The location – the first of its kind
The name 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA comes from the legendary car brand Lagonda, renowned for extraordinary design, ultimate performance and the future-oriented attitude of its founder. The gastronomic concept of the 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA in Zurich is characterised by this future-oriented approach. Embedded in a generous and luxurious interior, the location offers its guests a perfect all-round experience.
Three partners are at the helm of the 1904 DESIGNED BY LAGONDA. Dr Andreas Bänziger and Dr Florian Kamelger, owners of several successful companies and themselves passionate racing drivers, are expanding their innovative range of luxury car experiences. Together with Aston Martin St. Gallen, they also put forward the Lagonda brand to the cooperation for Switzerland. Dario Cadonau, long-time business partner of the two entrepreneurs - his luxury hotel is a brand partner of Aston Martin St. Gallen - implements the common vision of a brand space with the expertise of the innovative hotelier and gastronomy expert.
"Modern gastronomy involves a comprehensive understanding of origin and tradition. This is also an integral part of being a good host. Passion means persistently promoting innovation and delivering excellence. Fascination is the driving force behind our passion, which means that our team makes every visit an extraordinary experience."
"Bringing culinary expertise and automobiles into one space is not only a great opportunity, it is a dream of an unconventional thinker like me. My previous career path in top-level gastronomy and my ambition as a chef are comparable to the engery inheren int motor racing."
