The aesthetic appeal -
Alluring all ages, InSomnia is an amalgamation of Colonial Art Deco with contemporary feel. The structure of Art Deco is based on mathematical geometric shapes. It is widely considered to be an eclectic form of elegant and stylish modernism, being influenced by a variety of sources. Designed by Pradeep Sachdeva (Pradeep Sachdeva Design Associates) the design influences are expressed in fractionated, crystalline, faceted forms of decorative Cubism and Futurism, in Fauvism's palette. The bold use of stepped forms and sweeping curves (unlike the sinuous, natural curves), chevron patterns, and the sunburst motif are typical of Art Deco. InSomnia blends with the hotel, which by itself reflects colonial times.
At ‘InSomnia’, the specially designed crockery, cutlery from Sambonnet and glassware from Schott Swiezel accentuate the style and elegance of the place. The quick and attentive service adds to the class of the place. Every element at InSomnia, from the menu to the music, from the cutlery to the services and overall ambience of the bar come together to provide a unique experience. With every aspect created to enhance the overall experience, InSomnia promises to make the magic of bars in Delhi a whole new experience - a truly captivating ‘InSomnia’ experience.
