Fairmont Pacific Rim
Our goal when designing the interiors of the Fairmont Pacific Rim Lobby Bar and Oru Restaurant was to provide a highly integrated design that would set the space apart, while creating a truly unique experience for hotel guests. When challenged to design a custom Fazioli to complete the project, we set out to ensure that it would become the centre of gravity not only for the lobby but for the entire hotel. Handcrafted in Italy, with an intricate and organic cut-out pattern, the piano’s design plays off of the 180-foot-long origami light sculpture that soars above, while providing a strong visual element to draw guests into the lobby.
