Design tableware for The Library, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi
About Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi
Hyatt’s new Abu Dhabi property opened in November 2011 on the Saadiyat Island. With 306 luxury rooms, including suites and private residences, this is currently the world’s largest property under the Park Hyatt Brand. Besides luxury accommodation for business and leisure travelers, hotel also offers a wide range of recreational activities (including the Atarmia spa, swimming pools, fitness facilities etc) as well as four multicultural dining venues that promise to create memorable experiences for the guests.
Glass Studio collaborated with hotel’s opening team in creating dinnerware designs for its all day dining venue “The Café”, tea lounge “The Library” as well as guest room amenities. In this post we give you a glimpse at our designs for the tea lounge.
Dinnerware designs for The Library tea lounge
“The Library” is a contemporary tea lounge, offering afternoon tea service, a variety of coffee specialties, gourmet chocolates and French pastries. The lounge was conceptualized as a venue for intimate, less formal meetings. Its décor can be described as elegant and contemporary, featuring clean geometric lines and a contrast of colors between burgundy and beige furniture, as well as orange walls and black marble elements.
Glass Studio created dinnerware pieces that match the venue’s décor and correspond to its dessert-centered menu. Dinnerware designs included cake stands, dessert trays and serving bowls. To match the venue’s style of discreet luxury, dinnerware was designed in clear glass with touches of bronze and silver.
Pieces included round and rectangular dessert stands in clear glass, accentuated by the sophisticated shine of the metal stands and tips of the glass cloches. The pieces are used for dessert presentation and for serving items such as chocolate truffles, macarons and mignardises.
Glass pieces for “The Library” demonstrate how even minimal approach to dinnerware design can create the sense of luxury in food presentation, without compromising functionality and style.
