Launch of the Emirates Room at The Palace of Nations in Geneva

The opening was led by the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates at the Mission, H.E Obaid Salem Saeed Al Zaabi, and the Director-General of the United Nations Office in Geneva, Michael Møller. This project was conceived and designed by architects Siavosh Adeli and Joakim de Rham, the former being in charge of the technical and facultative management of the project.

The concept of the new hall revolves around three essential elements in the everyday life of the Emirati people: the sky, the desert and their traditional clothing, always white, composed of the kandura and the ghutra which covers the head.
These elements are symbolised throughout the hall: on the ceiling, where you can see the sky; the carpet on the floor in various tones of the reddish sands of the desert; and in the comfortable white armchairs, the image of a traditional Emirate. Furthermore, other motifs, such as horses and falconry, evoke local traditions.

The Italian company CCM, specialised in interior furnishings for airports and other large public spaces, was the main contractor who carried out the entire renovation. For the accomplishment of the ceiling, CMM entrusted BGL with the supply, installation and integration of the audiovisual technology, which allows the visualisation of the emirate sky to be recreated in six different phases throughout the day.
The most moving part of the inauguration ceremony occurred when the Head of the Emirates project asked the BGL engineers, who travelled to attend the event, to kickstart the audiovisual demonstration which allowed the guests to observe the Emirate sky and the clouds passing over them for several minutes.
