American luxury hotel brand Morgan Hotel Group has opened its first Mondrian hotel outside the United States in London, and its a feast for the eyes.
Designed by Design Research Studio under the creative direction of Tom Dixon, the iconic building boasts 359 guest rooms and suites, stunning riverside views, two bars, an expansive restaurant, a maritime inspired 56-seat cinema and a gorgeous spa.
Embracing the building’s heritage, the Mondrian London At Sea Containers boasts a number of nautical features including a dramatic, handcrafted copper hull sweeping from the entrance through the lobby into the restaurant, which is named Sea Containers and is headed up by New York’s Seamus Mullen.
The rooftop bar is overlooking large parts of London and Dandelyan, and many of the rooms offer views of the river and the city. With the age of transatlantic ship travel as a departure point and ocean liner cabins as his inspiration, Dixon has created fitted and well-thought-out rooms, incorporating metallic and brass throughout. In addition, each room features bespoke furniture from Tom Dixon and a one-off piece of art on the wall. In the mini bar, guests will find bespoke Dandelyan cocktails mixed by Ryan Chetiyawardana.
The ground floor of the hotel will host the new Lazarides Editions gallery, presenting exclusive artist book launches, bespoke exhibitions, and independent screenings in addition to a revolving curation of notable print editions.
