The common rule to not touch the artwork doesn't apply to the 'Sea Cloud' as it's a sculpture that doubles as public seating for travelers to enjoy. Situated at the Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, the 'Sea Cloud' is the design work of Ken Chen and offers a spot to sit that's comfortable and stylish to enable a dual-purpose installation for the terminal.

The 'Sea Cloud' consists of twisted surfaces and a sculpted aesthetic that enables it to offer a birds-eye view of the sea that is inspired by the view of flying over it. This enables the public seating sculpture to be an exceptionally beautiful and appropriate piece for the airport for travelers to admire while passing through or sit on while waiting for their flight.
