Designing tabletop concepts for Raffles Seychelles Resort
Glass Studio took part in the Raffles Seychelles Resort opening project by creating dinnerware that successfully translates the style of the property and completes the dining experience offered at this exclusive island resort.
The design of the tabletop concepts reflects sophisticated and island-chic style of the resort. The focus is on natural color palette with browns, beige, and aqua-green to symbolize earth, sand and water. Simplicity, elegance and natural beauty are at the heart of this dinnerware concept, and therefore the shapes are subtly curved and offer delicate flair of beautiful irregularity, while patterns are omitted to preserve the flair of minimal chic.
Dinnerware is designed to match dining venues offered at resort. Raffles Seychelles resort offers 3 dining outlets, with a choice of Mediterranean and regional cuisine and dishes from traditional Creole cuisine, as well as in-villa private dining. Glass Studio created designs that correspond to the décor and culinary offers of each venue.
