Silk Road Restaurant by Karim Rashid

Silk Road could make you think about the past, but this Silk Road is something else, it is a restaurant at the Vdara Hotel in the City Center, Las Vegas. Its design came into being from a multi-cultural vision and the result was one characterized by plush and  opulence. It is a mostly monochromatic restaurant, golden yellow, but with some spots of color from place to place, if you take into consideration the furniture pieces and the floral motives on the walls.

In every house, no matter it is our home, the hotel we choose to stay in while we go in a holiday or our favourite restaurant,  light plays one of the most important roles. Silk Road also places light on one of the first places: at day the colors of the rooms are emphasized by the natural light, while at night it is the subtle ambient light which creates an intimate atmosphere.

There is a permanent impression of transparency which adds a special touch to the entire place.The wide windows, the mirrors which reveal the details existing in a restaurant, but in a cosy manner, the green chairs which are in  perfect harmony with the walls, every little thing belongs to this place and seems to say “welcome!”
