We invited LomaManalili to tell us more about the firmand the services it provides. Best Bespoke Furniture & Interior Design Firm 2017 Established in 2010, Arte Vivo is an interior design consultant which also offers bespoke furniture design, landscape architecture, signage and wayfinding design. A special team is dedicated in providing services for architectural and interior visualization for other design firms, interior designers and architects. The company, a subsidiary of Pacific Traders and Manufacturing Corp, owns the factories that provide custom made furniture and interior soft furnishings to ensure their quality. Loma outlines how this quality focus is what sets the firm apart from its competitors and marks it out as the best option for its vast array of clients. “Here at Arte Vivo, our clientele includes architects, interior designers, retailers, hotel operators, contractors, government agencies, property developers, procurement companies and private individuals. As manufacturers, we manufacture for high end brands such as B&B Italia, Ralph Lauren, McGuire, Ethan Allen, William Sonoma to name a few.

For the Middle East market, we have provided our services and furniture to Rosewood Hotel, Grand Hyatt Capital Gate, St. Regis Saadiyat, Armani Hotel, Rotana Hotel, Sheraton Burj Al Salaam, among many others. “In order to ensure that this vast array of clients receive an exceptionally high standard of service, Arte Vivo stands for specific notions, which include customer intimacy, design innovation, flexibility in execution and convenience. All of these contribute to the single strongest service our brand brings our clients; the ability to create living art.” Alongside this focus on quality, Loma firmly believes that the firm’s wide range of services help it to stand out from the competition, as clients are able to work with one provider throughout the entire project. “What makes Arte Vivo unique from other design firms in UAE is that our firm is a “one stop shop”. Our strategic alliances ensure a complete scope of services allowing our clientele to avail of turnkey services that provide the ultimate in convenience and seamless service. With our world class manufacturing facilities, quality assurance protocols and integrated interior design, architectural and visualization services, Arte Vivo is well positioned to deal with every step of the design and delivery process. “Thanks to the extensive array of services we are able to provide, we can see our projects from vision to implementation, offer the benefits of lower costs and faster turn over giving our clients the flexibility through involvement in the furniture manufacturing process. We also provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the furniture we design or fabricate are produce in the same factories that manufacture quality products for some of the best brands of the world.” The UAE specifically Dubai is highly urbanized and has such a dynamic growth over the years. It is a melting pot with over 200 diverse nationalities with expats taking the majority percentage of UAE’s population. With this, it seems like Dubai is an ongoing construction site of high rise buildings and towers, residential and leisure property developments and mixed use developments to cater to the needs of the growing population for both residents and tourists. These provide many chances for firms such as Arte Vivo, as Loma discusses. “Within our current market there is such an immense projections and potentials for us but then flexibility is the key. Strong cultural elements are at play and taste is highly subjective. This continual influx of diverse influences from around the world has not come without its obstacles. This has a great market impact on our work from interior designs to the furniture we use every day, but our biggest challenge is to explain and make our clientele understands the differences and values of products made with true craftsmanship. It is not because something looks the same that they are the same, and we are constantly striving to highlight the quality of our work.” Currently the firm is working on two big hotels for Expo 2020, and the future will be just as invigorating and prosperous as it seeks to grow even further and support a wider range of clients, as Loma concludes. “Moving forward, Arte Vivo is expanding and adding on more staff and would soon open another branch in Abu Dhabi for accessibility and to cater to the request of our clients. This provides us with many exciting opportunities which are keen to take advantage of.” Company: Arte Vivo FZ-LLC Contact: Loma M.
