The pandemic showed us many examples of out-of-the-ordinary eateries like a Hungarian Michelin restaurant that was moved into a Ferris wheel to enable social distancing, Singapore Airlines converting its uber-luxurious business class section on the Airbus A380 into a fine dining restaurant, and also geodesic domes but nothing comes close to the grandeur of 50%Cloud.Artists Lounge a restaurant conceptualized by Cheng Chung Design Hong Kong (CCD) and established in China’s Yunnan Province in the town of Dongfengyun.
