A longstanding fixture of Dubai’s hotel scene, Shangri-La recently underwent a major refurbishment to refresh its interiors, focusing on the lobby, corridors and guestrooms. Capsule Arts was appointed to develop and supply artworks for the hotel guest floors.

The Approach

The art selection was led by the interior design scheme, which featured soothing neutral tones such as pale greys and cool blueish-purples. Our team focused on developing artworks which would enhance the relaxing, luxe feeling of the hotel interiors.

The Outcome

We sourced and framed a number of abstract artworks for the hotel guestrooms and suites featuring soft, flowing forms. Capsule Arts Studio also created a custom photographic triptych for the suites using digitally edited photos taken in Dubai’s famous Gold Souq. The colours of all artworks were tailoured to perfectly complement the space.

Featured Artist: Rica Belna

For the guest floor lift lobbies, our team commissioned Austrian artist Rica Belna to create a series of bespoke digital artworks printed on canvas, featuring fluid, sinuous shapes. Belna designed a colour palette that drew from and work harmoniously with the colours used in the carpet and wall finishes in the area, ensuring that her artworks augment the interior without overwhelming it.

The interior design team envisioned the two compositions as split into a series of panels and installed around the corners of the lift lobby. This presented a challenge to our production team, who manufactured custom canvases to ensure that the artwork imagery wrapped seamlessly
