THE KARL LAGERFELD is the world’s first and only hotel with interiors entirely designed by the late fashion legend. Located at the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau (GLP), the 6-star hotel tower encompasses 242 guest rooms and 29 suites of multiple types.

Superb amenities include the award-winning Portuguese restaurant Mesa, the Book Lounge inspired by the designer’s home library, the stylish Spa that fuses beauty and healing, and two Swimming Pools with stunning décor incorporating oriental elements, to name a few. The exquisite and luxurious setting offers guests an unparalleled immersion into Karl’s unique taste in modern Chinoiserie design infused with his inimitable fashion sense.

Appointed as the Executive Interior Designer, the boutique hospitality studio CHIL Interior Design (CHIL) of B+H, a global design and consulting firm, was commissioned to oversee the delivery of Karl Lagerfeld’s striking design concepts, from his bold new vision of luxury hospitality design to every single fine detail visible by the guests.

Working closely with the designer himself and the property’s owner, SJM Holdings, throughout the making of this one-of-its-kind masterpiece, CHIL perfectly captured the essence of Karl Lagerfeld’s vision and added value to the successful delivery of the project through its leading expertise in global hospitality interior design.

The interior of THE KARL LAGERFELD exemplifies Karl’s lifelong fascination with, and inexhaustible exploration of, design and style. Through the hotel’s design, Karl expresses lifestyle pleasures through a lavish and eclectic blend of Chinese and Western luxury manifesting the designer’s cosmopolitan philosophy and distinct artistic vision.

Prominent symbols in Chinese culture including the peony, phoenix, and jade inform the design, which unfold throughout the hotel as guests enter and embark on a journey of style, rejuvenation, and splendor.

Upon entering the lobby, the guests will be amazed by the creative combination of bold colors and iconic patterns. Chinese elements are expressed through diversified forms, from the noble color tone consisted by black, gold, and red, overscale graphics, glittering texture, to the unusual shapes of custom-made furniture. Their extraordinary proportions and composition represent Karl Lagerfeld’s sophisticated reimagining of modern Chinoiserie via traditional craftsmanship

Karl’s precise attention to detail is reflected throughout the intricate and opulent flourishes that inform the project’s immersive design. CHIL meticulously executed the project with a profound understanding of Karl’s core aesthetic that reaches beyond his widely celebrated style in fashion.

Working with a perfectionist who has superlative attention to detail requires an equal adherence to perfection. With each pattern, material and design element personally conceived of or selected by Karl, CHIL coordinated a seamless integration of artistic design concepts with technical aspects.

From the planning to project management, quality control and final delivery, CHIL merged Karl’s high concept vision with flawless execution, delivering a fashion hospitality project that dazzles guests through an exploration of the legendary designer’s boundless inspiration.
