Arco Deco theme for New Delhi suite
New Delhi-based Architecture Discipline has designed the Oberoi Suites (Art Deco), which was to refurbish 12 luxury suites in six months, intended to host Head of States and other dignitaries. Victorian and Art Deco themes were chosen to resonate with the brand’s overall design expression.
Inspired by the Indo-Saracenic style and the architecture of Delhi, the Art Deco theme features a lavish, timeless design. A gold-leaf screen at the entrance welcomes visitors, which forms a captivating backdrop to the study. Embroidered fabric panels, Lutyens-style armchairs, an intricately designed coffee table and an oak writing desk with ebony inlay furnish the expansive living room.
Two large picture windows and a king-size bed form the main elements of the bedroom, along with heavy brass and real teak elements. Bespoke upholstered furniture in luxury fabrics, hand-knotted silk carpets, handcrafted lights, geometrically-designed cornices and motifs are all inspired by the Art Deco era. Aged bronze, brass, leather, teak and oak add warmth to the suite. Designed in collaboration with Jaipur-based AKFD Studio, the lighting fixtures are inspired by Lutyens architecture.
Exclusive art pieces belonging to the owner, Mr. P.R.S. Oberoi’s private collection, are used for an engaging touch. The rooms also feature magnificent views of Humayun’s Tomb or the Delhi Golf Course.
