Woods at Sasan
Rhizome was entrusted with creating interior elements for the Woods at Sasan resort. With bamboo, brass, and terracotta as our canvas, we collaborated closely with the resort to bring their vision to life. This resulted in a harmonious fusion of nature and luxury, with a contemporary vernacular articulation.
Bamboo cradle design for Barakat Bundle
