During the holiday season from November 23, 2022 through January 2, 2023, the Open Piazza at Times Square will transform into a green healing space.

Visitors shall expect to get immersed in the coniferous forests for a unique, therapeutic Christmas experience. While the Room of True Love – a collaboration among Serrini, MOOV, and ZtoryTeller – will set foot on the 5th floor of the mall, bringing everyone a multi-sensory interactive space filled with art and music. Along with mindfulness workshops led by Serrini and a pop-up store, visitors shall embark on a guided self-discovery journey. In addition, Times Square and Botanic Union will jointly release a gardening-themed calendar and Christmas tree workshop, wishing everyone a thriving and prosperous year ahead!
Xmas Spa with Serrini & Botanic Union (G/F Open Piazza)
Mega-size Tree Baby to enjoy Nordic spa in coniferous Nordic Forest
The Open Piazza at Times Square will transform into a green healing Nordic Forest, accompanied by Serrini’s therapeutic music. The centre of the Forest is home to a 6-meter mega-size red wooden cottage decorated with 15 vinyls handpicked by Serrini, who is eager to share her winter playlist with fans. At the front yard is a 2-meter life-size luminated “Tree Baby” – a character created by Serrini – who makes its debut in a steamy, relaxing Nordic spa surrounded by over 100 conifers of various species and heights. With the reflections by multiple 3-meter mirrors, the Open Piazza turns into a surreal Nordic Forest. Stepping on the pine bark that filled the forest depiction, visitor can enjoy the therapeutic wonders of mother nature even in an urban setting.
The Room of True Love (Shop 517-519, 5/F)
Multi-sensory self-discovery journey
Complementing the Christmas installations in the Open Piazza is the multi-sensory interactive Room of True Love on the 5th floor, which offers an immersive music spa that reactivates visitors’ five senses. Adorned with conifer ornaments and incense tree bark throughout, the Room of True Love is the backyard of the It’s Relaxing Time set in the Open Piazza. The Room also features a Smelling Zone co-developed by Serrini and organic fragrance brand Wenxiangji. Visitors are invited to embark on a multi-sensory self-discovery journey with five fragrances handpicked by Serrini – including Indian jasmine, ylang-ylang, bergamot, frankincense, and Atlas cedarwood, which make for “True Love” – a specifically mixed fragrance that represents the glee and sorrow, as well as laughs and tears that come with love.
Sitting next to the Smelling Zone is the Performance Zone co-developed by local music streaming platform MOOV and storytelling art platform ZtoryTeller. The Performance Zone will host the Serrini x ZtoryTeller Bedtime Ztory – a story spa featuring 10 stories narrated by Serrini.
In addition, a pop-up store will open in The Room of True Love. The Gwendolyn Spa album as well as multiple ZtoryTeller items will be up for grabs as early as November 24. While a series of Tree Baby souvenirs and limited-edition teabags co-developed by Serrini and Tea Concepts will be available for purchase from December 4.
