The Rocco Forte Collection engaged Martin Brudnizki Design Studio to design Oro; the Italian restaurant featured in their hotel venture in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Inspiration for the restaurant stemmed from the classic architectural pattern of the sunburst which led to ochre polished plaster, limestone flooring and gold mosaic and mirror detailing to be used throughout the space alongside custom designed dining chairs and banquettes in aubergine and rose-coloured leathers. Above the bar, the venue features a large bespoke chandelier specially designed by the Studio for the project.
