Celebrating 'All Around The World' Skylines Doha
Posted by John Goodland on
In celebration of architecture and some of the world's greatest cityscapes, we are launching the'All Around the World' Skyline Boxes. The Humidor and Jewellery box depict four famous skylines from around the world.
Observing the juxtaposition between old and new architecture in the city, the lid of the Doha Skyline Box depicts an authentic wind tower, a traditional solution for natural air conditioning in Middle Eastern architecture, alongside the modern structure of the Museum of Islamic Art. In the background the skyscrapers of the city rise into the azure sky, with the scene completed by an Arabic dhow boat in intricate marquetry. In a tromp l’oeil design reminiscent of an ancient greek mural, the whole scene is viewed through a row of stone arches, producing a 3D optical illusion.
