Casino de Ibiza has unveiled a new, multi-sensory nightlife experience in which interior design and gastronomy share top billing with premium gaming. In the process it recaptures the luxury and exclusivity of the Mediterranean’s most exclusive casinos, with a distinct Ibizan accent.
The aesthetic of the new venue is far from conventional, drawing upon the island itself as a source of inspiration. “The idea was to create a casino for Ibiza, blending the tradition of the place with the energy of the island,” says designer, Patricia Urquiola. “The result is an atmosphere in which the recurring architectural motifs, materials, fabrics and patterns evoke the Ibizan emprendadas, the gold necklaces that the countrywomen wear on their wedding days as a token of their wealth. The project also evokes the Mediterranean landscape by using wooden trellises that intercept sightlines and allow light to pass through”.
This refined setting plays host to both gastronomy and art, for which Casino de Ibiza has partnered with HEART Ibiza, the new creative experience from the Adrià brothers and Cirque du Soleil, which opens its doors this summer.
The Casino de Ibiza shares a location with the Ibiza Gran Hotel complex on Ibiza’s golden mile. Both are the settings for spectacular artworks by artists such as Takashi Murakami, whose installations will continue to evolve over the course of the season, supplying the finishing touch to the experience.
