Plato´s Coffee & Tea Lounge

Plato´s Coffee & Tea Lounge at Atlantis the Palm

Dubai - UAE



Atlantis, the Palm is one of the icons of Dubai’s hotel scene. The hotel underwent a refurbishment under the creative eye of HBA Dubai. Preciosa Lighting was closely involved; creating lighting for seven different spaces throughout the large property.

Definitely the most unmissable installation is the spiralling shell located in Plato´s Coffee & Tea Lounge. To create the illusion of being underwater, a huge number of almond crystal trimmings float around the sea shell.
Inspiration came from the sea for this installation, designed by Preciosa designer Petr Kořínek in collaboration with HBA Dubai.
In the Ossiano Underwater Bar & Restaurant, welcoming diners is a sparkling violet and crystal Stardust wall. With a nod to unique underwater sea creatures, the main chandelier consists of crystal glass tubes in shades ranging from honey to clear. The installation is brought together with a gold and bronze metal finish.

Other luminaries

Public corridor lighting

Preciosa designer Anežka Závadová created three large installations for a public corridor from honey and clear hand-blown crystal leaves.

Imperial Club & Bar lighting

Setting the right first impression was also important to designers when guests enter Imperial Club & Bar. The lighting installation features a mix of optical glass and cracked glass in shades of champagne and amber. The gold and bronze metal finish adds to the warmth of the light.
