For the new W hotel in Verbier Switzerland, concrete wanted to provide guests with an unforgettable experience using interiors that complement and contrast the breathtaking scenery around the hotel. Inspired by the dynamic carving of skis through snow, it brings an indelible, distinct New York City glamour to the ski resort in the Swiss Alps.
carve bar: After their daily activities, guests can dance the night away at CARVE bar. This secret bar is hidden in the mountain and can only be accessed by entering a signal red tunnel through the giant staircase. All the walls of CARVE feature signature benches in black leather which continue as upholstered leather panels on the walls and ceiling.
The benches have various depths which makes them appear to be carved out from the material. In the middle of the ceiling a vast field of backlit convex mirrors visually multiply everything that happens on the dance floor.
