Bespoke tableware designs for Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha
When creating a bespoke tableware, one of the most important things is finding a harmony between the venue’s culinary direction and the interior style in order to deliver an original and memorable dining experience. Today we share with you our custom tableware designs for the Jazz venue at St. Regis Doha – a perfect illustration of Glass Studio’s tentative approach to creating unique and simply beautiful tableware.
About Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha
Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha is one of the latest additions for the already acclaimed St. Regis Doha hotel. It marks the debut of the first jazz clubs conceptualized under the unique partnership between the St. Regis brand and the legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC).
Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha is envisioned as a the ultimate destination for jazz aficionados, a place to enjoy world class live performances of jazz artists from North America and Europe. New bands performances take place every 2-4 weeks, each band personally selected by the Artistic Director of JALC from New York.
What makes Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha even more special is the unique approach to the culinary offer, with an eclectic the menu that takes inspiration from the jazz music. As the bands performing at the venue change, so do the items featured on the menu!
The food offer centers on the contemporary take on the New York’s style “haute cuisine” and New Orlean’s traditional comfort food. The menu features “downbeat and upbeat” seasonal small plates that offer a novel and original gourmet interpretation of some of the well-known dishes such as burgers, crab cakes, mac and cheese, jambalaya, barbecued ribs and other comfort foods.
The menu is paired with a wide selection of classic New York cocktails and exclusive new world wines.
Bespoke tableware designs for Jazz
Glass Studio had the honor of creating a range of custom made glass tableware for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha. Our designers worked very closely with the venue’s F&B manager to create one-of-a-kind tableware that perfectly carries our the culinary concept and captures the style and essence of the jazz venue.
The colors selected for the bespoke tableware designs were based on the color palette that dominated the interior. The dishes were designed to feature a combination of metallic matte rattan gold and Andora wine red colors.
To pay homage to the heritage of the Jazz at Lincoln Center, Glass Studio developed a special custom pattern exclusively for this project. Our designers created a bespoke pattern based on the printout of the notes for a jazz piece titled “Love eternal” (a piece that a famous jazz musician dedicated to his wife). Not only did this add a stylish and unique accent to our plate designs, but also created a sentimental link between the venue and the tabletop, giving it something special – a soul.
The selection of shapes for the dining plates and dishes was done in collaboration with the venue’s chef and featured a variety of round and rectangular plates, sectional dishes, compartment plates and snack bowls. This diversity of shapes enhanced the food presentation and allowed the tabletop to be all the more interesting and memorable.
Our bespoke tableware designs for Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha reflect our signature “total concept approach” that strengthens the link between the tabletop design and the interior and never fails to “wow”!
