The Hab also boasts a signature window installation at the entrance, designed by the internationally acclaimed Indian designer Manish Arora. The installation is inspired by the vibrant colours of the playful festival of Holi and symbolises energy. Its burst of colour and vibrant motifs are inspired by the annual Jaipur Elephant Festival, accentuated using a mix of sequins, buttons, heart shapes and different coloured pichkaris (water guns)” said Manish.
