The newest design from Marcel Wanders is a collaboration with sbe for a new multi-layered hotel in Qatar opening in 2017. The design picks up on local culture and legends giving it a fantastical appearance highlighted by its falcon-like shape, a tribute to the national bird of Qatar. Bespoke designs, Arabic writing, historic souks, local patterns, and falcons, are woven into the design of every room. Elements of gold in the lobby in the form of an oversized gold leaf bell and crystal chandelier, welcome guests while the lounge area feature an enchanted surreal forest. The Mondrian Doha also promises to be a space for the best Middle Eastern cuisine, with over 8 restaurants and bars offering beverages and dishes from internationally-acclaimed chefs. Guests can also enjoy some entertainment at the nightclub, rooftop pool and Skybar, spa, and grand ballroom. The space will be the new destination for extravagant weddings and parties, where every designer can put their own story forward. The Mondrian Doha is a space that is limitless.
