The brief to us was to take a small hotel nestled in one of the most vibrant streets in Bandra, Mumbai and make it as significant as any other in the world - a one of a kind dream!
Fired by the concept, we were inspired to take on the challenge; what followed was a tomb of research and the entire team applying their head and heart to created 'Le Sutra - the world's first Indian Art Hotel'.
Taking from a palette of Indian philosophy, myth, art form and historic pride, it turned out to be quite a journey as we delved across time in our search of the illusive Indian-ness.
Invigorated by a remarkable concept, our team put their artistically creative minds together in making the creation of this edifice of art an extraordinary journey and crafting the first Indian Art Hotel - 'Le Sutra'.
At Le Sutra we've tried to weave thousands of years of Indian ethos and narrate it through contemporary Indian Art.PHILOSOPHY & ART:
We presented the hotel with the concept of 'Gunas' and named it 'Le Sutra', where the word 'sutra' in Sanskrit means a rope or thread that holds things together, which in this case binds the three 'Gunas' together.
The three levels of the Hotel represent the Gunas which sum up worldview in Indian philosophy. The three Gunas - Sattva, Rajas and Tamas - are present in every individual in varying degrees of concentration; only one of the three Gunas dominates at any particular time, thereby typifying the characteristics, personality and temperament of an individual.
