Aspen Meadows Resort in Aspen is unveiling a major upgrade of its 98 guest suites that pays homage to the 40-acre property’s Bauhaus design roots and respects the work of original designer Herbert Bayer.
The newly renovated guest suites at Aspen Meadows Resort are designed by Michael Suomi of Manhattan-based Suomi Design Works heavily feature reds, blues, and yellows that represent the Bauhaus’ original primary color theory and adheres to the movement’s geometric principles. Legacy furniture like Saarinen Tulip Tables and Bertoia Bird Chairs were carefully restored and new pieces, like platform beds with underneath storage, were added.
The updated living areas feature new work/dining areas, a blue leather banquette, a Bauhaus-inspired sleeper sofa, and updated coffee tables, end tables, and area lighting. Many rooms also feature additional reading areas with settees and pendant lights. The suites also have new bathrooms with lighter color schemes and updated kitchenettes with bar sinks, microwaves, and refrigerators. In addition, the renovation provides a technology boost with upgraded televisions, charging ports, and strategically placed electrical outlets.
The newly renovated guest suites at Aspen Meadows Resort will e completed by April and represent the latest in a series of notable improvements at the resort, which has 22,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Last year, the newly constructed Resnick Center for Herbert Bayer Studies opened and the historic Boettcher Building was renovated.
