A London hotel called The Beamount called upon the services of sculpture artist Antony Gormley to design one of the rooms. The suite is called ROOM and was made to be a “cave-like space” whose “creation allowed the artist to ‘sculpt darkness,’ encouraging the occupant to enter a different state of consciousness.”
The art deco style suite has just a bed in the bedroom, as well as a sitting room. The outside of the hotel also has an interested cubed design. The artist released a statement about the suite’s design.
“The idea was to reveal this slowly. I wanted to structure night as a preamble to sleeping and dreaming, and reinforce the feeling of being fully enclosed so the window only gives a view of the sky. At night, the shutters allow total enclosure and provide total blackout. The very subliminal levels of light allow me to sculpt darkness itself. My ambition for this work is that it should confront the monumental with the most personal, intimate experience.”
