The Accor Group invited BOND to create the brands and stories of six new culinary adventures they were launching at the new Fairmont Doha.

Situated in the Katara Towers, this majestic new flagship destination was a landmark in its own right. The Fairmont Doha definitely had an impressive location on its side. They wanted restaurant brands that also go above and beyond expectations.

For over 18 months, we worked together to build the bespoke visual identities and brand narratives of the dining concepts for the Fairmont Doha and its sister hotel Raffles Doha to create a connection between these unique culinary experiences and the guests.

Cyra menu

Cyra (a Persian word for “like the moon”) is nestled between the two curves of Doha’s new architectural wonder – a luxurious shisha experience in a botanical garden. Our approach was to extend this moonlit garden into our identity.

Our intricate brandmark inspired by this garden of botanicals under the night sky was developed from original illustrations of herbs and perfumed fronds of wild flowers by artist Melpomeni Chatzipanagiotou.  Each one reflects the plants and flowers that grow in Cyra’s garden, the ingredients featured in the shisha menu,  the fresh Levantine food and the zero-proof cocktail menu. 

dôme. sweetness and light.

Dôme. Adding sweetness to an afternoon tea ritual. Every hotel worth its salt has a lounge. The Fairmont Doha’s is particularly impressive, even for a place where luxury is ubiquitous. It deserved to be famous.  

The distinct curved glass roof that illuminates the chic atmosphere and sugar-light, Parisian-inspired afternoon teas led our thinking. The brand name we created? Dôme.

The Dôme wordmark is inspired by the restaurant's architecture, which prominently features (you guessed it) a grand dome.

Our design language and neutral palette represents a simple and sweet world immersed in sugar. Embossing inspired by melted, sculpted frosting and sugar sprinkles give each menu meaning.

Privée. Raising the bar for beach clubs. Our brand for the hotel’s island beach club was created around the effortless chic and carefully considered nonchalance of the Mediterranean.

Privée is a private spot where those in-the-know are invited to express their joie de vivre, day and night. The crystalline waters inspired our direction, as did the memorable sunsets that shift into starry skies. This is a brand that’s proud of its location, so abstract patterns to form silhouettes were directly taken from the shape of Qatar’s coastline.

A unique experience is hard to communicate without a powerful brand or compelling narrative. Privée draws on the exclusivity of high-end Mediterranean clubs, while forging an impactful vibe of its own.

Provok. A story of fire and ice. The new Asian restaurant in the Fairmont Doha was a space with more than its fair share of drama.

Two floors, two concepts. Two contradictory ambiances and two provocative experiences, where fire meets ice. An ice counter for sushi, sashimi and beyond, plus provocative Asian cuisine. It had to be clear to guests that this was a new experience.

What’s more, this brand needed to be big enough to potentially be rolled out to any one of the Fairmont Hotels worldwide.

This lifestyle destination is both edgy and upbeat, dynamic and intense, yet refined and sophisticated — provocative. Leading to our brand name - Provok.

Textured patterns inspired by fire, molten lava and ice gradients were created for a number of different touchpoints, from the different menus to social media and packaging. 

Staying close to the restaurant’s vision, we made sure that the brand was seamlessly integrated with the incredible fire-and-ice-themed interiors, so guests could immerse themselves in this world of opposites.

Vaya! means “Let's go!” and is a name that sums up this vibrant Latin Mercado. A colourful Latin work by Rogério Pedro featured in the restaurant can be seen in different ways across the brand.
