Studio Aisslinger Samples From Around the World for a Zurich Hotel

PROJECT NAME Zurich Hotel
LOCATION Zurich

The city’s former red-light district, Zurich’s Langstrasse neighborhood is varied, bridging a commercial quarter with a young, artsy scene. It is fitting then that the design of a new hotel within it, the 70,000-square-foot , would be a melting pot of influences and draw from multiple cultural sources. “Designers nowadays are like DJs,” ’s Werner Aisslinger says. “This hotel reflects that with a combination of vintage, flea market finds, classics, inherited pieces, mixed with archetypical new designs.” In the restaurant, Neni, the palette was inspired by South America but the chairs are custom versions of one designed by Aisslinger for Italian manufacturer . Upstairs, seven floors of guest rooms are inspired both by themes from the area’s past and penthouses around the world.

Custom sofas in the lounge were designed by the firm’s own Tina Bunyaprasit. Photography by Jens Bösenberg.
