From the architect. The idea behind Rockwell Group’s overall design vision for the West and East Lobbies, The Chandelier bar, Marquee nightclub, Jaleo restaurant and 3,000 guest rooms in the new Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas was to redefine the total experience of Las Vegas, from arriving to eating to dancing to sleeping.

The West Lobby is a kinetic space, centered around 8 giant central columns wrapped with mirrors and LCD screens. Rockwell Group’s LAB installed 384 displays on the columns and 26 behind the registration desk to create a platform for a variety of customized immersive digital experiences in the space.

Off this lobby is the dream-like Vesper bar with a ceiling covered in metal mesh to look like a cloud, and shimmering silvers and whites throughout the space.

The Chandelier is a 3-story multi-layered, lounge and bar, covered with an undulating string and crystal curtain, which creates the sense of a fantastical inhabited chandelier. The LAB created a series of digital programming for both layers of strings, creating separate interactive experiences for viewers walking by and guests inside.
