Sofitel Dubai Downtown

Dubai, UAE

Artistic

Architecture

The Wilson Associates design team was asked to create a completely novel design aesthetic that was timeless, contemporary and memorable. In response to the challenge set by Sofitel’s Design Director, Isabelle Maffre, the Wilson Associates designers conceived an “art hotel” based on 1950s & 1960s geometric op art movement. They wanted bold patterns, quirky styles and art incorporated into the architecture of the hotel. The term “French Irony” was coined throughout the design to describe unique applications of leather and acrylic panels, glass art and back-lit platforms that create an environment full of energy and an iconic French design.
