Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is kicking off a multimillion-dollar refresh of all 182 guestrooms and public areas. To create a more modern, residential feel at the hotel-within-a-resort, architecture and design firm Rockwell Group is reimagining the guestrooms and common areas it first designed in 2013. Rockwell Group is drawing inspiration from kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold epoxy—creating cohesion from collage. This element is meant to create a streamlined, lighter and more luxe take on the original design concept.
The focal piece of the new guestrooms will be a custom sofa in a dozen different patchworked upholsteries, from painterly-style prints to muted textured graphics. The redesigned rooms will also have a quartzite coffee table with a gold base and a cracked kintsugi effect, along with additional lighting.
A new custom carpet will have aubergine hues, as well as abstract and painterly-style florals—inspired by 19th-century Japanese artist Tsubaki Chinzan—overlaid with gold kintsugi veining. Guestrooms will also get a statement desk or dining table that will be connected to the dresser by a quartz buffer. The refreshed suites will also get new furniture, rugs and flooring.
Redesigned guest corridors will feature a custom carpet with rippling forms suggesting a pond of koi fish that cluster at each guestroom door and patterns inspired by suminagashi—the art of Japanese paper marbling. In addition, the new inset lobby carpet will depict monumental slabs of marble and agate surrounded by gold veining, with pops of gray, rust and blue.
Caesars Entertainment and Nobu Hospitality—the lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper—recently announced future developments of two new Nobu Hotels and restaurants at Harrah’s New Orleans and Caesars Atlantic City in New Jersey, as well as a Nobu restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
