Marcel Wanders Designs Luxury Hotel In Spain | Hotel Design



These breathtaking images are none other than of the Kameha Bay Portals, a luxury resort in Mallorca Spain designed by Tec Architecture and interior designer, Marcel Wanders. Kameha Bay Portals has recently been admitted by the Leading Hotels of the World into its exclusive hotel association and is scheduled to open early 2013.

In addition to its beautiful dream-like design, the resort enjoys the highest standards of ecological sustainability and energy efficiency. The development of the Kameha Bay Portals will involve a ‘green building’, which, with its own sandy beach and access to a small bay, will blend perfectly into the natural surroundings.In accordance with the Kameha philosophy of anticipating and catering to the most diverse wishes of the guests, the Kameha Bay Portals will keep transforming its design based on the theme of the changing seasons, a design concept by Marcel Wanders.


According to Yoo, “currently planned are 64 rooms and suites between 36 and 240 m² that will extend to the main building and the beach. Spa treatments, holistic programs, and water sports are just a few of the activities one can anticipate from the Kameha Bay Portals resort.”





“Inspiring architecture by tec Architecture has met the extraordinary interior design of Marcel Wanders and in doing so has created one of the new favorite locations in Mallorca. For Sebastian Knorr, CEO of the tec Architecture architectural firm, the interplay of hotel and nature and the highest standards of ecological sustainability and energy efficiency are particularly important in the design. Because of this, the development of the Kameha Bay Portals will involve a ‘green building’, which, with its own sandy beach and access to a small bay, will blend perfectly into the natural surroundings. The investment volume amounts to 50 million Euros.

In accordance with the Kameha philosophy of anticipating guests’ wishes and catering to the most diverse wishes of the guests, the Kameha Bay Portals will keep transforming -­‐ like a chameleon. Based on the theme ‘changing seasons’, the design concept by Marcel Wanders is in line with the seasons: in summer, light fabrics and bright colors dominate, while in winter warm colors have an inviting ‘cocooning’ effect.”

Marcel Wanders Designs Suitcases



If you are a follower of this blog you will know how much I love Marcel Wanders work, if it were up to me I’d post about every single item he designs. This time the world renowned designer has designed a collection of suitcases for  luggage and bag company Fabbricapelleteriemilano. The collection is called: ‘Saint-Jacques.

Each of the suitcases comes with a TSA combination lock and handles designed to provide easier means of toting the bags around.

The interiors are organized to allow for the optimal placement of one’s belongings, while the exterior of the suitcase is covered in wanders’ signature pattern with zipper pulls that recall the ironic face of the designer.

‘I think the style conscious people will love the colors, the contrasts and the interior in bright colors,
while those who are attracted by the multi-sensory will appreciate the three-dimensional embossed surface (…).’ – marcel wanders

The suitcases are available in quick silver, jet black or space blue colors.

Casa Son Vida by Marcel Wanders | Residential Design

World renowned designer and a personal favorite,  Marcel Wanders, and award-winning Los Angeles, Switzerland and Hong Kong-based tecARCHITECTURE collaborated on the Casa Son Vida luxury villa on the Island of Mallorca. Located approximately 15 minutes outside of Palma de Mallorca in an exclusive community called Son Vida. The 8,500 square foot luxury residence acts to  redefine luxury architecture as it is typified by the traditional Mediterranean and Tuscan styles otherwise found on the island.



The  structure is a bold, curvaceous shape that completely evades conventional definition of modern villas. The idea is that the two pieces co-exist as separate entities, meeting abruptly and then quite literally turning away from each other. Their interaction suggests a chance encounter and speaks to the deliberate and bold juxtaposition of the two elements.

Dutch design legend, Marcel Wanders,  has collaborated with Senso on a new line of flooring Called “Impressions”. ‘It’s more about the texture than the color,’ says Wanders. ‘Some of them look almost edible, like chocolate.’. That said, the colors are bright and the effect of three-dimensionality rather impressive. Senso, the firm behind the flooring as suggested by Miracote, is a leader in advanced resins flooring.

MAC & Marcel Wanders: Combination Extraordinaire!

Filed under: Famous Designers,Fashion — Tags: , , — Sahar @ 7:35 pm



Marcel Wanders has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics in their annual couture collection which will be released on November 24th, 2010.

The MAC couture line consists of higher-priced, more luxury themed designs and products. Such collections are usually  considered ‘collectible’ (i.e.: Hello Kitty with Swarovski ,Monogram, Baroque Boudoir, etc).

The compact looks to be the Sheer Mystery Powder, which they launch in every couture collection.  There is also Air of Style concentrated perfume, a specially packaged brush , clutch, and four lipsticks and lip glosses.

To be honest I am looking forward to the packaging itself rather than what’s inside. Knowing how Marcel Wanders works, I am sure this will be one of the most stylish and intricately designed ones.
