A vibrant and eclectic F&B destination, Masti is infused with all the personality of India, without any of the clichés.
The design is derived from the restaurant's name - Masti, meaning mischief and fun in Hindi; the vision for the project was to make it a modern and contemporary destination that is bold, vibrant and buzzing with energy - much like the nation that inspired the concept.
The design created a series of spaces across two floors, each of which offer a unique experience in terms of degree of privacy and dinning style, with colorful take on Indian influences running as a common thread between them. The ground floor is primarily meant for day-time usage, featuring a bright palette and low lounge furniture. A Juice Bar in white marble mosaic, brass and wood emerges as the centerpiece for the zone, a refines take on the typical juice kiosks seen in Indian markets.
On the first floor, a combination of high cocktail tables and plush chairs balances the loosely structured layout of the indoor dining spaces; with the bar counter acting as a spatial anchor, the seating configurations vary from intimate clusters of two and four to banquettes.
The terrace has a baithak - isnpired layout for larger gatherings, with traditional Indian low - rise seating with bolsters. Capturing stunning views of the Arabian Gulf and the city skyline, the terrace seating features contemporized takes on Indian crafts, most notably tarkashi (traditional Indian wire inlay work) and stone inlay used to create Ludo board layouts on table-tops.
The Design is characterized by a vibrant colour palette and whimsical design elements that display the best of Indian craftsmanship - brass lattice screens that delineate private dining spaces, a kolam - inspired floor inlay ( a ritualistic form of hand drawing that uses rice flour), and customer-made glass and brass lighting fixtures.
