The Arts Club in Dubai, a sumptuous lounge
The Arts Club, a London-based private club founded in 1863 by a group of artists, including Charles Dickens, opens in Dubai. Designed by the renowned Milanese firm Dimorestudio and housed in the new ICD Brookfield Place building at DIFC, this remarkable venue spans four floors, with stunning architecture, spectacular spaces and bold interiors.
Spread over four floors, The Arts Club Dubai encompasses several lounges, including a cigar lounge and a late-night lounge, private dining rooms, meeting rooms and three restaurants, including two new in-house concepts, seven craft cocktail bars, a library and a rooftop terrace. Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci of Dimorestudio are responsible for bringing the Arts Club’s vision of a multifaceted, luxurious and grand space to life for the most discerning members and their guests. The architectural firm infuses the space with a rich and sophisticated color palette, bold textures and vibrant patterns. Each of the four levels is designed to evoke a different identity and mood, and each room is distinct from the others. All of these elements come together through common details, inspired by the architectural design of the building and complemented by beautiful frames, rich colors, vibrant and saturated hues and precious materials. Lavish fabrics cascade throughout the facility, adding layers of luxurious comfort. Cells vary in size, with large lounges and restaurants for entertaining and socializing, and smaller, more intimate spaces for discreet business meetings or quiet contemplation. The furniture is a sophisticated mix that crosses eras, from historical pieces to contemporary custom furniture designed by Dimorestudio, as well as others from the Dimoremilano collection. Some wallpapers are also designed by the Milanese firm and developed by some of the biggest names in interior design. The club’s design is the ultimate blend of past and present, a perfect union of the contemporary and the classic, which come together to create a decadent scene.
