Mandarin Oriental Prague celebrates Moser, Czech premier crystal manufacturer with new suites
Mandarin Oriental, Prague recently unveiled the two new signature Moser Crystal Suites. Located in the Baroque wing of the hotel, the suites are distinctive for the original architectural features – vaulted ceilings, tall windows and original parquet floors – but also for their sumptuous ambience. This essential character has been created by the craftsmen at Moser, the Czech Republic’s premier crystal manufacturer, founded in 1897 and a member of the prestigious Comite Colbert.
The Ludwig Moser Suite, named after the company’s founder, is suitably majestic and one of the largest in the hotel. The Leo Moser Suite, named after Ludwig’s son, who led the company to global prominence between the two World Wars, is crowned by a lovely arched ceiling, with a tall Baroque window serving as its focal point.
The suites‘ walls are decorated with framed portraits of Ludwig and Leo Moser, as well as vintage images of scenes from the glassmaking factory. Both suites are decorated in an elegant palette, reminiscent of a residence belonging to one of the stylish locals – creams, beiges and warm red accents bathe one room, while powder blue, with royal blue, taupe, burgundy and white, grace the other.
Both suites have been provided with a soft sparkle through the use of crystal chandeliers, while charming crystal lamps provide a subtle, but beautiful, illumination of the bedside tables and desks. An assortment of decorative accents – crystal bowls and vases brimming with fresh blooms, as well as carafes and tumblers by Moser – provide the Moser company’s signature elements: eye-catching bursts of colour and distinctive light play.
