Woods at Sasan

 We were commissioned to design sustainable interior elements in bamboo, brass and terracotta for the 1000 islands resort in consultation with the 1000 Island team. The elements included brass, bamboo and terracotta mobile installations for the spa, reception and retail areas, and table-top décor elements for the rooms. The above image also features our stunning sunburst accent mirror above the vanity, adding warmth in the space.

Custom-developed terracotta pots In hospitality, creating mood, ambience and experience are of foremost importance. Our lighting and art installations at this beautiful boutique resort, immersed in nature, not only expresses luxury, but also adds that oomph factor, while respecting the context.

We designed a terracotta dessert table and pot installation for the terracotta themed restaurant at the resort. Because of the scale of the table, it was impossible to throw it on a potter's wheel. Instead, the design was created in two large hemispheres which were hand formed in terracotta and joined using a mechanical detail. The table top was crafted in wood and included an induction heating system. As a backdrop to the piece-de-resistance, the table, we designed an installation of cuboidal units which housed differently shaped terracotta pots which together formed an interesting and harmonious assemblage. We also worked on the design of a contemporary thaali for the restaurant, which included a complete set of plates, quarter plates, glasses, and bowls.
