Located in the Conrad New York, Atrio was designed with the idea of a contemporary New York trattoria. The materials and scale of furnishings designed and chosen were inspired by old world Mediterranean restaurants. Warm walnut is used throughout the space, combined with rich stone and glass. The ceiling is shaped to feel like a light canopy overhead. A series of precisely located folds and pinches in the ceiling’s surface navigates and responds to the existing technical systems of the space, forming an undulating, dynamic pattern. The experience was designed to offer both lounge seating and café style seating, so patrons can have a variety of experiences depending on their mood. The glass along the windows reflects the extraordinary views of Manhattan, and the texture of the glass bead curtains gives the space just the right scale.
