would you sleep in this shark suite? french design agency ubi bene has collaborated with airbnb on an underwater accommodation — not suitable for the faint of heart. 360 degree transparent glass walls encircle a round bed, small side tables, and a bookshelf, offering a panoramic view of 35 live sharks swimming in the surrounding abyss. designed specifically for the paris aquarium, the room is submerged 10 meters deep within 3 million liters of water, completely immersing guests in a subaquatic spatial experience. visitors will have the chance to intimately get to know their ‘roommates’ alongside host fred buyle, a freediver and underwater photographer, who will provide an introduction to the often misunderstood life of sharks, and how they are essential to the ecosystem of the oceans.

interested participants can apply by submitting a proposal as to why they are the ideal candidate for the underwater adventure. following the departure of the last airbnb guest — taking place april 11, 12 and 13, the room will continue to serve as an observation area for biologists and scientists.
