“Room of Isfahanies” The plasterwork of the room of Isfahanies that has been done by the Rouhani brothers in the three years between 1974 to 1977 is the inspiration of Isfahan’s music room of Ali-Qapoo’s palace with Safavid style. The designer of this room, Isa Bahadori, was one of the students of the famous Iranian painter “Kamal-Olmolk”.
