Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo has completed a comprehensive renovation of its 179 guestrooms and suites, which offer a contemporary Japanese experience.
Textile designer Reiko Sudo and art director Ryu Kosaka have transformed the guestrooms and suites, and built on the existing ‘Woods and Water’ interior design theme.
Jeffrey A. Wilkes has acted as principal interior designer for the Presidential Suite, which is inspired by gardens and bonsai. Bespoke fabrics and furnishings representing the woodlands and the changing seasons, have been incorporated throughout, with autumn leaf colours of gold, orange and purple and blooming springtime wisteria and sakura patterns embroidered onto headboards.
To honour the hotel’s location in Nihonbashi, an area that is closely connected to the culture of the Kimono, Sudo has used locally produced fabrics in all suite and guestroom interiors.
