11 Feb Room with a View – Indigo Pearl, Phuket
The site of Indigo Pearl was a tin mine in the 1930’s and in tribute to his ancestry, Wichit Na-Ranong, owner and Managing Director of Indigo Pearl, used tin mining as a unique and personal source of inspiration in the creation of the resort. In collaboration with Bill Bensely’s Design Studios the Indigo Pearl in Phuket is a striking, poetic reminder – of raw beauty in a rich, bygone era.
The unique style of the resort could be described as ‘industrial chic’ with steel floors and columns, steel furniture, french 1940’s factory lamps and leather “cone of silence” love seats used extensively throughout the resort. Unique characteristics of the Indigo Pearl such as the top hung garage door like dividers in the rooms, the steel columns and floors, and the extensive collection of sculpture throughout the resort were produced by the Australian artist, John Underwood and his atelier
