KANUHURA, MALDIVES – Inge Moore and her London-based Muza Lab design team of Caitlin Miller and Nathan Hutchinshave reimagined Kanuhura as a unique island retreat in the atolls of the Maldives. They have redesigned every existing area and introduced new spaces, working from the big picture through to every detail, from creating larger guest villas and reimagining the F&B outlets to amenities such as crockery and picnic baskets and even uniform collections for the staff.
In their ambition to create a truly different destination for this part of the world, the designers took as their starting point the word "GYP.set" N \'jip-set\, a lifestyle that combines the unconventionality of the gypsy fused with the sophistication and speed of the jet set. Familiar with the best things in life, gypsetters are free in spirit and roam the world, finding places to escape. They have an intuitive understanding of modern sophistication and international tastes, and they seek to be emotionally and creatively connected with wherever they land. Kanuhura has become a place full of this bohemian spirit - unconventional, chic and enticingly laid-back.
"Inge Moore and Muza Lab design team found inspiration in the legends, culture and natural world of the islands - their stories, colours and sculptural forms," explains Robert Hauck, General Manager of Kanuhura Maldives. "By bringing these influences into the experience of Kanuhura, we have created a sense of free-spirited timelessness and wellbeing where guests can escape from their normal lives and find a place to create their own special memories with family and friends."
