ROOM: The Wise & The Wicked office area
INSPIRATION: “The rooms are an homage to a modern woman, a paradox who is both wise about her business and wickedly amusing in her off time. The office area is a creative space where deals are made and contracts signed. In the lounge, accessed through a hidden passage behind custom cabinetry, the mood is dramatic, quirky, and unexpected. As you walk through this vivid feast for the senses, we ask: Are you wise, or are you wicked? Maybe, like us, you’re a little bit of both.” — Both Dotolo and Carolina Gentry
