The room features bespoke finishes, including Bentley Diamonds trimmed in British locally sourced wool on the ceilings and dégradé walnut panels adorning the walls. Each panel is tailored to enhance acoustic performance, featuring geometric lines and curves that cater to different acoustics on the sound spectrum.

Sophisticated Design Elements

Polished mineral plaster finishes on the walls, inlaid with contoured walnut veins around the stage area, provide an enhanced sound experience aligned with Bentley’s design DNA. The signature Bentley diamond backdrop brings the stage to life, creating a visual spectacle that complements the acoustic excellence.

A highlight of the room is the majestic walnut diamond bar, inspired by the Bentley Batur matrix. This sculptural centrepiece, featuring a Patagonia stone top and Bentley green low carbon leather panels secured by knurled rotary dials, adds a touch of elegance and softness to the space.

The ceiling heights are adjusted to create visual grandeur around the stage area, which descends around the bar, accompanied by intimate seating and private dining areas that ensure ultimate comfort and performance visibility.

Bentley Home Furniture Integration

Furniture from Bentley Home, including the Galloway Bench and Ryde Ottoman, is interspersed throughout the room. Each piece, displaying the machine-stitched Bentley B, celebrates Bentley’s skilful use of wood and dynamic lightness, enhancing the luxurious environment.

Chris Cooke, Head of Design Collaborations at Bentley Motors, commented on the project, stating, “We have created an intimate, exclusive club that speaks to the authenticity of the Bentley brand in its execution of luxury and craftsmanship, all whilst elevating the sensory experience for its luxe members. Our finished design gives unparalleled acoustic clarity, whilst naturally incorporating signature design details seen from the locally sourced wool acoustic diamonds to the graceful walnut veins within the stage. Each detail harmoniously contributes to a memorable experience.”
