This festive season, The Upper House launches its much anticipated collaboration with world-renowned design firm, Yabu Pushelberg, and innovative glass manufacturer, LASVIT. Blending their creative prowess and commitment to quality craftsmanship, they present a stunning design and light experience with the creation of a bespoke Christmas tree, which was unveiled on November 21, 2017 at the hotel’s entrance.

Complementing the collaboration, guests can indulge in incredible stay experiences with exclusive shopping benefits, in-room treatments and House credit until February 28, 2018.

The Upper House Christmas Tree
Now in its second year, The Upper House Christmas tree will take center stage as it captures the spirit of the season. Based on the Otto glassware and Cipher light collections launched earlier in the year between Yabu Pushelberg and LASVIT, the design represents a balance between heritage techniques, dramatic textures and contemporary forms. A warm and illuminated entrance will receive guests before they commence their upward journey through the House.

“It’s an absolute honor to collaborate with two iconic names in the design world. The duo behind Yabu Pushelberg have been great friends of our House for many years, and to have their concept transformed into a breathtaking work of art by the craftsmen of LASVIT is simply incredible,” said Marcel Thoma, General Manager of The Upper House. “We are thrilled to have the creation displayed at our House for all guests to admire.”

In the spirit of giving, the one-of-a-kind piece was auctioned off by The Upper House to raise money for charity, with all proceeds going to local organization The Society for AIDS Care. For more details, visit http://www.upperhouse.com.

To kick-off the festivities, The Upper House hosted an Up Close with Yabu Pushelberg on November 21, 2017, moderated by Suzy Annetta, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Design Anthology magazine, followed by the Christmas tree unveiling and cocktails on The Lawn (by invitation only).
