ACT I. Come sit, sip and enjoy the melody of this season’s RECITAL. Through a contemprary lens we pay homage to the salon’s original architecture, revealed in all it’s symmetry, to truly let it sing. A moody canvas of warm petrol charcoal cascades the walls and millwork to harmonize with the coved ceiling adorned in a 20th century geometric inspired wallpaper aptly named “Symphony”, by de Gourney. Honing in on the early Cubism period, we shadowed Picasso’s steps back to the souks of Marrakech where the room’s Martin Kobus custom designed chandeleir was scultped from the natural spherical form to give a wink to musical notes. A duet of feminine silhouettes and strong pitches of masculinity dance through the space where custom designed furniture in gilded ochre tones, mixed metals, brass structures, and velvet shine. We flirt with the art of the abstract through simple shapes, collage, and the intersection of dimensionality. Old school meets new age glamour in an unhinged place for all to play and be heard. END ACT I – Applause!
