Working on Rove Downtown Dubai Hotel, ICE International’s design team worked in tandem with Emaar on the development of the entrance and lobby rugs for the hotel. The designs of the entrance carpets are based on the urban street style and vibrant city skyline of Dubai.
ICE International Business Manager Middle-East, Dineke van Geel, said:
The collaboration with the designteam from Emaar was excellent, which resulted in very new design concepts and ultimately, really different rugs which complement the areas so well – The design of the Rove is very new and refreshing, and I am very pleased we were able to contribute to this new and exciting Emaar brand.
“We simply love to make beautiful carpets and area rugs for exclusive projects. We feel honoured to receive so many requests from well-respected design firms around the world, allowing us the opportunity to create unique and creative rugs for their projects. “For the past eight years we have been developing ourselves in this new market with offices now located in Amsterdam, Dubai and NY, with more to follow.”
