DDAA's 'framed function' hotel room in tokyo is a blank canvas displaying abstract objects

DDAA designed a cube room dubbed ‘framed function’, taking part in BnA art hotel in tokyo which features rooms all produced by different artists. the place is equipped with plain white walls and a large bed that creates the feeling of a huge blank canvas, while abstract mobile objects are displayed on them.

as the name suggests, the art hotel accommodates rooms designed by artists; DDAA was the only team that made a living space from architecture and interior design. the architects sought to generate a room that behaves like a painting while maintaining the necessary facilities and functions of the hotel, instead of creating art to add to the hotel functions.DDAA's 'framed function' room in tokyo is a blank cube canvas displaying abstract objects

 

 

the room displays no artwork, but abstracted yet functional framed objects, creating an exhibition-like experience. the largest part of the front wall is covered by pillows embedded in the wall. moreover, a table, table legs, bed tray, mirror, and indirect lighting are presented like art pieces creating a sharp contrast with the blank walls.

based on the concept of ‘becoming a patron by staying in an artwork,’ a portion of the hotel’s accommodation fee will be given to the artist who designed the room.DDAA's 'framed function' room in tokyo is a blank cube canvas displaying abstract objects
