Mandarin Oriental, Geneva unveils the new design of its meeting apartments to offer callers a unique experience. With stirring views of the Rhône swash and a décor inspired by nature, mountains and water, these redesigned meeting apartments are an inspiring space to work. By also redesigning its apartments and suites with swash views, Mandarin Oriental, Geneva continues its metamorphosis into an ever more ultramodern andeco-responsible hostel, just a gravestone’s gamble from the Old Town.
With unique views over the swash, further than 1,000 square metres of meeting space have been redesigned, offering 11 separate apartments that are ideal for events. The names of the meeting apartments pay homage to literal personalities who have left their mark on Geneva, including Émile Jaques- Dalcroze, Ferdinand Hodler, Voltaire and James Fazy.
All meeting apartments enjoy natural daylight and the larger Rhône swash- view apartments are decorated with glasses on the ceiling to increase the print of space and reflect the daylight. Accoutrements in light wood and sound- absorbing wall fabrics support the peaceful atmosphere.
The conference apartments are modular with portable partitions and can be acclimated to meeting formats and caller conditions. donation defenses are discreetly integrated into the ceiling of each chesterfield and can be opened on command. The lighting can also be acclimated as demanded.
A new gallery for penetrating the couches has been especially designed to allow actors to insulate themselves to work or telephone in complete serenity. Alcoves have also been created to give an intimate terrain that encourages attention.
The commodious and luminous apartments( from 26 square metres), Corner Suites( 80 square metres) and Deluxe Suites( 95 square metres) with Rhône views have been redesigned using accoutrements from Switzerland and neighbouring countries similar as France, Italy and Germany. stretched with contemporary Swiss workshop of art, the apartments pay homage to the history of the old structure, formerly known as the Hôtel du Rhône, to the Swiss geography and to the swash’s course from the glaciers to the Mediterranean. The filmland that beautify their walls were taken by great shutterbugs similar as Rosario Civello, a geography and nature specialist, and Jean- François Hagenmüller, considered one of the topmost mountain shutterbugs.
The apartments and suites with a view of the Rhône play with the nuances and colours characteristic of the seasons. Bright spring and summer colours similar as blue, unheroic and light slate embellish the apartments and Deluxe Suites, while warmer orange and brown tones reflect the spirit of afterlife in the Corner Suites.
The Corner Suites are enhanced by their unique views of the Rhône,St. Peter’s Edifice and the Swiss mounts. A spectacular glass on one wall of each suite reflects the light and creates a harmonious and serene atmosphere. The Corner Suite is furnished like an apartment that invites guests to feel at home the library and the living room with its majestic lounge are ideal for relaxation, and there’s a dining area for over to six people.
