Wiking Salon x Vietcetera

Wiking Salon isn’t just an art space; it’s a hub for artistic minds to meet and connect. It’s where people with similar interests, hobbies, and a love for art hang out. It’s not just for showing and swapping art; it’s a lively spot where music, fashion, and food come together.

You can find Wiking Salon in Centec Tower, and it’s a fancy ‘living room’ for members of the Wiking Private Club to chill with their important friends.

Right in the heart of the city, Wiking Salon is a hidden gem in busy Saigon. Stepping inside feels like entering a totally different world. It’s all warm yellow lights and modern style, with cool walls that make it feel private, free, and super inspiring.

Wiking Salon is versatile. It’s great for various events, conferences, performances, parties, and business meetings. But why do they call it a “salon”? What artistic ideas make this place so awesome?

The Essence of ‘Salon’

“Salon,” contrary to the common association with beauty parlors, has its roots in the 17th-century French nobility’s culture of intellectual gatherings and conversations.

These salons explored and discussed diverse topics like culture, art, science, and philosophy. Hosts meticulously orchestrated these gatherings, ensuring both formality and a private, exclusive environment for all attendees.

These gatherings were known for their open and respectful discussions, emphasizing the quality of conversation. Typically set up a cozy living room, with a large central table and chairs arranged around it, these salons fostered an intimate and engaging atmosphere for a select few.

The evolution of these meetings profoundly impacted European culture, thought, and art over the centuries. Modern iterations of the salon culture have since permeated various artistic mediums like poetry, music, and painting, evolving beyond their 18th-century origins.

Wiking Salon blends formality with comfort and revives the salon’s spirit in its contemporary exhibition space. Comprising three primary areas – the Event Hall, Meeting Room, and VIP Lounge – Wiking Salon caters to diverse artistic events and clientele, each space offering a unique encounter with art.
