White Eagle Entertainment Reinforces Spell-Binding Lighting and Sound System Experience at Illuminati, Mumbai

As the name suggests, the design concept of Illuminati Bar and Supper Club is shrouded in mystery which is exemplified in its predominately black and white theme, which is reminiscent of the royalty and power normally associated with these two colors. The narrative of the Illuminati society has been steeped in mystery and intrigue and this is translated to the design by the symbolic triangular shape of the logo.

Illuminati is set amidst the full go of Mumbai, at the sea link. With stellar interiors and eloquent décor, the new part lounge, part fine-dining restaurant, and part nightclub is geared up to set the tone for the perfect night out in BKC.

Creating a space with perfect lighting and sound that offers the warm and relaxed ambiance of a fine dining restaurant that changes effortlessly into a lively nightclub, is not an easy task and a major part of it began with the transformation of designing and sound.

To accomplish such a grand, exciting vision in place, both the owners - Mr. Gaurav Bakaya and Mr. Akhilesh Rao, Director, AGA hospitality, needed to put the plan into action and so New Delhi based White Eagle Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. was brought in to provide venue concepts and plans.

Further, Mr. Arun Kalra of White Eagle Entertainment pulled SLA and Amate Audio to India to design and execute the lighting and sound system along with Mumbai based interior design firm DesignWorx - the multiple award-winning interior design company based in Singapore, which provided an innovative solution to meet the challenges required for space. The Project was managed and executed by Transform Projects Pvt Ltd. located in Mumbai and provided interior design and turnkey interior execution, office interior, design hotels to the clients.

The interiors of Illuminati Bar and Supper Club, along with the table-tops, marble and granite floor tiles and bar counter of the restaurant draw their inspiration from the triangle which has manifested itself in many ways in the flooring pattern. In the black and white marble, it resonates with the three-dimensional faceted mirrored ceiling which creates an illusion of height and space as well as the reflective jalli work along the façade.

“The highlight of the design is the two-dome structure which houses the VIP seating. This intricately designed metal jalli structure is star-spangled with custom designed triangular prism-shaped lighting fixture which has been painstakingly and intricately shaped to illuminate on both side in order to create an illusion of infinite possibilities.” DesignWorx explained.
