Wilson Associates brings a revolutionary bar design decor to the Signiel Hotel situated between levels 76 to 101 of the 555-meter-tall landmark Lotte World Tower, Seoul’s tallest and the fifth highest building in the world. Regarded as Korea’s most luxurious hotel, Signiel Hotel offers an extravagant experience for guests and introduces the world to Seoul’s newest sensation…But this revolution is much deeper than the luxury hotel interior, and goes straight to Bar 81 modern bar stools that are exposed to your eyes!
Despite its location at the tip of a skyscraper, almost all of the hotel’s public areas have double-volume ceiling heights—maximizing views and providing the luxury of space.
One of the many design highlights of the hotel is Bar 81, an upscale champagne bar paired with a panoramic sky view. Wilson Associates enveloped the double-volume-height bar in white stone caged in satin brass compartments, a play on the traditional cellars found in Europe. Inspired by the song “Champagne Supernova” by the band Oasis, the team worked with renowned glass lighting makers, Lasvit, to create a sea of hand-blown crystal bubbles suspended over the entire bar.
The drama has always been part of the designer’s storytelling, mastering spaces that have a chance of creating a soul. Patrons to the bar will be able to enjoy Champagne under a sea of ethereal fizzy bubbles.
The hotel’s Korean restaurant designed by Wilson Associates is recognized by Michelin Guide Seoul.
