Bums on seats at Wembley

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

The Manser Practice has been busy designing the new Wembley Hilton, part of the wider Wembley development facing out over Arena Square. The 361-bed, nine-storey, flush black granite and curtain walling hotel was designed to reflect the architecture of the iconic English venues surrounding it, but inside dark woods and leather give it a more Iberian feel. Four furniture collections from Morgan add to the sensation. Its Seville lounge chair is a signature element in all the bedrooms, and appears as low back chairs and bar stools in the hotel’s ‘Icons Bar’.
