It’s all in the numbers with the Crystal Design Centre (CDC) located on the Ekkamai-Ramindra. Twenty-two main buildings sprawl over 73 rai of land, with over 500 showrooms offering 10,000 brands of every product you would need to give your home a makeover; think Fendi, Magis, Poggenpohl. Iverlight, Ralph Lauren as well as local brands Ong-Orn, SB Design and much more.

More than 40 trendy eateries provide the sustenance to keep your feet moving as you trawl through the 100,000 sqm of retail space that also includes banks, a mortgage centre and a 24-hour supermarket. The numbers game continues with the 3,500 sqm activity space that houses eight business meeting rooms, the 1,000-sqm Crystal Grand Ballroom and the Crystal Design Library with over 4,000 design books and magazines.

Divided into two zones – the North Wing and the South Wing – International architecture and interior design firm dwp transformed it by employing organic shapes and a white backdrop mixed with bold colours to unite the spaces and create a unique, fun and entertaining environment. Using polycarbonate and a lighting system to generate different colour tones for each building in the North Zone, they gave it a contemporary look and feel, while for the South Wing, divided into four zones and styles, they employed a variety of materials like steel, wood, plastic and recycled materials to provide different moods.

Connecting the two zones is a central escalator system that appears to have escaped from a sci-fi movie. Its brushed aluminium façade and curved lines escort visitors to the floors above where a state-of-the-art library plays the “Enhance Communication” theme that further reinforces the design element of the CDC.

Even if you are not in the market for home accessories, it’s a great place to get a bite or a drink and people watch at the Est. 33, the chic microbrewery by Singa Beer, or the New York-style bistro, Aston Gastro Bar.
