Works by Fine Art Photographer, Visarute Angkatavanich, who handpicks the fish he wishes to photograph, and whose image of a Siamese fighting fish was launched on the iPhone 6s in 2015, have pride of place on every floor. 

Our rooms are also decorated with inspiration from the Siamese fighting fish, from the art pieces on the walls, to the throw pillows, and even the floor rugs. Every aspect of the hotel is carefully curated to highlight Thai talents, but in an elevated, contemporary way.
