A brand new ziinlife experience!

It's been a while! 

The reason we haven't been updating this blog is because of two major reasons: 
1. we're preparing the launch of a new furniture collection and; 
2. we've just opened a brand new showroom/cafe/loft/library/creative hub (all in one yes!) in Shanghai!

Located near Fudan University in Shanghai, ziinlife Life Store opened on a sunny day last month. We named it 'Life Store/ 生活館' because it's a whole building that's everything you need to enjoy life! A space over 500 sqm, ziinlife Life Store consists of a coffee shop, a loft and a library that provides you with an ultimate relaxing atmosphere with constant sunlight pouring in. And of course, it is a space decorated with all of our best furniture pieces to bring you the most comfortable experience.

Collaborated with renowned Moon Coffee in Shanghai, ziinlife Life Store's coffee is curated and prepared for you by the best barristers in town. Just look at the design of our cups and you can get a glimpse of ziinlife's aesthetic in everything we do.

Also a collaboration, dessert is served by Jouer (French meaning 'to play') from Hong Kong. The mastermind behind Jouer, Anna, is a renowned pâtissier who has spent years studying the best of dessert-making in Paris. 

Red Elephant
When you walk in, visitors are instantly greeted by this pink tunnel that's supposed to look like an elephant; it is inspired by ziinlife's No More Macaron Sofa (tribute to 2016's Pantone color of the year - serenity).

ziin cafe
A coffee area that is bright and spacious, ziin cafe serves you the best coffee and dessert prepared by our good friends and partners Moon Coffee (Shanghai) and Jouer Atelier (Hong Kong). The coffee counter is designed in a way that customers are invited to interact with our barristers; we want everyone (even the introverts!) to just relax and be friends :)

Design Gallery 
Located on 2nd and 3rd floor of ziinlife Life Store, the most iconic pieces of ziinlife furniture are exhibited here. More than just a regular showroom, we want visitors to feel like they are visiting an art exhibition.

ziin loft
A mini loft on the top floor of the Life Store, various styles of interior is simulated here using ziinlife's furniture. It acts as a showcase of different possibilities ziinlife brings to your household. As season changes, the display also gets a new look!

Another very important component of our showroom is the platform we created to showcase good designs and brands we enjoy. Including Offgrid, Atelier Errance and Jiu Kou Shan, we aim to gradually curate more interesting brands into our collections.

ziin library
The concept of the library derives from our love for books. From art & design to architecture and lifestyle, you can easily find yourself indulged in endless reading and daydreaming!

Meditation Space
Like its title suggests, it is a corner specially built for meditating. Simply grab a couch, relax, sit back and let your minds wander! Once in a while, it's nice to indulge yourself in nothing but solitude.
