Under the dome
There's been a cloud hanging over our city this week – a pollution cloud, that is, and one that was previously threatening to put a damper on everyone's pre-Christmas fall festivities. Good news, then, that the enterprising folks at French patisserie Tienstiens have set up a bunch of blow-up, geodesic domes on their Sanlitun rooftop to protect you from Beijing's chilly, PM2.5 air.
To be frank, these domes won’t actually be doing much to protect you from pollution, but they’re super cosy – and dare we say it, hygge – making them perfect for taking plenty of Insta shots (we suspect that’s their main purpose), or curling up and slurping back some hot wine (our main purpose). They've even supplied blankets, letting you comfortably hibernate under the guise of being social.
