For the last couple of weeks, we've been busy with the installation of Giles Miller Studio's breathtaking new installation for Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates. The Bespoke project is part of our ongoing work with Kempinski Hotel MoE - previously we commissioned a mural for Salero Tapas & Bodega restaurant in the hotel, and a series of paintings by Emirati artist Mohammad Al Qassab for the Arabic Gallery
Approximately 5000 brass gold box elements were hung in series, cascading down the face of the reception feature wall. These boxes vary in depth, colour and transparency, and when viewed from afar, a pattern inspired by the UAE's undulating sand dunes emerges. When fully lit, the effect of the rolling dunes is quite spectacular, and we wanted to share some of our behind the scenes snaps from the install process.
London-based design practice, Giles Miller Studio, specialises in the development of innovative surface and interior design projects, marrying architecture with beautiful interior finishes. Capsule Arts has developed an ongoing relationship with the studio, collaborating on several high profile projects, includingDesign Days Dubai 2014, where we showcased the studio's new lighting sculpture series Castor & Pollux.
