InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has partnered London-based contemporary artist Alexander Hall, also known as Haut de Gamme, to create a stunning art installation that celebrates the luxury hotel chain’s 200 properties around the world.

The installation consists of 200 champagne bottles that Hall individually hand-painted in his bright and energetic drip style. Each bottle is unique, with a design inspired by each of the 200 hotels — including the new InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland, where this remarkable art piece is now on display. The finished bottles are suspended together in a stunning pattern that reveals the number 200. The installation will be travelling to a number of InterContinental hotels around the world over the next few months. In addition, Hall is creating a bespoke Haut de Gamme painting to mark this milestone, with a number of limited-edition prints.

The upcoming InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is located in a former quarry in southwestern Shanghai. The 18-storey architectural masterpiece has two floors above ground and 16 below, including two floors that are underwater. In contrast to the traditional architectural concept of building high-rises, the hotel’s unconventional design extends the space beneath the ground by reflecting the natural landscape of the quarry. Other recent openings for the brand include InterContinental San Diego, a vibrant addition to the city’s waterfront; InterContinental Sofia, which marks the brand’s debut in Bulgaria; and InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort on a stretch of idyllic beach on the tropical Vietnamese island.
