Rolf Sachs Designs “Saltz” Restaurant at The Dolder Grand in Switzerland

The Dolder Grand, a leading Swiss hotel located in Zurich, opened the doors to its new gourmet restaurant last week. Saltz, a conceptual space for all-day dining, attracts artists and epicures alike with its stylish interior, designed by Swiss artist and designer Rolf Sachs, alongside an original menu cooked up by Chef à la Carte Patrick Herz.

With experience in sculpture, interior architecture, and set-design, Sachs approached the space through the lens of the surrounding Swiss landscapes and cultures. Hanging rock sculptures and neon horizon-lines evoke the iconic Alps, while curvy, colorful furniture by Eero Saarinen and Jean Prouvé seats 12-person parties and single diners with equal comfort. Alternative spaces include an outdoor terrace with panoramic views, and a lounge and bar, each carefully furnished to awaken a unique ambience. Crafted from fresh and local produce, the restaurant’s international cuisine further reflects Sachs’ simple yet sophisticated design. Apéritifs, fruit brandies, appetizers, and entrées create a diverse menu with intriguing dishes, including homemade saffron ravioli, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and elderflower salad with pumpkin seed zest.
