THIS FESTIVE SEASON DRINKING & DINING WITH PAN PACIFIC LONDON
In collaboration with EC (Business Improvement District) and MTArt Agency, Pan Pacific London is proud to welcome the immersive festive installation MOSAIC, designed by renowned and award-winning artist Arnaud Lapierre to its plaza for the season. Set against the giant backdrop of the hotel’s external ‘orchard of trees’ light installation, a nod to Pan Pacific London’s design ethos, MOSAIC is a unique reimagination of the traditional Christmas tree made from recycled emerald-green glass and up to 200 mirrored cubes. The striking and iridescent structure reflects every detail of its surroundings, epitomising the diversity of old and new London architecture through the reflection of light.
