MIR­RORS ON THE CEIL­ING

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Talking Points -

The Ea­gles’s “Ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia” has got noth­ing on this cre­ative spot. A mas­ter of de­cep­tion and il­lu­sion, French-Hun­gar­ian artist Mathias Kiss re-imag­ines nar­cis­sism with his unique art in­stal­la­tion-ho­tel es­cape “The Kiss Room”. De­signed to phys­i­cally re­flect its visi­tors while mak­ing them ques­tion their place in ar­chi­tec­ture and space, min­i­mal fur­nish­ing in pri­mary colours and 1,000 mir­rors en­gage guests in a deeply per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence. The space may be within the bois­ter­ous Le Marais café and bar La Perle, an in­te­gral part of the Parisian nightlife scene, but don’t worry about not get­ting a good night’s sleep; the room has been mod­i­fied to pre­vent guests be­ing dis­turbed by ex­te­rior noise and in­stead soothes them with a song spe­cially de­vel­oped for “The Kiss Room” by Ni­cholas Godin from the French band Air. Break out the pink cham­pagne on ice. Open till Au­gust 8, 2016. Check in for one night only at La Kiss Room, 78 Rue Vieille du Tem­ple, Paris. www.lakiss­room.com
