Dear customers, friends and stakeholders of the R-Universe,

The Covid-19 crisis is having a huge impact on our lives at the moment and given the current global situation we have been instructed to adhere to the Federal Council’s decision that was made earlier this month and as a result we have had to temporarily close our doors to the public until further notice.

The health and wellbeing of our guests and employees is of paramount importance to us and therefore we fully support the decisions made by local and national authorities of the various countries where our R-Universe teams are located.

Although unprecedented times, we trust in the bright future of our group, and our teams across the R-Universe are working passionately to ensure more than ever that there will be an exciting and positive future ahead of us.

Even though our doors are currently closed we will make every effort to keep you updated with regards to what is happening with 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA. We hope that we can soon continue creating the distinctive culinary experiences you are used to from us. We also aim to provide you with some welcome distractions through our social media channels.

We will all need a great deal of strength and patience to overcome this crisis, through listening to professional advise and being kind to one another we will be able to achieve this.

Take care and look after yourselves and your loved ones!


Florian Kamelger and Andreas Baenziger

The Concept

Wilbur Gunn, American engineer, entrepreneur and renowned founder of the Lagonda brand, had always put the present under scrutiny, challenged the possible and re-imagined the future.

The new culinary space 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA continues this train of thought. In the heart of Zurich, the 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA is a combination of finest gastronomy, first-class service and a spacious design that provides room for you to think freely and enjoy great company. Rooted in revolutionary design, the 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA stimulates the imagination as well as the senses, creating a place where the future has a taste.

This is made possible by the unique, contemplative atmosphere of this space, which concentrates entirely on haute cuisine, extraordinary design and a razor-sharp focus on the needs of the guests.

Managing Director / Partner is Dario Cadonau (5-star superior hotel / Relais Châteaux IN LAIN, 17 points Gault & Millau, 1 star Michelin Guide). The 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA is operated by R-Experience. At the helm of the company are Dr. Andreas Bänziger and Dr. Florian Kamelger, successful entrepreneurs as well as passionate racing drivers.
