Nobu Hospitality partnered with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, Meir Teper, designer David Rockwell, and contributing members of Caesars Palace at the original Nobu New York City location on June 11 to give a teaser look at the brand new, first ever Nobu Hotel, opening in Las Vegas in late 2012. Aside from the sneak preview of the hotel and room design, the group announced that reservations could be made beginning October 1st. Celebrity Chef Matsuhisa and his team of designers are confident they have successfully blended the fun and energetic Nobu lifestyle with the chic, lavish lifestyle and values of modern Las Vegas.
Surfaces will be comprised of wood tiles that extend through the elevator foyer and into the cabins – a single gesture that defines the entire hotel space. Schindler PORT elevator technology will transport hotel guests comfortably and efficiently using sleek touch-screens and a powerful traffic management algorithm resulting in fewer stops, less wasted energy and greater handling capacity. Hallways will feature patterned carpets designed to reflect elements of cherry blossoms and Japanese Zen gardens along with pleated wall coverings and custom fixtures inspired by origami.
“We have created a distinctly Japanese experience in the heart of Las Vegas with the first Nobu Hotel, but with a playful interpretation of Nobu’s style and the Vegas bravado,” said Rockwell, founder and CEO of Rockwell Group. “Using the grand canvas of a hotel, we were able to elaborate on the use of hand-crafted, curated materials that create a luxurious effect and provide a world-class Nobu experience.”
