The Living Room Lounge & Bar at Grand Hyatt Dubai has a new design that aims to demonstrate the vibrancy of the city.
Hirsch Bedner Associates drew inspiration from diverse cultures in the Middle East, Europe and Asia in designing the space.
The space is made up of four lounges with portals that offer glimpses into the adjoining spaces. The Sunken Lounge serves as a hub, with other lounges emanating from it. The Velvet Lounge, inspired by the love of color in the Middle East, is furnished with purples, magentas and a hint of gold with velvets and patterned fabrics.
The Chinese Lounge uses reds and blacks to create a sense of drama. The space is decorated with oversized chandeliers and a photographic scene from a Chinese nightclub; the central figure’s dress is colored to match the fabrics throughout the lounge.
The European Lounge, which guests enter through a glowing orange portal, features chairs upholstered in modern fabrics and pearlized leathers, with black lacquer frames. The room is decorated with white-on-white details and splashes of gray and orange. Artistic elements include large oil paintings on aluminum by Julia Brooker and a wall of antiqued mirror that offers a glimpse into the Velvet Lounge.
The Living Room Lounge & Bar features a live kitchen that showcases chefs at work and serves cocktails and light bites.
