Mirage, Bangalore- India

Mirage, the new lounge bar nestled on the top floor of a recently opened mall, is everything that its name suggests – a sumptuously opulent space that’s bound to take your breath away. With plush seating, luxuriant velvet fabrics, amber hued interiors, a loaded bar and accent lighting, Mirage has a definitive style. And what you can’t miss here is the very decadent mood that pervades the space, like an umani flavour in a dish.
Mirage is an example of maximalism done right. The mood indoors is confidently dramatic, with snakeskin textures, well-lit and contrastingly dim areas, the play of bright swathes of light reflecting from metallic surfaces like the floor tiles.
The flamboyance of the space is visible right from the entrance. You can’t miss the large and almost theatrical image of Medusa with snake hair as you step in. A gently undulating metallic-tiled path draws you into the space, like a river flowing through and taking you along. The reflection from the overhead lights animates this path like the ripples in a river. On either side of the snaking path is the well-appointed indoor section, with velvet seating and plush wall-to-wall carpeting.
The indoor area, spread across 1,700 sq ft is designed to appeal to day dining as well as dinner guests. The rest of the space is converted into an outdoor area to leverage Bengaluru’s great weather and a view of the City’s skyline.
But Mirage comes into its own by night, when the light plays with the fabrics and burl veneer walls to create an upscale, ritzy backdrop for a night out on the town. With sumptuous seating in velvet, sheer curtains and wall-to-wall carpeting, the indoor dining area is rich, exotic and opulent.
Three large islands that occupy the area at the indoor-outdoor intersection are a further nod to the water theme. While creating a seamless continuity of the same dark and light mood into the outdoor section, the large islands hold in them giant orbs, casting soft glowing rays of light around.
As the indoor section ends, the outdoor section takes over to enthrall you with the bar that’s a focal point.
Lighting features in this section stand out for their unusual treatment. A mesh of tiny button lights shaped into a globe hang from the ceiling to make stunning lighting features. In such a boldly extravagant space, the tiny lights offer a softly beautiful contrast. More twinkling fibre optic lights are used to envelop a giant column in the outdoor section and continue on the bar as well, offering a foil to the brightly lit counter.

Feast India Company, Kanpur – India

Feast India Company aka The Pink Zebra is a take on the bygone British Culture in the city of Kanpur. With the extravagance of the European Grandeur, not many know how important the city of Kanpur was to the British Corporation of India. The design story initiates the change over time by re-writing an architectural essay through this space amalgamation of old with the quirkiness of  Art Nouveau glitz (which can be seen throughout the city).

The purpose of making “The Pink Zebra” was to speak of a complex and contradictory architecture based on the richness and ambiguity of old and modern experience including that very experience which is inherent in art. The core idea was to create a hybrid rather than pure, compromising rather than clean and leave the visitor hanging in the middle of an artistic sea.

Ideating initiated from the clients love for Wes Anderson’s set ideology and his love for fearful quirkiness along with constructed frames throughout this space.The love for extreme symmetry and restricted color palettes can often give the expression of a surreal , self contained world but adding that certain bizarre element to break that monotony of Wes’s spatial ideology came through the black and white zebra lines dipping themselves in the pink monotone set in the British Raj’s colonial order.

The simple idea was to create a distinct aesthetic architectural style that connects to the city people and poses its stand by the use of a striking color palette . The Pink Zebra with its unique facade design creates an everlasting effect on the passersby and invites them into a magical , expertly crafted world whose spaces are framed to treat the eyes.

Misu, Trade Tower, Bangalore – India

Set inside the newest Prestige development in their Al Fresco style dining area, the third Misu is fresh, bright and botanical. With a ‘Mid Summer Nights Dream’ feel, this cozy space is full of cheer and glee. The main wall is long and magical, drawing you in to its every detail. Inspired by Gustav Klimt’s avant- garde and art nouveau works, the enigmatic face of an Asian woman is also set inside a dreamy lush garden where the flowers and leaves take on a mosaic feel. It’s interesting to note that Klimt himself was influenced by Japanese art.

Just like the two outlets before this one, the third Misu also has elements of nature within the design; whether it’s in the imagery, the colours , or the upholstery. The colour blocks of salmon pink meeting the deep blue represents a fiery dusk rose sky meeting the blue waters. The round backlit mirror recalls the sun, perhaps an eclipse. The loosely hung fabric represents the wind and the whole botanical feel with the use of several plants reprints the earth.

Elements from the two outlets before this one are used for brand recall. While some furniture elements and colours are similar , they are used in different ways to impart a slightly different feel. Like all Misu’s, the coziness lends itself to a space that is comfortable and chic for all occasions.

Bar Palladio, Jaipur – India

Bar Palladio was born with a simple intent: present classic Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting, create an atmosphere of magic, a sense of surprise.
Inspired by the iconic Caffé Florian and Harry’s Bar in Venice and christened after the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, Bar Palladio Jaipur is an ode to Italian style and cuisine, viewed through the prism of a Mughal dreamworld.

Italian owner Barbara Miolini dreamed of a place where people from across the globe could share their stories, find inspiration, and unwind, letting their cares melt away.
Bar Palladio is located within a daringly restored garden belvedere in the historic Narain Niwas Palace Hotel. With wandering peacocks, mature mango trees, and garden of tented canopies Bar Palladio is an orientalist fantasy, a new vision for European dining in India.
