After dinner, a short walk on Bankside for drinks at citizenM hotel, with a brief diverting stop on a stack of red chairs! The best chair of the evening was to be found in the hotel lobby: La Chaise, designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1948. The name is apparently a playful reference to the sculptor Gaston Lachaise whose 'Floating Figure' inspired the chair, exclusively produced by Vitra since 1991.
CitizenM is a new group of international hotels, now in Amsterdam, Glasgow and London, and plans to open in Paris, New York and Rotterdam. Visit the website for more details.
