Tour #79

Grete Wiesenthal Suite

Spherical, dynamic and with a close connection to nature: Our brand new Suite #79 is a light-footed tribute to the Viennese dance revolutionary and grand cousin of Otto Wiesenthal. Inspired by the soloistic liberating dance posture with which the Viennese and her sisters brought music and movement into harmony and ecstasy during the fin de siècle.

The rhythmic movements of body and textile are reflected on flowing curtains and textiles of the suite. Warm greens found in felt and linoleum, the wood grain of sustainable materials, and the floral wallpaper design by Felice Rix, a designer from the Wiener Werkstätte, all refer to the Wiesenthal sisters' favorite dance environment: the great outdoors. Timeless globe lights, mirror reflections and color accents in bold lemon yellow and cobalt blue provide a contemporary Viennese context.

A dynamic seating experience is created by furniture classics by revolutionary female designers: Swing in the rocking chair by Patricia Urquiola or relaxed reading in the Bowl Chair by Lina Bo Bardi. For dance or meeting appointments of all kinds, flexible table modules, made by Viennese craftsmen, can be arranged spontaneously and agilely.

Once titled Library Suite, the Grete Wiesenthal Suite still features a fine selection of books related to Viennese dance modernism. Today, Library Suite #35 is located on the second floor in a separate wing.
