Located in the prestigious Raffles Hotel, Yi by Jereme Leung restaurant is the renowned celebrity chef’s first in Singapore. Being part of a historically important institution would mean a certain expectation of finesse and sophistication in the restaurant’s interior décor, and it certainly did not disappoint.
Appetite for Art
Yi means art in the Chinese language, and its aesthetics seeks to convey a delicate interpretation of the Chinese mythology of creation, taking guests on a multisensory dining experience, firstly with fine details and a soft colour palette that are pleasing to the eye.
A stunning white-painted floral ‘tunnel’ greets guests at the entrance, an enthralling artwork done in collaboration with a Toronto-based studio, before they are being led to the dining hall done up to symbolise a garden setting. The large doors and windows bring in abundant natural light, playing up the light hues. One’s eyes are immediately drawn to the gold-hued wall covering, a visual anchor point that features customised 3D printed chinoiserie artwork presented in detailed textures. Above, the ceiling is adorned with plaster sculptures commissioned to a local supplier. Inspired by clouds in a clear sky, the artwork here was given a creative twist.
