Here and there – always yours. THE OMNIA now has its own perfume.

Our exclusively new designed fragrance evokes memories of moments and materials in THE OMNIA – of the soft lighting, of the flickering fire and countless books, combining warm, smoky notes with associations of cool metal and nighttime alpine air.

The olfactory concept comes from the New York creative studio Folie à Plusieurs, which uses fragrances as a means of deepening the emotional engagement with art and has already developed more than 40 contemporary fragrances in collaboration with artists, fashion designers and filmmakers. The famous perfumer Mark Buxton was commissioned with creating the actual fragrance. His daring and distinctive touch was discovered when he designed the first fragrance for Comme des Garçons. He has worked with almost all the major brands in the fashion world and has set new standards in niche perfumery since 2010.

An ode to the mountain of all mountains

The Matterhorn is and always has been the subject of photographs, illustrations, paintings and drawings in their thousands. Like no other mountain, this iconic peak casts its spell over those who behold it. And yet few images or depictions can truly do justice to this monument of rock and eternal ice. The Matterhorn – close enough to touch at THE OMNIA.



Art in the Mountain Lodge

Photographs by Balthasar Burkhard, Bruno Augsburger and Simon Opladen are on display in all the rooms and public areas at THE OMNIA.

Mountains and valleys, rivers and seas, flora and fauna from around the globe: it is these windows on the world beyond the mountain village that strongly define the dialogue of cultures in THE OMNIA.



Design in the Mountain Lodge

The décor of each individual room in the Mountain Lodge is characterised by classic twentieth-century artworks as well as pieces commissioned especially for THE OMNIA. Mies van der Rohe, Raymond Loewy, Vladimir Kagan, Eero Saarinen – explore their designs, interpreted by young illustrators.

An atmospheric whole

The individual parts come together high on the rock to form an atmospheric whole. The location, the
architecture, the design and you as our guest. Here you should feel at ease, you should quite simply be yourself.


A dialog between the cultures

THE OMNIA is the contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge. Here in the Swiss Alps, the mountain lodge, a quintessentially American concept, has been reinvented for its European environment by the New York based architect Ali Tayar (1959 – 2016). This dialogue between two cultures was the starting point for the design.
