The illustrious Widder has both the luxury pedigree of a small Grand Dame Hotel and the eclectic charisma of a Design Diva; a masterstroke of modernist influence fused with the echoes of the 14th Century, sitting where else but in the prestigious Augustiner Quarter of Zurich.
Within the original nine Guilder’s townhouses of chocolate box appeal, the interiors have an intellect that draws original medieval frescoes with an Eames, tubular Corbusier and Poliakoff, creating a demure academic style that is very Swiss.
Eloquent, textured finishes marry with the modernist pieces, balancing the strictness of form, whilst parquetry, twisted beams and slanted floors, root the traditional.
This is Echtheit made in Switzerland, housed in tradition with a decidedly zesty, modernist note, whereby the CEO, fashionista & entrepreneur feel equally in residence.
