With a modern design approaches and forms, the arched dome elements of classical architecture are combined with shapes and colors to build a visual impact and create an artistic atmosphere like a gallery.
The dome represents the contrast and convergence of the new and the old, the tradition and the rebirth. The arched sequence of scenes creates a strong sense of ritual, frozen in time, like thousands of frames in a movie, stretching endlessly.
The charm of Xin Rong Ji lies in the authentic ingredients, original flavor, and sophistication. In this regard, cooking is the same as interior design.
