Kempi Hotel Unveils 5 new Executive Suites
The complete renovation of five panoramic corner suites in Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest, the design for which was prepared by the Hungarian firm Biva Atelier Kft., was recently finished.
A lot of natural light flows into the new suites through the huge bay windows in the living room, and thanks to their location within the hotel, they offer a view of two streets, Deák Ferenc and Bécsi utca.
The suite has a spacious living room, a bedroom, and two bathrooms. The elegant cognac leather-covered sofa can be transformed into a bed. If the guest also books a room adjacent to the suite, they will receive a two-bedroom family suite, separated from the rest of the guest corridor and expanded with a lockable antechamber.
Designers Szilvia Lőrincz’s and Bea Zsilinszky’s vision was to create an interior that fulfills the requirements of business guests as much as discerning leisure travelers in what they call a “contemporary, subdued, but cosmopolitan design environment.” Due to the pastel color harmonies, the new suites are expected to satisfy the tastes of guests of various genders, ages, and nationalities. Work and rest areas are separated, allowing for small business meetings to take place in the living room.
According to the hotel, the design creates exciting aesthetics by pairing distinct materials. The iconic Giorgetti armchair contrasts with the other uniquely designed furniture and echoes the designers’ penchant for juxtaposition: the armchair amalgamates Louis XVI and post-war American industrial design trends.
Test of Time and Taste
“We imagined furniture you will never grow bored of,” the designers noted. “These pieces will stand the test of time and tastes.”
For those who love beauty and elegance, the suite’s sophisticated lighting brings a new dimension. The lights with adjustable intensity, sometimes hidden throughout, radiate calmness and an elevated mood, creating harmonious transitions within the space.
The technical solutions also serve comfort: in the bedroom, the curtains can be drawn and closed electronically; in the bathroom, lighting and dehumidification built into the mirror increase the feeling of comfort.
The suites are decorated with the works of Gyula Sági, a young Hungarian artist living in Berlin, who symbolizes the synthesis of geometric and organic abstraction.
The hotel has a total of 15 Executive Suites available to guests.
