Straight from the Designer: Mnuara Zubaidildaeyva on her top 5 places in Dubai that she feels have the best interior design

Obviously, I believe that any projects created by us in the studio are Dubai’s best. F&B projects are our forte and speciality, therefore the projects that I have chosen and want to highlight are: Toro+KO, Cubano Lito, Scalini, Nusr-Et and Larte.

Toro+KO

Toro+KO is a high-end Barcelona-style tapas restaurant and bar located in City Walk. The interior is set over two levels and accommodates an industrial chic environment with elements of refined elegance. The main features of this place are bold, graphic and bespoke commissioned artworks that create visual dynamic and visual enhancements of the venue interior.

The mixture of the exposed ceilings with a use of the bespoke intriguing lighting elements, raked concrete walls, natural greenery, poured concrete/terrazzo seamless flooring and industrial styled furniture creates a visual balance and unique experience for the guests.

It is a perfect top spot within the city for drinks and tapas and a great place for a casual evening to be spent with friends.









Cubano Lito

Cubano Lito offers a unique experience of old Cuba and can be found at Ibis One World Central Hotel. The elements combined within the space create a dynamic visual and takes you to the Cuban culture and its people. Exposed brickwork is paired with striking Cuban colours, whilst visually appealing and provoking artworks created by a local artist compliment text graphics and an interesting application of piping. The eclectic furniture and bar chairs are inspired by a local Cuban barber shop, which creates a unique set-up of the Cuban night out. Mojitos and tapas complete the perfect experience.









Scalini

Scalini, found at the Four Seasons Resort, offers high-end Italian cuisine. The venue is designed to represent the character and history found in the original venue established many years ago in London. A contemporary coastal Italian interior has been achieved through the use of a calming colour palette, sea blues and magnolias, authentic terracotta tiled flooring, rustic white washed wood, elegant furniture and warm ambient lighting. The Interior of the restaurant has been Awarded Global Restaurant within a Hotel 2018 at the International Hotel & Property Awards.







Nusr-Et

Nusr-Et Steakhouse is also located in the Four Seasons Hotel. The owner of the restaurant, Chef Nusret Gökçe is better known as “Salt Bae”, who has quickly become a World Wide social media phenomenon. The theatrics created within the restaurant during service are as famous as the food offering and décor itself. The restaurant design represents a relaxed casual atmosphere and creates an instant familiarity with the brand. The design elements include bespoke finishes such as carbonized wooden paneling’s, weathered and distressed timbers, hand cast glazed terracotta tiles, blackened steel, chopping block claddings through to decorative cement renders and creative visually dynamic lighting solutions.







Larte

Lastly, Larte is a casual licensed café and dining venue located in Dubai Design District. Food, fashion, and culture are key design concepts and all elements are evolved into the dining scene. The interior is bold and striking, with an edgy and avant-garde touch. Each corner and wall in this place is a perfect backdrop for an art installation or feature. The venue attracts creative minds looking to unwind with drinks after work, foodies and numerous media events.
