Hotel Topazz

As the first "green" hotel in Vienna, the Hotel Topazz embodies eco thinking in nearly every imaginable form, based on a holistic, hi-tech resource-saving philosophy. The building's façade and interior, for example, are made of natural and environmentally friendly materials. The hotel stands out with its large oval windows, whose windowsills can also serve as divan beds. The windows were inspired by a cylindrical silver vase studded with amber gems made by Koloman Moser, the well-known Austrian graphic artist and co-founder of the Wiener Werksttate (1903-1932) - a legendary production community of architects, designers and artists. One of the Wiener Werksttate's main goals was to create art that would be accessible to everyone. Well-known artists of that time, including Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, produced numerous interior objects within the framework of the community. Many of the textile designs and lamps in the hotel draw inspiration from these works. That is hardly surprising, considering that hotel owner Martin Lanikus is an avid art collector and patron.
