Creating a paradise on earth
Is the designer’s task.
In the fierce business competition, continuous renewal is the only way for the survival and development of business. This point is particularly evident in Shenyang MIXC,which as a landmark building in Shenyang, with Shenyang people through ten spring and Autumn. Countless brands have been updated and businesses restructured. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of MIXC, Golden Maple Design was invited to upgrade the design and business of the food court in the C-shaped ribbon space formed around the ice rink on the sixth floor, so as to empower the space and create a food block with both functions and aesthetics.
The designer is committed to creating an immersive food market full of fantasy. Through the determination of the theme, the unity of the space style, the extension of the atmosphere and the leakage of the market personnel, the scene and emotional connection between tourists and the market is realized, and the scene experience of the space is enhanced.
In today’s society, we both linger on the prosperity of the city and yearn for the beauty of nature. Can the two coexist? “Legend has it that somewhere in the sky there is a towering tree, countless people live around this tree, the most prosperous market and the most beautiful natural environment.” The designer symbolized the utopian environment, imagined, deconstructed and reshaped it realistically, and determined the theme as “Tree of the Sky”.
With the image of “tree” as a symbolic symbol, it integrates into the space environment through abstract artistic modeling, and creates a bustling and natural and interesting unique food market for consumers together with a variety of food shops. Designers strike a balance between fantasy and reality, making utopia realistic and imagination conceptual and drawing.

In the theme area, the entrance is the “Sky tree” art metal shape covering the whole area. The “sky tree” is woven with metal, and the central design simulates the sky light. The animal art shape represented by “hippopotamus” expresses the beautiful yearning for life and sunshine. “Tree of the sky” comes from fantasy, the marble rooted in reality, is thriving in Shenyang MIXC.
Through the “Tree of the Sky”, a sky river runs through the whole food block. On both sides of the river are open island shops and independent shops arranged along the ice rink. The reasonable layout of different formats echoes each other, reflecting the designer’s thinking on the survival of the food court in the modern commercial body. The ceiling shape represents both flowing water and star orbit, as well as the extension of “tree” branches, representing the ductility, dynamism, inclusiveness, orientation and vitality of life.
Break away from the bondage of realism in the context of realism. Round and shining bulbs adorn the shape of flowing water, giving it the concept of “spray”. The shining lights are both “spray” in the water and “planet” in the orbit. It is a creation of phenomenological forces against the laws of nature, a reproduction of grotesque and unconstrained scenes.
To inject vitality into the space, the designer takes “Tree of the Sky” as the core to build a small world — the scene market. In the market, the buying and selling behavior is usually the link, connecting the buyers and sellers.
And in the context of modern, stylist to “fair” concept has carried on the refactoring, energized for setting, consumer role transformation for the participants, thereby gaining a positive, positive psychological experience, it allows individuals or groups to participate in activities with great pleasure, prompting the individual or group to the same activity over and over again and not tired.
Designers are not only recreating established Spaces aesthetically, but also redefining them functionally, commercially and spiritually. The inclusiveness of space is incisively and vividly reflected in this project. To create a special scene for the specific behavior of consumers, the combination of personalized and scenarioalized consumption and design is a communication between designers and consumers, as well as designers’ thinking on the relationship between ideal and reality and modern business.
