Located within JW Marriott Absheron Baku, Azerbaijan, Razzmatazz is a vibrant bar conceived and designed by Henry Chebaane of Blue Sky Hospitality.
The lively design is inspired by the patterns, colours and symbolic nature of Persian and Azeri rugs. A woolen geometric surface, based on Persian floral motifs and reimagined as digital pixels, covers the entirety of the floor. Custom-designed by BSH, the flooring was made in Axminster 80/20 by Brintons UK.
This same stylised motif of a flower cross between a Persian rose and Azeri pomegranate is extended throughout the walls and ceiling. Rosewood veneer from Italian firm, Tabu, has been used for the walls, alongside custom CNC shapes with five different patterns of embossed leathers from US brand, Edelman Leather.
The same leather has been used for the bar front and top, surrounded by marine grade polished stainless steel.
Henry selected a mix of custom furniture pieces from Italian firm, Moroso, and German firm, Walter Knoll to create sumptuous seating areas, while silver oriental lamps and Swarovski crystal skulls designed by BSH and made by Blue Sky Hospitality’s art studio add to the effect.
One of the most important aspects of the bar is its striking lighting scheme. In fact over 1000m of LED connected to DMX technology provides a sophisticated changing scenography conceived and programmed by BSH’s own lighting team.
