The idea behind Rockwell Group’s overall design vision for the West and East Lobbies, The Chandelier bar, Marquee nightclub, Jaleo restaurant and 3,000 guest rooms in the new Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas resort was to redefine the total experience of Las Vegas, from arriving to eating to dancing to sleeping.
The West Lobby is a kinetic space, centered around 8 giant central columns wrapped with mirrors and LCD screens. Rockwell Group’s LAB installed 384 displays on the columns and 26 behind the registration desk to create a platform for a variety of customized immersive digital experiences in the space. Off this lobby is the dream-like Vesper bar with a ceiling covered in metal mesh to look like a cloud, and shimmering silvers and whites throughout the space.
The Chandelier is a 3-story multi-layered, lounge and bar, covered with an undulating string and crystal curtain, which creates the sense of a fantastical inhabited chandelier. The LAB created a series of digital programming for both layers of strings, creating separate interactive experiences for viewers walking by and guests inside.
The Marquee nightclub revolutionizes the nightclub experience in Las Vegas, with a 20,000 square foot pool deck and day club, a one-of-a-kind multi-level nightclub stage inside, and a series of discrete dance and lounge environments: the Long Bar, the Crypt Bar, the Rotunda Bar, and the Boom Box room.
At the Jaleo restaurant, Rockwell Group Europe took cues from Chef José Andrés’ Spanish roots and influences, with vibrant spaces such as a Paella Grill with whimsical bronze patterns of seafood, olives and napkins on the terrazzo floor; a main dining room surrounded by laser-cut fabric that echoes the traditional Spanish mantilla, and Bar Jose in the back which winks at Spanish surrealist techniques
The nearly 3,000 guest rooms are designed like chic, urban, luxury residences. Each room is filled with custom furniture, and layered in custom materials and finishes to give every guest a unique sense of city living, even if they’re just there for the weekend.
