Roger Thomas Talks Clouds and Cotai
Feast your eyes and mind on this incredible interview with Wynn Resorts' superstar designer Roger Thomas... 13 minutes of inspiring discussion, luxurious images, emotive illustrations and high definition video of Wynn and Encore, Las Vegas and Macau.
Part way through the video, Roger discussed some of his artistic inspiration for creating Wynn Palace Cotai.
I found when I was beginning the exploration of Chinoserie for the Wynn Palace Cotai project - really looking at Chinese art, textiles, stone carvings, paintings and furniture for the most part - that a motif of the Chinese cloud, the way that Asia has expressed the motif of the cloud, was prevalent in all eras of Chinese art. It began to interest me.
Suddenly, the rendering that leaked last year takes on even larger life.
For even more Roger, here is his induction and acceptance speech into the Interior Design magazine Hall of Fame. Such a truly lovely guy.
