Kameha Grand Zürich

A vivid reminder that today’s Zurich is no grande dame encapsulated in conservative comfort can be seen at the Kameha Grand Zürich hotel, which recently opened in the westernmost part of the city, now the home to many prestigious companies. Dutch design showman Marcel Wanders created the hotel’s interior. This is Wanders’ second hotel project, following the Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht Hotel that opened in 2013. There, he let loose his hooligan nature to create an interior that could just as well be a 21st-century reincarnation of Surrealism’s granddaddy Salvador Dalí or Alice in Wonderland.

Wanders continued his virtuoso juggling act at Kameha Grand, humorously playing around with all of Switzerland’s iconic symbols, including money, milk and watches. The inscription above the bar reads “If you drink to forget, then please pay in advance”; a gigantic upside-down dinner plate hangs from the ceiling of the Italian restaurant on the first floor; the daily menu is printed on milk-bottle-shaped columns; and the dark wood pepper mill is the size of a ten-year-old child.

By using it on a daily basis (combined with morning runs around Lake Zurich), the waiters and waitresses surely need not waste time going to a gym. “Life is grand” is Kameha’s motto, and it seems hard to find a better-suited slogan for what Zurich currently has to offer.
