We collaborated with Japanese artist Houxo Que, who brought the interior to life with his fluoro paints. The room was converted into a 360-degree experience that transports us to Nippon’s metropolis.
We want the visitor’s journey to begin the moment they step through the door. From the Torii* to the entrances to the temples, the experience should mark the end of the profane and the start of the sacred – we must prepare the soul of the guest as they enter the space.
Torii*: Is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the profane to the sacred.
