Product description

Hotel Beau Séjour, which first opened in 1905 and has seen several changes of ownership, was renovated and refitted. Lucerne’s Hotel Beau Séjour reopened in spring 2008 with the tagline “Le Petit Grand Hotel”, a witty reference to the establishment's larger-scale neighbours. As a boutique hotel, Beau Séjour shows its strength on a more subtle scale – through the many fine details that can be seen and felt thought the building, and through its fantastic lakeside location.
With a view to adding a stylish complement to the hotel’s historical charm, the designer Daniel Hunziker was commissioned to create a furniture collection for the rooms and public areas. The result was a collection that is not only contemporary but also succeeds in skilfully reflecting the design language of the building itself. Hunziker takes up the style of the late 19th century by presenting a modern interpretation of wrought iron – the basic forms of his lounge furniture, lamps, tables and cupboard modules are made of metal. His solution is a sleek and elegant approach that uses the three materials of black steel, textiles and laminated wood. With different wallpaper or flooring in each room, the modern collection fits gracefully into its surroundings.
The furniture line was manufactured by Girsberger and comprises armchairs, sofas, suitcase stands, dining tables, side tables, desks, bistro tables and bedside tables with integrated lamps, and standard lamps. The frames were produced using solid square black steel bars, and the upholstery using extremely durable textiles. Girsberger’s goal was to create an economically attractive furniture line.
