As a stylish boutique hotel with a profound commitment to the arts, Vida Downtown Dubai’s latest interactive installation is a nod to all things creative, luxurious and engaging. In collaboration with Art Space, the exhibition presents a collection of art, culture and lifestyle books from Assouline, a global, artisan-publishing company specialising in premier quality books.
The interactive display features a selection of eclectic and elegant Assouline books from the Ultimate collection, which showcase a stunning selection of fashion, architecture and more. Each book is delicately hand-made, with detailed craftsmanship, making each piece of creative literature a true work of art. In addition to the awe-inspiring intricacy of its craftsmanship, the installation also features a custom designed scaffolding for each book and a unique cover box highlighted by a sleek, white lighting structure that frames the installation with a bold, industrial energy that compliments the soft, sophistication of each book.
Staying true to the artistic vision of Assouline, the exhibition pays homage to beautiful works of art by an overt respect for the product and the process of creation. A notion upheld by the business since its conception in 1994. With each hand-bound cover and the luxurious thickness of each page, readers are transported to another place and time nostalgic of sophisticated luxury – to be appreciated by both casual readers and true connoisseurs.
