Sirio ARIA at CityCenter, Las Vegas, NV.  Tihany Design acting as a design consultant for HKS Architects, was inspired by ‘La Dolce Vita,’ a glamorous era defined by the movie stars, paparazzi, and style of Rome, to create Sirio Ristorante, on the second level of ARIA.  Tihany’s design employs brilliant contrasts using sleek, clean, linear lines reminiscent of Italian design from the ‘50s and ’60’s and juxtaposing them with vibrant interiors filled with bright lighting and vivid colors.

With its open layout, the café is the place to see and be seen in keeping with ‘La Dolce Vita’ attitude and lifestyle. A specially commissioned collection of black and white photographs of Italian scenery by New York-based photographer and artist Bram Tihany, transport diners directly to the streets of Italy and complement the restaurants Fellini-esque impression.
