Dynasty Room is an experiential pop-up bar and event space celebrating the spirit of Seattle’s International District designed in collaboration with architect Board & Vellum. The project began when the property developer of the Four Seas restaurant approached long-time community member and business owner, I-Miun Liu, offering the space to be activated for just two years. In collaboration with Board & Vellum our goal was to create innovative ways to blend the space’s iconic existing features with modern expressions of art and culture. Dynasty Room focuses on the visitor’s experience with an immersive space punctuated with custom artwork and a gift shop full of Dynasty Room gear.
Upon entering, guests are greeted by a ten-foot-tall cardboard wolf temple sculpture and custom murals. Ambient sounds and subtle fog lure visitors further into the space: a hidden bar decked out in red and gold accents. For this space, Electric Coffin created custom wallpaper, table screenprinting, and a back-painted glass artwork modeled after Chinese firecracker packaging.
