Juliet is a shimmering bi-level space of gold cladding materials and lacquered furnishings. A “flying carpet” of gold, mirrored tiles is laid over the entire main room and folds over the walls and the bar. The space vibrates with the mosaic mirror, and the gloss black laser-cut ribs lining the walls represent a warping, organic profile. Much like the fluidity of Scheherazade’s tales, the ribs offer a shifting narrative.
The ceiling is a two-layer, laser-cut fixture resting on the ribs. Both layers are patterned in a typical middle-eastern archetype, but in two different scales of magnitude. The top layer is white opposing the mirrored bottom layer.
The space has fragile boundaries and proposes a soft, sexy experience. The seating is made of booths with sensuous outlines, and the upper level extends to the main room to align with the back of the lower booths. The tables are custom made in a sumptuous, full profile, and are lacquered in a deep, lively, Mediterranean blue."
