The Art, Colours and Music at Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park

The Art at Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park is centred around the Cessna. The plane, hangs in the lobby as soon as one enters and is an immediate and striking point of interest for anyone that walks in. 

The Cessna has inspired the art around Aloft. The hotel exudes a warm, airy and bright vibe. Colour, light, fixtures and music are used effectively to enhance the key philosophies of Aloft. The art in aloft has been classified into two broad themes. One being Cessna and the other being innovations and inventions, that enable our current technology dependent lives. The evolution of the telephone, simple mechanisms like the wheels, air balloons etc. to an observer an element of these themes reflect in all the works of the celebrated artist Thotta Tharrani in his works at Aloft.

As Aloft Bengaluru revolves around the theme of Cessna, the art was intricately developed to compliment the theme. The artist has taken the direction of abstract representation of Cessna and ensured that this element has been carried out in all artworks around aloft. The art continues at the Lobby and the Nook art which is around the theme of Travel on Cessna. The theme is continued in the Presidential Suite too. These works capture the essence of a traveler like clouds, water, Cessna flying over sea, over a landscape etc. The artist Thotta Tharrani, is someone who loves travelling, and these works represent the various aspects of a journey. It is for one to reflect upon the traveler within him. This message has been realized in various mediums like an acrylic sheet, acrylic on canvas or as an acrylic stencil with the mirror background

There is a Galleria of artwork at Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park which has works that highlight the role of inventions like the Watch- The artist is an avid collector of watches. Always fascinated by watches from the early basic design like sand timers to the modern contemporary ones the artist in this piece reflects on the amazement of the invention and the evolution of the same.There is also a segment that features the invention of the Air balloon- For a viewer, transit in air balloon might seem simple but to one who has actually been in one will understand even the simplest mechanisms require a skilled navigator or its easy to drift. 

Even the Nook, which is the main dining area is inspired by colour and design. Taking inspiration from the traditional Mumbai Dabbawalas, Nook interprets the age old Tiffin concept with a modern twist within a fun dinning atmosphere. Urban cool d├ęcor in a nature-inspired green and white palette provides a refreshing environment for a selection of healthy and tasty Indian and international fare. Settle into one of the plush seating arrangements with sofas and armchairs or community tables with high stools and enjoy great tasty food
