Pullman hotels are celebrated for their use of art to express the brand's personality alongside the uniqueness of each international address. At Pullman, art and design envelope guests in fresh, contemporary and inspiring ways through well crafted spaces. Art at Play is Pullman's first edition of products featuring British artist Adam Nathaniel Furman's expressively colorful designs. Items such as key cards, ceramic mugs and beach bags bring the brand's modern design philosophy to life in every corner of the hotel. The second floor's communal space of the hotel will showcase Pullman Artist Playground series of exhibitions in partnership with local artists, photographers, sculptors, painters and designers, to offer guests innovative art experiences.
The lobby's design is inspired by the canals and lakes of the surrounding Qingpu District, imbuing the property with local ambience. The lobby utilizes Pullman's concept of The Junction to offer modern, nomadic and connected travelers a relaxed, open and trendy space to work and play.
