Hostler Burrows 

Hostler Burrows  will show a selection of his speciality – mid-century Nordic design, including this example of Finnish ceramic Kristina Riska’s hand-formed large-scale works – a gorgeous, listing sculpture whose organic shape in muted tones, as well as its tiles, brings to mind muscle arms or an elongated neck.

Boutique Cafe by Anarchitect Opens in Abu Dhabi http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/decorators-designers/boutique-cafe-by-anarchitect-opens-in-abu-dhabi/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/decorators-designers/boutique-cafe-by-anarchitect-opens-in-abu-dhabi/#comments Tue, 14 Jul 2015 15:44:01 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=1442 Back in 2012, Emirati entrepreneurs Buthaina Al Mazrui and Alamira Noor Bani Hashim co-founded The Dinner Club by No. 57, a rather unusual dining concept in which each month an unexpected location was transformed into a spectacular pop-up event space for a group of people to enjoy a meal by invitation only. The Dinner Club by No.57 soon became the most sought-after dinner invitation in the UAE, taking social media by storm. The mysterious supper club has now finally opened its first permanent space in Abu Dhabi, designed by Dubai-based studio Anarchitect.

Rather than replicating the aura of exclusivity and secrecy of the previous pop-up dinners, instead the designers chose to create a new social and culinary experience that still retains the dynamic, creativity and sense of unexpectedness of the overall project. A simple and refined palette of materials has been used throughout, combining Carrara marble, oak wood, concrete and black-powdered metal. We particularly love the pineapples and cacti on the tables! The new boutique café also has a Secret Dining Room hidden in its heart for the purposes of hosting temporary dinners and other events.
