Take a Closer Look at the Stunning Chandelier at Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel at Disneyland Paris
Over the past few months, we here at MickeyBlog have been sharing some of the incredible details of a new Marvel-themed concept coming to Hotel New York at Disneyland Paris. On this Sunday morning we thought we’d hone in on something truly stunning, the magical decor elements that come together to make the hotel something truly magical.
Let’s start with the stunning chandelier above which takes center stage in the Manhattan Restaurant. According to Sylvie Massara, Art Director at Walt Disney Imagineering Paris, Disney wanted to recreate an elegant atmosphere that evoked a high end New York dining experience. According to Sylvie they also wanted a central element that would really wow guests.
The end product? The stunning lighting fixture you see above which is actually an inverted pyramid created with a shape, material and color meant to evoke the realm of Asgard while also giving a tip-of-the hat to Manhattan Skyscrapers!
Delving into the history of the Chandelier Sylvie handpicked a vendor in Prague that was known for their Bohemian crystal craft. Each component was glass-blown traditionally in Bohemian crystal glass. The crystals included in the finished masterpiece are champagne, amber and light crystal colors. Each component of the chandelier is silver-plated. There are more that 225 individual glass pieces that make up the finished piece!
Thomas Muller, a Scenographer on the project said of the installation process, “Many of the challenges we’ve encountered along the way had to do with the integration of this out-of-the-norm chandelier into the existing structure.” He continues, “First, the ceiling it hangs from had to be reinforced. To support that weight, we integrated a metallic structure in the concrete slab covered by a metallic color board. Also, the ceiling has integrated technical tubing, and we even rerouted the air conditioning system to accommodate it.
When asked what the hope is when guests see the chandelier for the first time, Sylvie said, “we have wanted this chandelier to become an iconic element of the guest experience.” She advised that Imagineers even worked with a lighting designer to make sure that all of the lighting fixtures in the restaurant enhance the chandelier and let it shine in all it’s beauty.
This is just one of the many incredible features you’ll find at the newly reimagined Hotel New York which will be welcoming guests back starting on June 21, 2021. The hotel is styled as a New York art gallery and is the first Disney hotel or resort dedicated to the art of Marvel.
It will host one of the largest publicly viewable collections of Marvel artwork in the world. There will be over 350 pieces on display including 50 specially created pieces that will span both the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Awesome amenities include the Spider-Man Heroic Selfie Spot, at Super Hero Station where there will be amazing photo opportunities. Guests can also sharpen your skills at Marvel Design Studio, train at the fitness center, relax in the indoor/outdoor Metro pull and head to the Hero Training Zone, an outdoor field dedicated to various sports activities.
The property will also feature 471 superior rooms and 90 executive rooms. There are 25 suites themed after Spider-Man, the Avengers or Marvel Super Heroes. There’s also a variety of unique restaurants and lounges each of which celebrates Marvel art!
We hope that we’re able to had across the pond and personally check out this stunning new property.
