Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Munich
Built in 1858 the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is one of Munich's most luxurious 5 star hotels. The palatial hotel has played host to a number of celebrities and royals including Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher, Audrey Hepburn and Jennifer Lopez.
In German the hotel is known as the "Vier Jahreszeiten" which is a literal translation of "Four Seasons". It is located in the centre of the city on Maximilianstraße, Munich's most exclusive shopping street.
The grand 19th century lobby has a beautifully restored stained glass dome which sets an opulent tone that continues in the antique filled public spaces.
Brintons worked with Pierre Court Design Consultants to supply custom carpets for the large foyer, meeting rooms and ballroom.
Pierre’s idea was to create the design as a stylised sand dune, floating throughout the entire space; he provided an all-over design of bands in different sizes and shapes to fit in to the area.The challenge for Brintons’ designers was to create adequate texture and structure to meet Pierre’s vision. In the end 6 different kinds of texture were created and flooded into the bands, based on Pierre’s brief. The bands were then faded into each other to avoid abrupt transitions, only a few overlapping bands in highlight colours were created with clear edges.
Brintons design team created the geometric design for the meeting rooms, using the same colour scheme as the ballroom. The meeting room design with its rigid and simplistic look built a strong contrast to the fluid and organic foyer pattern.
Many thanks to the Brintons team for the very good work you have done on this project.
