A collaboration in partnership with Amphora welcomed visitors at Art Dubai 2023.

The ‘Secret Garden’ style F& Dubai-based inter-disciplinary studio C’est ici Design puts a chic spin on The Art Bar at Art Dubai this season. Envisioned as a “sweet escape” for visitors, this design collaboration facilitated by marketing consultancy Amphora for Art Dubai, has the ambience of a secluded secret garden.

Inspired by the Queen’s Grove at the Palace of Versailles, this aesthetically designed F&B space breaks away from the purely functional dining concepts presented at Art Dubai in previous years. Integrating soft landscaping, floral arrangements, a bespoke bar and handcrafted furniture, the Art Bar elevates visitors’ experience at the fair.

The scheme by C’est Ici Design combines clean lines, soft curves, natural textures, warm earth tones and greenery to create an idyllic space. The concept also features two “Made in Spain” labels – global sustainable surfaces brand Cosentino and décor concept La Nena Home. The alfresco bar is clad with the terracotta-hued Umber and powdery white Albarium from Cosentino’s Dekton Kraftizen collection. The space also features “Posidonia Green” benches dressed in Cosentino’s hybrid mineral surface Silestone, and a merry blend of contemporary furniture, rustic bespoke pieces and accessories from La Nena Home, cherrypicked by the design team. Other project partners include leading paint manufacturer Jotun and luxury event design and floral art brand Maria German Décor.

In addition to the Art Bar, C’est Ici Design also revamped the dining and lounge area on the water terrace to align with the secret garden scheme
