Examples include Tom Dixon copper shades, a Vladmir Kagan Swan sofa and staff uniforms by Czech fashion designer Jakub Polanka. In addition to its top-fl oor location, the boutique hotel's light and airy M Spa distinguishes itself with its clean, minimalist look. Before my treatment, I spent some time in the wellness area wet room. The walls and fl oor of the long, narrow space are made from a white Carrara marble warmed with dark wood accents, and the space features a KLAFS steam room, sauna and ice fountain. The area also includes a Kneipp Path, where guests walk on stones in a shallow pool of hot water, then switch to an adjacent cold-water pool. The path pays homage to 19th-century priest Sebastian Kneipp, who discovered the benefi ts of cold water stimulation for the circulatory and immune systems. M Spa M Spa COURTESY FILIP ŠLAPAL
