Allure, Yas Marine Island, Abu Dhabi
Not strictly speaking a restaurant this week but a ‘spin-off’ we think you may be interested in for its jaw-dropping opulence and cutting edge design. Sited on the fabulous Yas Marine Island development the nightclub is the first from the owners of mythically elite Cipriani Restaurants.
Orbit Design Studios planned the space to appeal to the most rarefied echelons of the international luxury crowd with views over a Formula One race track, an elevator for VIPs, and a hyperformal plan.
Combining yacht-like seating with fractal walls and a ceiling made up of shards of light that sail to the floor and can be illuminated with ‘infinite colour control’, provided by mixing red, green, and blue fluorescent lamps. In the main room, radiused corners meet facets while pink gold leaf and bronze cladding step the lavishness up another notch.
