MACRAME – KLEUAH
The wall hanging masterpiece at the DT1 lobby is a 2m height tapestry is made of 1,250 metres of 5 mm silky natural wool and cotton based twist cord using the Arabic macrame knotting technique and drawing inspiration from the Portuguese patterned tiles.
Meticulously crafted by Kleuah, the art piece pays tribute to Ellington Art Foundation by subtly adding the Ellington icon in the pattern creation.
PAINTINGS COLLECTION – TINI MEYER
As an artist fascinated by the concept of public art in public spaces, Tini Meyer’s contemporary painting collection is currently displayed in DT1’s lobby, adding an aesthetic and contextual value to the space.
The abstract painting collection combines beauty, flow and symbolism, and each canvas is unique, creating a mystical quality that traverses through light, texture, colors, and layers.
PALM BOUQUET – KHALID SHAFAR
With an international outlook and passion for Emirati heritage, Khalid Shafar has designed and produced the main centerpiece in the reception lobby of Belgravia to reflect the nation’s local tree.
