outside–in room

 

Year - 2013.
Location - Mannheim; Germany.
Status - Competition - Made from the city of Mannheim’s trash, the idea was to create a relevant idea for an hotel room.
Keywords - Big brother – Implosion – Theatre – Primary actor.
Key ideas - “The room on the outside doesn’t look in a centrifugal way (in search of beautiful views) but, by contrary, it contracts centripetally. The implosion of the hotel room ends in the absolute ecstasy of our imagined character. What is for him an ecstasy, would be probably for an ordinary customer of this room a nightmare night.”
Main materials - Wood pallets, card.
