Designed by award-winning Dutch architects Concrete, with furnishings courtesy of Vitra and Panton, citizenM Bankside offers up the best in designer hotels on London’s South Bank. Standout pieces include Jasper Morrison’s sculptural cream leather bucket seats, Frank Gehry’s corrugated cardboard “wigglestool” and an Eames lounge chair. Stuffed with curios and books from around the globe, the lobby/bar feels like the spacious living room of a seriously well-traveled friend, from the mini replicas of the Eiffel Tower to the New York license plates to the Russian dolls. Upstairs, corridors to the bedrooms are printed with large Google map–style images, and walls are dotted with inspiring quotes. Here you will find 192 space-efficient guestrooms kitted out with Vitra furniture, wall-to-wall windows and super-kingsize beds clad in Frette linens.
