The renovation of The Mark hotel in New York, overseen by designer Jacques Grange, will include the first complete hotel installation of Bang & Olufsen televisions in Manhattan.
At The Mark, black and white striped marble floors provide the visual foundation for a space epitomizing Jacques Grange’s sense of luxurious style. Mohair velvet, leather, and glass adorn custom-designed pieces aimed at creating the core aesthetic sense.
Upon this core aesthetic, the management of the hotel has layered additional one-of-a-kind offerings, including a gallery by Paris dealer Pierre Passebon; a full service salon by Frederic Fekkai; a restaurant by Jean-Georges Vongerichten; and state-of-the-art televisions by Bang & Olufsen in every room.
According to James Sherwin, general manager of The Mark, a great deal of planning and effort has gone into creating an experience for the guest that feels personalized and simple. “Communication is such a large part of our world that we want to make it as comfortable, luxurious, and uncomplicated as we can,” says Sherwin. “Simplicity is very important. With Bang & Olufsen, the joy of having something so effortless and superior is a great attraction for our guests.”
Each guest room in The Mark will feature the BeoVision 8-32-inch HD LCD television and the user-friendly Beo4 remote control from Bang & Olufsen. The Beo4 will also control other audio sources and secure full compatibility with each guest’s iPod, MP3 player, or laptop. Additionally, one touch of a button on the in-room phone will connect the guest directly to the Bang & Olufsen store on Madison Avenue, located around the corner from the hotel.
The Mark is slated to open this fall and is a development of Alexico Group, which has created prestigious New York properties that include 165 Charles Street by Richard Meier.
