The Kameha Grand Zurich Hotel

The Kameha Grand Zurich Hotel in Switzerland recently opened doors to a Space Suite designed by German artist Michael Najjar. Enter and an automated female voice inspired by John Carpenter’s science fiction classic Dark Star welcomes “crew members” and offers “handling instructions”. Inside, rocket engine inspired spotlights, exclusive novels, films and audiobooks about space travel, universe print (images from the Hubble telescope) on the carpet and other features combine to create outworldly interiors. The idea is to immerse guests in the atmosphere of a space station, tapping into various elements of perception to animate the whole experience. Website www.kameha.com.
