Downtown Dubai’s latest design hotel The Dubai EDITION is a must visit for arts and interior enthusiasts.
The Dubai EDITION which opened its doors just a few months ago, is a design lover’s paradise. An architectural marvel its interiors are not just impressive but completely unique and a breath of fresh air in the city. Designed by local architects LW Design this hotel offers a new vision of modern luxury that combines hospitality, art and design.
Part of the EDITION Group the hotel pays homage to Dubai’s passion to create something entirely new and the result is a unique property that has its own personality but doesn’t stray from the attention to detail and finesse that the EDITION Group is known for. When entering the lobby you will immediately be taken aback by the 50-foot-high ceilings and the vast breath-taking space. An impressive spiral staircase is the showpiece of the space and its white finish is complemented by dark wooden interiors and design-focused furniture pieces.
This design ethic continues into the 275 guestrooms, which all feature custom-made or handpicked pieces of furniture that offer a blend between vintage and contemporary styles. This simplicity in design immediately brings attention to details including the matching of veins in the natural stone and wood. The colour palette is minimal yet warm, and the light oak wood and stone accents flow from one room to the other, evoking a feeling of tranquil luxury. The monochromatic colour scheme and contemporary minimalism make each room feel fresh and light, complemented by the elegant lines of the furniture, textured upholstery and wooden-lined walls.
The hotel also features a number of dining destinations and bars that continue with this same design ethic, each with its own style. On the ground floor, Duomo is a theatrical Italian restaurant serving modern interpretations of the traditional cuisine. This impressive space is filled with light during the daytime and at night, Abstract digital art is projected onto the dome ceiling above creating an interactive experience for diners.
On the first floor, Jolie is a lively venue serving exquisite French cuisine inspired by Mediterranean coastal flavours. Here, wall to wall portraits inspired by Parisian high fashion sets the scene for an energetic, glamourous space to transition from morning to evening dining. The restaurant is filled with natural, earthy hues and stylish rattan furniture. And Leon is a cosy speakeasy-style bar that features punchy accents in orange and red against a dark, rich background. Clever lighting further enhances the vibrant colour-blocking throughout the space.
But don’t just take our word for it, this new, exciting hotel is a must visit for those who appreciate fashion, design and architecture.
