PROJECT I Commercial Project : Influence SPA
(Manish Malhotra's collaboration from what i understand)Design: CUSTOMIZED "White Square Shell Raindrop"Price: on requesthttp://memoriesofabutterfly.com/?p=69
The bead curtains for Influence SPA Chennai were designed to create a subtle fil conducteur
between open spaces of the various sections in the spa rooms. The role of the curtains was to delineate but not separate, so as to keep the feel of the space open and light. These mobile curtains were placed between beds in Twin Rooms, between bathing and massage spaces, and in some locations creating changing area corners. Keeping with interiors created by Transform Design Interiors designers, the bead curtains were customized in shades of mother of pearl and white. Materials used were high-end, Square cut White Shell and Transparent small oval Glass Beads.
The end effect was ceiling length light curtains dropping down like bold raindrops, creating ease of movement yet adding excitement and texture to the stark white interiors of the rooms. The curtains added subtle play in whites and pearls to an otherwise flat clean palate of the area allowing for it to be an attention piece without being distracting for the customers, providing a pampered soothing environment for a relaxed afternoon at the SPA.
Other materials proposed for this project were Mother of Pearl Acrylic beads available in multiple sizes and strung creating a light rain drop effect. Also considered were posh Crystal Beads in Glass or Acrylic & Transparent Leaf Cut beads.
