Wang’s international design career began four years ago with a successful signature hotel renovation in Los Angeles, for which she won an international award from the prestigious Interior Design magazine.

The mooncake boxes feature a modern design, and can be used for several purposes including a platinum jewellery box. In consideration of designing the mooncake box, WANG tells a narrative that forms a backdrop of the symbolic meaning of a full moon night. The origins of appreciating the moon has always play a significant part of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The moon shines the brightest and fullest on the day of the festival. With the admiration of full moon as a symbol of peace, prosperity and family reunion. Joyce said, “Our intention is to modernize and lighten up the box which ties back to the light refurbishing of the hotel rooms. As such, during our design process we emphasize on clean geometry and subtle layer detailing on painting a full moon and with geometric shapes of frothing scattered clouds.” An understated herringbone pattern of the WANG logo is imprint as a decorative motif. Whilst, the metal detail that binds the tassel is a signature and personal touch of WANG’s aesthetic.
