Images released of Super Potato-designed apartment for One Palm by Omniyat

designMENA visited Dubai-based developer, Omniyat’s One Palm residential development to view the three-bedroom show apartment designed by Japanese interior design firm, Super Potato, founded by Takashi Sugimoto.

Known internationally for its simple, contemporary spaces, Super Potato also designed the common areas of the building, featuring a palette of natural, organic materials with grey and silver travertine flooring, crown marble, woods of walnut, solid white oak and smoked eucalyptus, with accents of stainless steel hairline finishes.

The natural and clean design aesthetic continues inside, complete with timber wood veneer, a stone wall feature, and grey tavertine floors.


“The original inspiration for One Palm comes from the use of stone, wood, metal and glass to create the feeling of living in the air and living amongst nature. We restructured the visual and physical attributes of materials found from legendary Japanese architecture and tearooms – iron, timber, natural stone, and bricks – to incorporate into our design to enhance the beauty of the space,” said Takashi Sugimoto, president, Super Potato Co.

“I believe this is a new method of expressing natural forms. Furthermore, the importance of our design is the feeling of natural changes around us such as water, clouds, wind and light and how to express these feelings through design,” he said.

One Palm offers owners two interior design concepts. Alongside Super Potato’s design, UK-based luxury design studio Elicyon has also designed a separate design concept for the project, renown for its One Hyde Park building in London.

Yesterday, (Sunday), Omniay also announced that the building, which has been designed by New York-based firm, SOMA, has topped out ahead of schedule. The luxury residential complex will offer 90 units, with views over Dubai Marina’s skyline and the Arabian Gulf.

It includes three-, four- and five-bedroom residences and three triplex penthouses. The building’s architecture, which includes double and triple height spaces and dramatic cantilevers, provides outdoor living spaces as well as a private jetty,which will allow residents to dock their yachts.

The building is due for completion in 2018.
