 Rose and Abrous partnered with James Beard Award-winning design firm Parts and Labor Design on Panorama Room’s extraordinary 168-seat rooftop bar and lounge.

The elegant, jewel box space evokes a sense of cinematic drama inspired by futurism which can be seen through the large-scale, monolithic chandelier with translucent tubular acrylic set above the Orobico Red marble bar top, palatial black mosaic tile columns adorned with geometric chrome sconces, vintage-inspired blush velvet tubular lounge sofas, and touches of chrome and marble.

Parts and Labor Design custom-made all of the furniture and lighting in the space to bring to life the imaginative aesthetic of futuristic design defined through the lens of decades past.

 Additionally, the space features a custom-designed DJ booth by Cédric Hervet, long time creative director for Daft Punk, and Nicolas Hervet of Hervet Manufacturier which was handmade at their atelier in Normandy.
