Location: Bern, Switzerland
The business hotel Kursaal, holds over 170 rooms, 3 restaurants, a casino and various event spaces, and is deemed as one of the most renowned buildings in the Swiss capital city of Bern.
Nina Mair created an overall design that particularly manages to harbour a cozy atmosphere while also maintaining great care for the existing building.
The created concept is shaped by a timeless style, carefully devised details, functionality and the use of natural materials.
To complete the project we worked with Nina Mair to create several bespoke rugs with hexagonal shapes with a custom made patternt reminiscent of the original wooden structures of the building.
I wanted to have visible handicraft quality for the cosiness of the space and for the feeling that really the rugs are handmade, this is something so special, we don’t talk to much about and maybe people don’t recognised but I think its what makes it special. Nina Mair
The rugs are placed both in the lobby defining relaxed spaces and in the rooms helping to create a comfortable atmosphere.
I really was surprised how easy the collaboration with nanimarquina was. It was a fluent process; it was very nice to work together. Specially the color proves were very quick, and exact. If you create a custom design, when you the first little prototypes its almost like a baby. It was a lovely process. Nina Mair
