Es Devlin invites guests to walk through hotel room wall in Miami

Set designer Es Devlin has created an immersive installation at the Miami Beach Edition Hotel, which is inspired by the experience of waking up in an unfamiliar hotel room.

Called Room 2022, the work was launched during this year’s art week in Miami. It marked the British set designer’s first site-specific art installation in the city, and her first in a hotel.

The experiential work takes guests on a journey through a series of abstract spaces, including a mirror maze similar to the one that Devlin created in Peckham for Chanel in 2016.

It begins in a deceptively normal hotel room, numbered 2022. Here, guests are seated and watch as one of the walls – which appears initially as a window overlooking Miami beach – reveals itself to be a video screen.

As the curtains are drawn across the window, the room falls into darkness. As the sun rises a single line of light peeks through the curtains.
