Le Meridien Unveils Innovative Lobby Concept.

The Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur has inaugurated its new hotel lobby, better known as Le Meridien Hub, or the HUB, an interactive area themed, ''The Art of Connection'', to promote creativity and interaction. 

Around RM20 million had been spent to develop the HUB and transform the hotel's ballroom and function rooms. The HUB is the first of its kind in Malaysia. 

Latitude 03, with the signature espresso machine, supports the creative atmosphere of Le Méridien HUB by drawing guests to the sights, sounds and smells of the coffee bar. This is finished off with a skilled barista crafting signature coffees. Guests can enjoy local culinary offerings and experiences inspired by a coffeehouse environment. It is here that Le Méridien aims to stimulate the creative mind of their guests as “drinking an espresso is a creative act in itself.”– LM100™ member Andrea Illy, CEO + Chairman illycaffé

The bar’s naming is inspired by cartography – a key component of Le Méridien’s visual identity. The Latitude number of the bar stems from the hotel’s position on the globe, meaning that each bar has its ownunique number.

Le Méridien HUB is the coming together of all aspects of creativity encompassed by Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts worldwide. The HUB forms a gathering place for creative minds by providing a space that promotes dialogue, awakens curiosity and stimulates thinking through physical and personal interactions, enhanced by its three key aspects.

The first of these is a range of curated artworks and installations

in high-impact areas which establish a contemporary environment, encouraging guests to experience the hotel arrival from a new perspective. This is partnered with the HUB’s unique seating and styling which aims to encourage dialogue, stimulation, contemplation, and interaction by nurturing a creative atmosphere. Finally, this is all supported by the third key aspect of the HUB; Le Méridien’s range of signature events which bring together guests, local opinion leaders, media and associates through cultural discovery.

“The lines that I create are impulsive. I let them flow freely into any corner of the canvas, wherever my hands lead them to. They are uncontrollable but at the same time I am ‘with’ them. Lines for me are like the ‘steps’ that I take in life. Sometimes they are tiny ‘steps’ whilst sometimes they could be huge ones. They are like the steady strolls that I take in life; having a ‘Teh tarik’, or reading a book or even sitting on a bench in a park. Whilst sometimes they can be like running or rushing. They are like the journey in life which surprises me, leading me to somewhere eternal but going through many unexpected episodes, discoveries and trails.  Through experiencing all of this, I learn to know how life teaches me. Lines are symbolically what I see when I relate myself to this
journey. They forever astonish me, test me and make me see things differently.” - Khairul Izham

Women will definitely go nuts when they see this.

Latitude 03, with the signature espresso machine,also supports the creative atmosphere of Le Méridien HUB by drawing guests to the sights, sounds and smells of the coffee bar.  In the beginning there was wine.
