As with all Designlab Experience projects, the root begins with conversations that form the mood and style evolving into a narrative driven foundation that is able to hold as well as respond to these intimate conversations, taking them to another dimension of design-led memory making.
The team which includes architects, designers, strategists, engineers, fabricators and artists, approached the celebration of this important life transition as an ode to the shared memories of the bride and her late grandfather as well as memories and adventures throughout early life leading to this special moment.
In collaboration with a number of international and local artists, the memories were transposed as scenes or acts with the bride as the central character moving along a golden pathway. Following the tradition of legendary tales and paintings, this resulted in a theatrical triptych composition of space and cinematic moments. Alongside longtime collaborator Stefan Lubrino, the scenography of the three spaces – a grand entrance, a domed dining area and a nostalgic majlis – were ‘activated’ by the movement of the bride across the golden spine anchoring the guest’s journey and offering an ethereal, dreamy sensation.
