Vadi Authentic Iranian Restaurant
Restaurant within a Hotel
Design of this restaurant is a combination of classical Iranian motives and sharp colours derived from modern architecture.
The core idea of design is to recite classical Iranian tales in a modern language. Attar's seven valleys of love are engraved on wooden partitions in a modern graphic form, and traditional Iranian floral motives ascend on walls from floor to the ceiling. Yet the sharp colours of furniture resemble the modern architecture.
To make it short, the design is a journey from complexity of mysterious Iranian architecture to simplicity of modern life.
