Six months in the making, the signature fan symbol of Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur will take on a distinctly Malaysian aesthetic this month as the hotel commemorates its 20th anniversary.
Make your way through any Mandarin Oriental hotel across the globe and you’ll notice the ever-changing façade of each property’s fan. While the logo remains unmistakably the same, each hotel is encouraged to produce their own version of the brand's 11-bladed fan.
“The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur has always had a very traditional, Malaysian motif woven into the fabric, the carpets, the columns even – it’s built into the building, not just artwork placed on a background,” shares Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur’s general manager, Frank Stocek.
“Having that deep sense of place is important to us, and Royal Selangor was able to capture that and bring it into the latest version of the fan.”
