Founder of Victoria Tang Studio and Thirty30 Creative

Victoria Tang

Each festive season over the last five years, our House has commissioned leading architecture and design studios to create a bespoke Christmas tree. For 2021, multidisciplinary creative design firm Victoria Tang Studio presents a unique East-meets-West concept that draws on Chinese heritage and traditionally Western Christmas foliage to create a sustainable, culturally diverse Christmas Tree.

Inspired by classic East Asian folding screens and Chinese craftsmanship, “A Handmade Christmas” tree is composed of triangular panels that reinterpret the traditional Christmas tree shape in a modern context. Each panel is embellished with refined Chinese hand embroidery - Pan Jin Xiu (盤金繡), a technique that draws on a 2,000-year-old artisanal “Dragon’s Robe” design that was once used for the Emperor and incorporates a distinctive “hand-twisted” gold thread. Reviving this traditional craft in Wuxi, Jiangsu province – 7 embroidery masters spent hundreds of hours embroidering a festive pattern of pine, pinecones, and golden baubles.

“Inspired by festive scents, the design challenges the notion of a traditional Chinese screen as a room divider and reimagines the piece as a deconstructed tree within a pine forest. The feeling is inclusive and embracing, and the piece is designed to live beyond the festive season.” - Victoria Tang.

In keeping with our annual tradition and the spirit of giving, the one-of-a-kind tree will be raffled for charity, with all proceeds benefitting the Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association.
