Thinking of something unique for floor design ? Get inspired by this artistic masterpiece in terrazzo crafted for The Martini Bar at The National Hotel in Miami Beach’s Art Deco district - my favourite in floor design !
This magnificent frieze for the auditorium wall can be seen at Eros Cinema in Mumbai if you are watching a movie in the mezzanine floor ! A Grand design to compliment the grandeur of hollywood musicals that were seen in this cinema, including My Fair Lady which screened here continuously for almost a year in the 1960s. The sculptural work depicts the toils of stage set design behind the grand cinematic experience. Illustrated from my book Bombay Art Deco Architecture.
Sculpted into the middle of the ceiling and adjoining wall, this fluid alcove lighting concept was employed for Mumbai’s Art Deco Cinema - New Empire, designed in the 1940s. A Deco detail that introduces an innovative expression to lighting design - when alcove lighting is more commonly designed at the corners of a ceiling rather than sculpted in the middle, as seen in this design illustration. Image shared from my book, “Bombay Art Deco Architecture”.
This entrance door for New Empire Cinema in Mumbai, inspired by steamship age design uses a porthole design carved out in a solid teak wood door and sculpted stainless steel panels to emphasise a wavelike theme for the door.
