A Conran & Partners-designed ground floor in the Park Hotel New Delhi, India, has been completed with the unveiling of the Mist cafÃ©. The interior work follows the opening last spring of the hotel’s restaurant and bar Fire and Agni. The floor’s functions are linked in a single, curved space with different areas separated by a variety of screens, rather than walls. Mist references the element of ‘water’, while the restaurant relates to ‘fire’ and the reception area to ‘air’. Conran & Partners associate director Robert Malcolm is leading the project, which will now turn to the design of luxury suites, the lounge, pool and pool bar.
The Australian energy start-up Edify was founded in 2015 but needed an identity to match its “established success” and wider work network.
The platform has been developed in partnership with software developers and designers EPAM, and will be targeted at children and their families in Europe and Central Asia.
The visual identity — which includes a new golden logo — (almost) leaves out its famous kangeroo as Australia looks to tell other stories.
The funding is in partnership with UKRI, and will award up to £150,000 to projects which “trial ways to implement refill infrastructure”.
