Step into Kuma’s room — inspired by the finesse of Japanese carpentry — where minimalist style meets overlapping panels of Swiss oak. The use of natural materials continues in Mayne’s Wood rooms, three-dimensionally paneled with indigenous wood and featuring a stand-alone sculpture shower. Select Zumthor’s space for an equally awe-inspiring stay, combining stucco lustro — an Italian Renaissance plasterwork technique — with hand-painted curtains made of habotai silk.
