April 2014, Dubai.
Otium, a leading global residential and hospitality design company, has opened its doors to the Middle East market after much anticipation. With offices already located in Los Angeles, California and Milan, Italy, the prominent Jumeirah Lake Towers location marks their third international location. His Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, PM and Vice-President of the UAE, often cites Dubai as “a melting pot of culture and creativity,” which makes Dubai the perfect fit for Otium.
Paiy Hansra, President of the international firm states “Dubai is more than a kingdom, it is a vision designed to connect minds and create a future. Similarly, our artistic modern living spaces are founded on the idea of “Otium,” which has origins in ancient Rome. Cicero, Horace, and Seneca described Otium as the oasis in a day where a person can enjoy eating, playing, resting, contemplation, and academic endeavors. The synergy between His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s vision and Otium make Dubai the perfect home.”
Catering to developers and architects, demand for the handpicked collections designed in Los Angeles and manufactured in Milan has been robust. Otium is expected to announce several high profile projects over the next several months. Expo 2020, will attract 25 million visitors, create 275,000 new jobs, and require 50,000 more hotel rooms. Otium has both residential and hospitality divisions which has further fueled demand.
