Designer Jean-Michel Gathy has created a 3D origami-inspired feature wall for Four Seasons’ spa sanctuary in its upcoming hotel in Japan – called Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi.

Dominating the spa lobby, the flowing paper structure appears to billow and sweep outwards and has been designed to calm guests as they enter the spa. Gathy’s work is inspired by Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake’s flowing fabrics, as captured by photographer Namiko Kitaura.

The top-floor spa includes five private treatment rooms and has a wellness menu inspired by traditional Japanese treatments designed to balance the mind and body. Guests will be able to enjoy facials, massages and Japanese-inspired signature experiences.

The flowing, multidimensional design will also be found throughout the 190-guestroom hotel, which is due to open on 1 July 2020. This will be Four Seasons’ third Japanese property.

The hotel covers the top six floors of a new, 39-storey tower by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and also features four distinct dining and drinking concepts.

The hotel group also has two other hotels in Japan – Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo Marunouchi and Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto.

Opening “Four Seasons at Otemachi showcases next-generation luxury and lifestyle as we quite literally elevate the hospitality experience to a new level in the city,” says Rainer Stampfer, Four Seasons president, hotel operations – Asia Pacific.
