Designed with natural materials, layers of patterns, indigenously sourced slabs of stone, glass and wood imaginatively crafted, the space focuses on sophisticated informality paired with an eclectic mix of styles.
AnnaMaya’s interiors incorporate Old Delhi in all its glory through sacks of spices, colourful hand-painted glass windows such as those found in Chandni Chowk, and weathered wooden doors -- a scene that is reminiscent of the picturesque bylanes of Old Delhi’s markets. Juxtaposed with this is a brown and white geometrical tiled floor such as the one found in markets and food halls in Europe. These elements help to integrate the local flavour of Delhi with the look and feel of a traditional European food hall.
Larger than life floral sculptures selected by reknown art curator Rajeev Sethi, add colour, form and an interesting dimension to the space. A huge pomegranate with its red seeds spilling out greets Annamya’s guests at the entrance. Each of the artworks represents the edible elements that are a prime ingredient in some of the traditional regional recipes found in the Indian sub-continent.
