Steeped in the moody mythologies of a lost era, the Apollonia startles tradition with supernatural beauty.
600 ft2 / 55 m2
Set piece to intimate, idea-frenzied victuals, the Apollonia regales in bohèmian rapture, nurturing psychic connections among intellects, aesthetes, and empaths. Rich lacquered woods, églomisé, and caned mahogany revel in ambient absinthe- and aqua-hued horizons.
In the Apollonia Dining Room, the artworks serve as poetic contours, waxing and waning with a kind of experiential spiritualism as one revolves around the space. Their synchronicity with the room’s furnishings and other design elements is unorthodox, almost coincidentally psychic and perhaps even somewhat inexplicable. Yet the coalescence is palpable, invigorating the space and its guests with a generative energy.
For the Apollonia Dining Room, WHITE DIRT conjured the GALA chandelier, a new concept developed by designers Dana Harel and Frank Merritt. The imaginative centerpiece evokes the fluid forms and dreamlike juxtapositions of the surrealists, directly referencing works from Salvador Dalí’s classical period while also lifting allusions from Richard Serra to Rainer Maria Rilke to Schiaparelli haute couture.
