When InterContinental decided to build a five-star hotel at the South end of Tel Aviv’s beach front, it wasa brave move to be so far away from the popularnorthern side where most of the other luxury hotelsare located.
However, 15 years later it proved to be a smart choice as the area is now the epicentre of cool. So much so that the newly refurbished top floor suites can command more than $3000 a night.
Working with ara Design, we supplied a wide range of decorative fittings for the project.
In The Tel Aviv suite – the largest of all suites at 126 sq m - cream shades were used throughout the living and bedroom areas. The two-tier metal mesh pendant over the dining table was inspired by the long sandy beach in Tel Aviv with the subtle shimmering effect adding a touch of understated luxury. The bathroom features a bespoke table lamp incorporating an etched glass base. The Royal Suites continue the natural feel. The cream shade on the bespoke floor lamp is offset by the walnut finish of the wooden lamp base. The bedside table lamps use an elegant ceramic curved base in a polished black finish, which provides a neat contrast to the pastel colour palette.
