This Christmas season, bask in the hope and cheer of giving with ION Orchard!
A Mesmerizing Display Of Hope With The Magical Pinwheel Tree
As ION Orchard kickstarts the yuletide season, this year’s Christmas display features specks of gold and silver helmed by a first-ever Magical Pinwheel Tree. The Magical Pinwheel Tree represents the universal symbol of life and resilience and towers at almost 20m tall. The enchanting Magical Pinwheel Tree consists of a lighted inner core, adorned with more than 250 pinwheels generating a dynamic light sequence that brings the tree to life.
Each pinwheel symbolises optimism and vitality and is both eco-friendly and sustainable. Crafted using non-toxic materials that are fully recyclable through polypropylene recycling channels, reducing the amount of waste created. Visitors are also able to interact with the installation, which is programmed to light up in different sequences while the pinwheel blades spin mesmerizingly for a delightful visual experience.
As the year draws to a close, ION Orchard welcomes all to experience the greatest gift of hope. While the usual hustle and bustle of merry-making activities and entertainment offerings may take place in different forms this year, ION Orchard is dialing up on gift-giving and casting the spotlight on the ones who matter most.
In addition to magnificent Christmas installations at the mall, we can look forward to an impressive line-up of festive deals to indulge in, the opportunity to give back to the community via a meaningful partnership with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), and a brand new F&B pop-up at ION Sky – the highly-anticipated first Jurassic World Cafe in Southeast Asia.
A first in Southeast Asia, visitors to ION Orchard will now be able to step back millions of years and feast amongst the dinosaurs at the new Jurassic World Café, brought to life through a collaboration between ION Orchard, 1-Group, PARCO, and Universal Brand Development.
Paying homage to the well-loved movie franchise, Jurassic World, this exciting dining and retail concept was inspired by the original concept seen in THE GUEST Café & diner, a themed café operated by PARCO in Japan.
Jurassic World Cafe will make its debut at ION Sky from 6 November 2020, offering a one-stop immersive dining and retail experience set against a stunning skyline. Families and movie fanatics can expect Instagram-worthy themed menu items inspired by key elements of the well-loved movie franchise, such as the Volcano Curry emulating lava from the active volcano in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Geologic Parfait, and Lava Cookies.

The newly unveiled Alexander McQueen store at ION Orchard follows the consistent design concept for house, employing a mix of Oak and Walnut wood, merging light and dark and complemented by solid brass hanging rails. A new cladding–‘cotton-crete’–a cotton-based papier m ch , has been exclusively developed for the space, and the light reflecting off the interior’s curved glass façade and cylindrical glass changing rooms (lined in fabric) is a sight you wouldn’t want to skip!
Valentino’s new 380 square meters flagship boutique opens into a spacious and bright entrance, with rooms anchored by an architectural Carrara column. The floors and walls are completely covered in Terrazzo and accented with wavy gypsum panels, while industrial black display shelves and velvet sofas add a touch of modernity and vigour to the display system.
