Reflecting the Nautilus design, the ceiling displays a “Starry Night’ installation created from 84 LED lights, accentuating the sheen and elegance of the sports cars on display. The walls that showcase pieces in carved ceramics and blown glass, from London-based artists Vezzini & Chen, will also lure customers into visual extravagance with a stunning Letv 120” 4K Ultra HD, LED-LCD TV screen that is one of the largest in Europe.
