Christmas Tree at The London EDITION

Christmas Tree at The London EDITION

The London EDITION is delighted to announce its Christmas tree this year has been exclusively designed for the Lobby Bar by world-renowned florist Mark Colle.

On first glance the tree appears as a traditional Christmas fir, but on closer inspection reveals a plethora of living materials arranged together into a towering mosaic of plants. Presented in complementary shades of green, the tree consists of mosses, traditional Christmas greens, ivy and more.

The scent of the tree fills the EDITION lobby with familiar festive aromas, ensuring the spirit of Christmas hits the minute you enter. Colle has added traditional glass light bulbs to the design to emulate Christmas baubles, illuminating the structure from top to bottom.

“I was delighted to be asked to design the Christmas tree for Ian Schrager’s breath-taking London EDITION hotel. The Lobby Bar has become a place for creatives from all industries to gather and I’m proud to use this setting to show a modern take on a traditional Christmas fir; comprised of numerous living materials in various shades of green, the scent should be magical.” Mark Colle

Antwerp based florist Colle is one of the most sought-after individual florists in the world and has become a go-to for the fashion and creative industries. Colle has made a name for himself creating installations for the likes of Raf Simons at Dior, where he made the acclaimed backdrop for the Christian Dior Haute Couture 2012 show, and Jill Sander, as well as arrangements and projects for high-profile clients including Dries Van Noten, Chanel and The Guggenheim.

"I would never want to do something with flowers unless it was with Mark...his hand is unique“ - Raf Simons

The Christmas tree will be on display until the New Year in the lobby of Ian Schrager’s EDITION hotel. Embodying Schrager’s ‘new kind of gathering place’, behind the refined Georgian exterior, are majestic public spaces including two bars, a 24-hour fitness facility and 173 secluded, intimate and luxurious wood panelled rooms and suites akin to cabins on a private yacht.
