Citterio in Vienna
von | 7/13/2015

Jennifer Lopez apparently likes her room to have an ambient temperature of exactly 25.5°C, Justin Timberlake wants a mirror over the bed, and Brad Pitt always brings along his own toilet seat, or so the gossip columns write. Be that as it may, the Presidential Suite in “Palais Hansen Kempinski”, a five-star hotel in Vienna, leaves nothing to be desired. It was designed by architect Theophil Hansen in 1873 in the Neorenaissance style, was modernized in 2013 by architect Boris Prodrecca to heritage standards and the rooms redesigned by Paris’ Studio Desseins.

This also applies to the Presidential Suite, which now awaits discerning guests: Tailor-made dark wooden furniture and carpets in warm reds create a luxurious sense of homeliness. And real relaxation is promised by the bathroom, which boasts a huge tub with an exclusive view out over Ringstrasse, the home of Vienna’s Hofburg, St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Opera. The interior designers opted for a restrained but superlative design with washbasins clad in bright marble, for example. The bathroom design is rounded out by mixers from Axor’s “Axor Citterio” collection. One successful detail: the chromed or platinized metal panel behind the 3-hole basin mixer with its star handles and levers. It particularly reflects the product’s value and durability – on the one hand with materials cut in perfectly straight lines and on the other with its ultimate finishing and superb surfaces.
Indeed, slender bathtub mixers were purpose-designed for the bathroom, and with precisely defined edges and softly curved radii cut a timless and elegant figure.
