Whether it’s “Gangnam Style” or hosting the 2018 Olympic Games, South Korea is presenting itself as more cosmopolitan and modern than ever before. This new aspect of the country is also evident in the newly-opened Four Seasons Hotel Seoul. Acclaimed design firms and premium international manufacturers such as Kaldewei and LTW Designworks have joined forces here to create a luxurious 5-star property that sets new global standards of design, elegance and service. The bathrooms – featuring the Centro Duo Oval bathtub from Kaldewei, coupled with stunning views through the floor-to-ceiling windows – create the perfect place to unwind.
At the new Four Seasons, Seoul’s unique mix of modern and traditional merges with the hotel group’s exclusive approach to hospitality, producing a breathtaking 25-storey gem. Designed by Heerim Architects & Planners and DLTW Designworks, the hotel has 317 light-flooded rooms and suites, seven restaurant and bars, a spa with spacious gym and a wide selection of event venues.
The modern design of the rooms is accentuated by subtle Korean touches and contemporary artworks to soothe the soul. In fitting out the bathrooms, LTW Designworks opted for the premium manufacturer Kaldewei and its product solutions made of superior steel enamel. “Kaldewei offers an extensive range of unique and durable sanitary ware which complements our design for the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul”, says Su Seam Teo, Partner of LTW Singapore, of their choice for Kaldewei.
