Na Sala Lounge
Giant lamp sets the atmosphere in the new naSala
naSala recaptures its “home” feel as was originally conceived, with red velvet curtains, quilted sofas, ornaments and other items that form a true to life living room.
The façade looks like a red leather sofa on metallic feet, transitioning the parking area to the luxurious and welcoming internal area.
On this same level, the clients can check in in an ample hall, as if they’re guests in a reception. From there, they can go to the Secret Room, with an exclusive bar and comfortable sofas, where smoking is allowed, or they can head to the upper floor through a monumental, elliptical staircase that leads to the dancefloor.
At the floor’s entrance, a large, red bookshelf welcomes the client holding books, ornaments, art pieces and homing another bar. Around it, beanbags and tables compose the lounge apart from the dancefloor. From there, the two big windows that face the horizon can be seen, as well as the community table, the bar, the dancefloor and the loges.
The community table, covered with lead plates, is everybody’s meeting point. Its curved shape with recesses welcomes and allows for various uses.
The dancefloor is at the center, distinguished by a large mirrored dome sustained by a mirrored pillar, forming a huge lamp that lights the surroundings and reflects the brightness of both the people and the lights.
Around it, there is the bar and also the red leather upholstery, the DJ booth and the loges – small rooms with sofas, armchairs and comfortable beanbags, sideboard tables and centerboard, lighted tabletops, with internal compartments to be used as storage lockers. A bit ahead, close to the exit and the restrooms, another lounge also has beanbags and tabletops.
Being at naSala is like being in your own living room.
