Danzer Linea at the Luxury Kempinski in Munich

New rooms and suites to mark five-star hotel’s 160th anniversary

To mark its 160th anniversary, the luxury five-star Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski in Munich, Germany embarked upon an ambitious refurbishment project. Created by star designers, the new interiors made extensive use of the solid wood surface Danzer Linea from international hardwood specialist Danzer.

Star designers Pierre Court (Pierre Court Design New York) and Colin Finnegan (FG Stijl) created the concept for the renovation work carried out at the luxury five-star Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinksi in Munich to coincide with its 160th anniversary. The redesign for the rooms and suites is expected to underpin the status of this exceptional luxury accommodation in the Bavarian capital for many years to come. In total, around 14,000 m2 of Danzer Linea made from European oak was used in the interiors. The wood surfaces produced by the international hardwood specialist are suitable for doors, wall coverings, wardrobes and ceiling elements in a range of thicknesses.

Danzer Linea for luxury interiors
“We were delighted to win the contract to fit out the luxury Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski in Munich,” said Eckart Schmitt, head of the Danzer Specialty Division. “Since the product was first introduced, we have installed Danzer Linea in a wide range of different projects worldwide. The fact that Danzer Linea is now helping to create an exclusive ambience in one of Europe’s finest hotels shows how versatile this product is.”

Advantages from procurement to processing
Danzer Linea veneers stand out for their even, linear rift-type aesthetic. Made from natural hardwoods, they exhibit a uniform depth on all wood surfaces and reflect light in line with the natural grain and pattern of the wood. “The consistent visual appearance, the extra-large sheet size of up to 3.60 m and the flat surface not only mean that Danzer Linea creates a great-looking finished product; it is also easy for producers to procure and process the material,” Eckart Schmitt concludes.
