The Andaz Hotel in Amsterdam by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders features chandeliers encased inside huge bells and wallpaper that combines fish with cutlery. It’s a world full of luxury and glamour. Today we present you this stunning hotel by one of the most important interior designers in Europe!
The hotel occupies a 35-year-old library building in the centre of Amsterdam and Marcel Wanders wanted his design to incorporate elements of the city’s heritage alongside imagery from historic books.
The hotel combines a mixture of different styles, and it’s filled with furniture and objects that reference the Dutch Golden Age and Delft ceramics, alongside tulips and the colour orange.
The centrepiece of the lobby is an installation modelled on a constellation of stars and planets. Positioned below a large skylight, the suspended objects and lighting are intended to remind visitors of old-fashioned astronomy.
The bell-shaped chandeliers hang just below the installation, illuminating a row of reception desks, while a collection of Dutch ornaments and curiosities are displayed on a bookcase behind.
The hotel contains 122 guest rooms, each featuring custom-made wallpaper. Designed to illustrate the city’s position as “a cultural melting pot”, the designs stitches together pairs of unrelated elements, such as a fish and a spoon.
A restaurant, bar, lounge and library are grouped together on the ground floor of the hotel. There’s also a garden that features tulips, chequerboard paving and mischievous-looking statues. It’s really gorgeous!
