"The Chakra collection has taken shape around the seven main chakras, stemming from Indian spirituality and designating seven centres of energy in the shape of lotus flowers, each one a different colour. Each chakra represents a world in itself, a sensibility, a colour, an emotion, and a deity… The choice of one chakra over another is not inconsequential; it is purely a matter of intuition and mystery.
Chakras are centres of energy and awareness in the human body. The word “chakra” comes from Sanskrit, the sacred language of Ancient India, and literally means “wheel” or “disk”. As they revolve continuously, chakras absorb energies from without and assimilate them, hence promoting harmony between one’s inner and outer worlds.
There are seven principal chakras or energy centres situated along the spinal cord, each linked to a specific gland and associated with a particular shape, colour, sound, deity and meaning. Each Chakra has a very precise physical and emotional function. Chakras are traditionally represented in the shape of a lotus flower, each with a precise number of petals. The lotus flower is a powerful emblem in India - the plant springs in darkness at the bottom of lakes and grows towards the surface in order to flower in brightness into the purest flower.”
Located in the W Tower in Park Tzameret in Tel Aviv, this outrageously luxurious penthouse occupies three levels and offers expansive views of Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean Sea. According to the project developers, Sky Penthouse includes 6 meter-high ceilings and water feature in the lounge area, private internal elevator, an indoor swimming pool, glass floor terrace overlooking the lounge, three further bedrooms and bathrooms plus maid’s room (all controllable from your iPhone). A private rooftop pool offers an unconventional outdoor entertaining spot for the inhabitants.
Glamor is the main attribute defining the interiors. During day time, there is a large amount of natural light flooding the rooms through the giant windows on each level. As the sun sets, artificial lighting takes over, with stunning visual effects. An array of colors and textures give the place its impressive dynamics; it’s as if we are looking at a massive party zone awaiting guests, rather than at a cozy crib. How do you find this project?
