A lifestyle destination of its own - Kameha Grand Zurich

Kameha Grand Zurich
Kameha Grand Zurich, opening 28th February 2015, is a true collision of design and lifestyle, offering a plethora of awe-inducing interior design from world-renowned designer Marcel Wanders. 245 incredible rooms, including 6 business suites and 11 individually designed themed suites carry Wanders’ stylistic signature. At the highest level of the property the King Kameha Suite and an exclusive Space suite, completes this striking masterpiece.

Majestic, festive and unpredictable decors act as backdrop for a series of Swiss-inspired elements which continue throughout the property in the form of the exotic Shisha Lounge, classically contemporary Smoker’s Lounge and dramatic Kameha Dome. The inspirational interiors and design focus highlights the property as not just a hotel but a must see destination in Zurich.

Marcel Wanders
Dubbed by the New York Times as the “Lady Gaga of Design,” Amsterdam based Marcel Wanders is a prolific product and interior designer and art director, with over 1700+ projects to his name. Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel has made it his mission to create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true. His work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit and entertain.

Wander’s passion for the property is clear, he says of the project, "Others deliver an interior design, but we offer a reason for a visit, we create a destination. A hotel should entertain, inspire and stimulate. We want the guest to have a lifestyle experience, by creating a place full of surprises and beauty."

Wanders’ chief concern is bringing the human touch back to design, ushering in what he calls design’s ‘new age;’ in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In his process, Wanders’ defies design dogma, preferring instead of focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In Wanders’ universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment.

Bedrooms & Suites
Each one of the 224 Premium and Deluxe bedrooms features unique characteristics brought to life in a myriad of small ways. A series of Swiss-inspired elements, such as chocolate-patterned wall panelling, mini-bars modelled after bank vaults, lamps that resemble oversized cowbells and Toblerone shaped sofas are found throughout the hotel.  Marcel Wanders’ eye for detail can be seen in abundance throughout the 2 Executive Suites, 6 Business Suites and particularly the 11 Theme Suites, which have each been individually designed. The individual suites are the Princess Suite, Poker Face Suite, Ghostwriter Suite, Fair Play Suite, Watchmaker Suite, Burlesque Suite, Gentlemen Suite, Diva Suite, Workout Suite and Serenity Suite. Each suite has bespoke features to complement the theme for example roulette table and Kameha poker cards for the Poker Suite and yoga accessories and scented candles in the Serenity Suite.

Restaurants & Bars
Each space is carefully orchestrated featuring warming woods, a mix of custom-made furniture, tactile upholstery, iconic lamps and stylish sofas. The passion for detail plays an important role in the overall concept. Italian Restaurant L’UNICO and Japanese fine dining restaurant YU NIJYO both play on their traditional features with a stunning open plan live-cooking station and contemporary design with an Asian influence respectively. PUREGOLD BAR offers an elegant, monochromatic space with gold bullion studded walls, modern chandeliers and elegant textures. The two lounges at the property represent cultural extremes, the smoking lounge provides the classical intimate atmosphere of a traditional den, bedecked with deep leather armchairs to sink into. The Shisha Lounge showcases inspiration of a contemporary Arabic nature, with flavours of the orient obvious in the furnishings and wall designs sparking a smooth international aesthetic.

Meeting Spaces
The Kameha Dome is the striking centre piece of the property’s meetings space, this 701 sqm event space houses features opulent red draped ceilings, contrasted against the cool elegance of monochromatic black and white tiled flooring and the additional grandeur of stunning chandeliers. This diverse and fresh design creates an opulent event space offering an idyllic central location, flooded with natural light.
