The Chedi Andermatt

We were lucky enough to spend January surrounded by snow and Alpine air in the most beautifully designed hotel, The Chedi, Andermatt. The occasion was a double birthday celebration with guests invited for a weekend of parties on the slopes. Gold leafed snow bunnies illustrated onto paper tablecloths (of course accessorised with water coloring pencils) and mini Pine Trees created a distinctly Swiss setting for the first night of Baked Mont D’Or, Alpine Spotted Trout and dancing to the enigmatically Parisian Les Trois Mallets. A long lunch was the order of play for Saturday where we designed an Alpine Apres retreat with bespoke gingham tablecloths, cow bells and sheepskin throws. No sooner had the gluehwein finished before it was onto the main event, where the restaurant at The Chedi was transformed into a dazzling party. A brushed gold dancefloor, ‘toblerone’ pyramid DJ hide and parabolic reflectors created the gold midas backdrop for DJ Dan Lywood to liven things up, with guests dipping outside to our ice pyramid bar to cool off with a vodka by the fire pits.
