The Es­cape Room

India Today - - COVER STORY -

There are am­ple rea­sons to draw you to the Es­cape Room—it’s the first-of-its-kind game room in the city and its de­sign and dé­cor is sure to keep you ask­ing for more. While the 63 minute game, based on the life of 19th cen­tury ex­plorer Alexan­dra Lion­heart, is in­trigu­ing, the dé­cor is a sure win­ner. Owner San­jali Nir­wani, 29, a for­mer cor­po­rate pro­fes­sional, moved back from Am­s­ter­dam and col­lab­o­rated with Dutch artists and de­sign­ers to cre­ate the space in Ahmed­abad. The dé­cor makes you travel back in time with wooden floor­ing, vin­tage wall pa­pers and ar­ti­facts col­lected from the world over that take you on a vis­ual tour from Vic­to­rian era Europe to the tribal colonies of South Amer­ica. The ad­join­ing café boasts of a dé­cor that’s in­spired by the works of Dutch graphic de­signer MC Esher who made math­e­mat­i­cally in­spired wood­cuts and lith­o­graphs. “We’ve used a lot of geo­met­ric in­te­ri­ors and the brand­ing is in­spired by MC Esher’s iso­met­ric ar­chi­tec­ture,” ex­plains Nir­wani.
