Designing for the future

Capella Singapore launches the first of an annual series of sustainable art-inspired mooncake boxes

SINGAPORE Thursday, 2 August 2012 – With a firm belief that good design encourages longevity and memorability, Capella Singapore’s mooncake box will make the perfect gift this Mid-Autumn Festival. 

The first in a series of art-inspired boxes, the lacquered lid, featuring a vibrant floral motif, that can also be re-used as a serving tray for the mooncakes and the natural wooden box as a keepsake chest.  The design is intentionally contemporary and artistically minimalistic to encourage re-use of the box.

The uniquely playful design is created to encourage guests to keep the mooncake box long after the Mid-Autumn Festival, reducing unnecessary wastage.

In support of local enterprises, each and every box is carefully handcrafted by local craftsmen in Singapore, further reducing our carbon footprint. 

Gracing the mooncake box, are two baked mooncake flavours that are both intensely modern and intimately traditional. 

Cassia’s Signature Mooncake: A fragrant mooncake true to its namesake (as the cassia spice is a type of cinnamon), infused with cinnamon, osmanthus and tangerine peel.

Capella Constellation Tea Mooncake: A traditional tea-infused baked mooncake created with the signature Capella Constellation Tea, a true experience for the senses with a rich floral flavour.

The boxes are priced at S$288+GST per box OR can be purchased as part of the Over the Moon package.

From S$688++ per night for a minimum of two nights, the Over the Moon Package includes:

- Accommodation in a luxurious Premier Garden Room
- Daily signature spa treatment based on the phases of the moon for two (per day)
- Daily breakfast for two at The Knolls Restaurant
- A box of four mooncakes (one box per stay)

For stays September and October 2012. The mooncake box can be delivered earlier if required.

The limited edition Capella Mooncake Set is available from 27 August to 30 September 2012 and subject to availability. For order enquiries, please contact Cassia at +65 6591 5045 / [email protected].
