Roar for Finasi

Architectural Digest (UAE) - - Art Of Dining Escape -

“We wanted to bring the street cafés of the UAE to the heart and cen­tre of such a so­phis­ti­cated set­ting like Art of Din­ing,” said Pallavi Dean, the founder of in­te­rior de­sign firm Roar who col­lab­o­rated with Finasi to cre­ate a high con­cept take of the side of the city that is rarely cel­e­brated. “Look­ing at the ta­ble set­tings, it is ex­actly what you would get at those burger joints, like Ravi café in Satwa,” she ex­plains. “Us­ing ketchup bot­tles, tooth­picks and plas­tic cups often found at these cafes as the cen­tre­pieces, the con­cept brings to life this whole part of Dubai that isn’t glitzy or glam­ourous. It’s so out­side our com­fort zone as a brand,” she says. “Some­times it’s in­ter­est­ing to push the bound­aries.” Dream din­ner guest? My chil­dren on a good day!

THE DE­TAILS: FOR THEIR UAE STREET FOOD CON­CEPT, ROARAND FINASI USED TA­BLE AC­CES­SORIES SUCH AS SOFT DRINKS, WA­TER BOT­TLES AND PLAS­TIC CUT­LERY, AND EVEN PRINTED LAMINATED MENUS TO GIVE THE CON­CEPT AMORE ATHENTIC FEEL
