The Petronas Towers are a landmark in Kuala Lumpur that cannot be missed. The two towers were considered the tallest in the world from 1998 to 2004. They were designed by Cesar Pelli and completed in 1998. The two towers put Kuala Lumpur on the architectural radar and evoke the richness of the country’s culture. It’s not just the height of the towers that makes them stand out. It is the unique concept that Pelli came up with by incorporating Islamic motifs and symbols into the design process.
The inside of the Petronas Towers is designed to pay homage to the country’s local handicrafts and weaving patterns with a unique combination of stainless steel and glass, finishing the building in an Islamic pattern. Each floor plat is based on Islamic geometric shapes of two interlocking squares, creating the shape of an eight-pointed star. These geometric shapes represent essential Islamic unity, harmony, stability, and rationality principles. A bridge connects the two beautifully designed towers and can move independently in case of strong winds.
Inspired by the modern and reflective Petronas Towers, we used a silver area rug as the show’s star. Dark Gray Seagrass Rug by Talk Carpet is a part of the A New Wave collection, which interprets the untouched Danish West coast in three design stories about the dramatic landscape. This silver area rug adds just the right amount of texture and beauty to any design project.
We decided to stay in the gray color family regarding the material board. Therefore, we included various gray tones like Wall Street by Benjamin Moore, Morning at Sea, and Cadet by Sherwin Williams. We also wanted to play with textures and patterns to bring some dimension to the board. This is where Casablanca Terrazzo Fun by Roca, Monclair by Vermont Quarries Corporation, Argos Black by Thorntree, and Argento Marble by Materials Marketing come in. Lastly, we included Polished Smoke by Decorative Ceiling Tiles to bring more of that metallic silver that inspired us from the beginning.
