The architect's proposal for a hotel museum
Not recommended for guests with small children
On the walls of this room, original furniture with different functions, such as table tops, legs, mirrors, hugging pillows, and trays, are displayed folded into a frame.
The artist, who is also an architect, wanted to provide an extraordinary museum-like experience without retaining or adding any more elements or functions to a typical hotel.
Therefore, the room is reconfigured spatially as a white cube exhibition room and everything in the room is an abstract painting.
Please enjoy the peculiar art experience of living with the abstract paintings on the wall while lying on the huge bed that occupies a large part of the floor.
