Isn’t from this century, but Milan Design Agenda has witness beuatiful hospitality projects in worldwide scale, and London in particular has seen interesting hotels openings recently, from the Rosewood on High Holborn during Frieze last year to the high-flying Shangri-La at the Shard, but now they have a new jewel in the city, from Morgans Hotel Group, which is launching its first Mondrian hotel outside the US. And here is where Tom Dixon enters.

It’s a sought-after location, and Morgans knew just what to do with it. The interiors are by Design Research Studio, the firm under the creative direction of designer Tom Dixon, and once there, your eyes will stumble in this dramatic entrance, flanked by a 68-metre copper hull, which extends into the lobby, before tapering off into the riverside restaurant.

The 359 guest rooms feature a palette of subtle greys and whites, with bespoke furniture by Dixon complementing the designer’s signature wingback chair. Thirty of the 43 suites have river views, but the panoramic vistas from the rooftop bar are sure to be the biggest attraction.

Drawing from the signature colours of the Morgans ‘Agua’ brand, the spa architecture color scheme gradating from white through to darker shades to encourage relaxation and calmly leading guests towards an exclusively designed secret water feature. The spa aims to create a feeling of under-water tranquillity, taking inspiration from the cocooning nature of a submarine.
