Once again, ARTASA has proven its expertise and its willing to be active in the Middle East by designing the artworks of the new Ramada City Center Bahrain.
Strenthening more than 10 years of experience in the hospitaly industry in the MENA market, ARTASA, the French Art Design company, has that time designed impressive paintings for the new Ramada City Center Hotel at Manama.
Mr Riadh SIFAOUI, Art Director at ARTASA declared: “It has been a real pleasure to work with Mrs. Sue Henson, the interior designer of the project. The delivered artworks combine authentic and modern styles. They highlight ancestral themes : the geometric patterns usually used to decorate the Islamic buildings. There are produced with traditional know-how: the gilding and the screen printing techniques. The interesting point is also in the final rendering of the artworks: they showcase modern forms and contemporary finishing touches.” He added: “ Because we nurture the ambition of creating genuine “Signature Interiors”, we have designed our Islamic Art collections to offer suppleness and richness to our customers. Thanks to this, Mrs Henson has had the opportunity to customize all the artworks of the Ramada City Center Bahrain hotel . ”
Mrs. Sue Henson, Design Director at Summit Interior Design said: “I was introduced to ARTASA artwork at the Dubai Hotel Show in 2014, and was determined to involve them for the new Ramada City Centre Hotel in Bahrain. We specified three different styles of artwork for the project: handmade paintings showing old mosques in a contemporary way, art pieces showing traditional geometric patterns highlighted with colors and contemporary finishes, and 3D ceramics painted and delicately gilded by hand. I particularly liked the contemporary colored Islamic gremetric patterns which we used through the corridors to the hotel guest rooms. Since we had designed three different colour pallets for the corridors to define the smoking, non smoking and executive floors, I thought it would be complexe to communicate and develop the range of colours required within each artwork to match the various schemes. However working with ARTASA was very easy, they developed the colour pallets for the islamic patterns perfectly and the communication was quick and very professional. All types of art were finished with high quality frames with lock fixing, perfect for hospitality environments and appreciated by the operators. We will definitely be specifying ARTASA products in our future projects.”
