Easy breezy com­fort cui­sine

VM&RD - - BEHIND THE SCENE - VM TALK -

Nook at the Aloft Kuala Lumpur is one such place where the de­sign goes be­yond the or­di­nary. The din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is made spe­cial in the ‘easy breezy’ at­mos­phere, the dé­cor, and the sense of a spe­cial event ren­dered in this restau­rant’s de­sign. This sim­ply makes the ex­pe­ri­ence more ap­pe­tiz­ing with ap­peal­ing fur­ni­ture, lux­u­ri­ous fin­ishes and al­lur­ing light­ing. Here’s a look.

To­day, eat­ing out is of­ten a high-drama op­por­tu­nity to im­merse your­self in not only good food and con­ver­sa­tion, but also in a vibe that takes away the hum­drum of ev­ery­day liv­ing. De­sign­ers have in­cor­po­rated tech­nol­ogy, art, and na­ture among other themes to cre­ate a world for din­ers to es­cape to. Nook, a restau­rant in­side Aloft, Kuala Lumpur is one such place in which the de­sign con­cept is fu­tur­is­tic, con­tem­po­rary and mod­ern de­signed with a smart ca­su­al­ness. Nook per­fectly em­braces its East-meets-West de­meanour. Con­tem­po­rary and mod­ern, the all-white in­te­ri­ors are the per­fect back­ground for the con­trast­ing colored high­lights in in­lays, cladding and graph­ics. The idea was to cre­ate a space that’s mod­ern but not in­tim­i­dat­ing at the same time. “A place where ev­ery­one can feel com­fort­able. Just as much as there is a move­ment for de­sign within reach there is also a move­ment for food within reach with ap­proach­able food that peo­ple can re­late to (com­fort food) in an easy breezy space,” ex­plains Paolo Campillo, Gen­eral Man­ager, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sen­tral. De­sign agency Ed Poole & As­so­ci­ates chose a bold ap­proach based on the de­sign brief by Star­wood Ho­tels & Re­sorts for Nook. Walk­ing
