The TREND Group has applied colourful creativity to the designer curves of the W Dubai The Palm Hotel, transforming the blank canvas of the walls into organic surfaces that catch and hold the light…
In a city full of architectural wonders, the W Dubai The Palm Hotel sits like a crown jewel on the Palm Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks. Since its opening in 2018, the hotel’s dramatic design elements have become a talking point, with their disruptive and distinctive flair. In order to create a design which could mirror both the curves of The Palm Jumeirah, and the beaches and desert beyond, the hotel features a host of curved walls that defy convention. In order to bring these to life, the hotel design team reached out to the TREND group to source wall covering surfaces which could transform this vision into reality.
The artistry of the glass mosaics has always been at the heart of TREND offerings, and are made using the same artisanal methods developed by master craftsmen at Venice’s Orsoni in 1888. With more than 3,500 colours in the collection, designers are provide with almost endless possibilities to create a bespoke, high-end look. As all pieces are hand-cut there is a natural asymmetry to any wall covering, allowing artists and designers to accentuate curved feature walls such as those at the W Dubai The Palm Hotel. This irregularity creates interesting effects on any surface, especially when done on a grand scale.
Due to the impressive variety of colour within the TREND range, the group was also able to create a number of bespoke features, including several striking, multi-hued designs for the interior of tunnels linking key areas of the hotel. Abstract shapes and vivid colouring evokes the shifting light of the desert in one, while another is imbued with a bright, foliage effect to seamlessly blend the natural and modern.
