When guests come through the entrance of the Fairmont Gold Lounge at Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers on the 19th floor, they are immediately drawn to the unbeatable view of the Caspian Sea and the city of Baku.
Their next instinct, however, is to look at the rather interesting design of the lounge itself, created by renowned interior designers HBA and to wonder at the swathe of stones suspended, precision-placed, above their heads.
Designed to replicate the undulating movement of the sea’s waves, this stone “installation” is actually a collection of quartz brought over from the USA – 7,400 stones to be exact, suspended by separate wires to the Lounge’s ceiling.
