Did you ever have a burning desire to sleep in a space station? Were you a NASA geek growing up, or are you still one? How about I Dream of Jeannie or Star Trek? If so, the next generation of space awaits you in Zurich, Switzerland.
The Kameha Grand Hotel in Zurich, a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, which already has lots of neat themed suites (Diva, Poker, Burlesque, Workout, Serenity, etc.), has added a new suite – THE SPACE SUITE.
Exclusively situated on the fifth floor, the Space Suite – designed by the artist Michael Najjar – offers you a unique and entirely special experience. The outer space furnishings have been designed down to the smallest detail with a floating bed, pictures of galaxies, hovering astronauts and models of rockets. Together with the selected literature, music and films about the orbit, as well as original works by Michael Najjar, your overnight stay will become a journey into the universe.
The hotel’s Media file adds even more information:
For Kameha Grand Zürich, Michael Najjar has designed an exclusive Space Suite that allows the guest to feel the fascination of outer space. A floating bed, photos of the galaxy by the Hubble space telescope, orbiting space debris, floating cosmonauts and models of rockets, as well as selected literature, music and films, are the elements of the Space Suite. It also contains unique, large-format original works by the artist.
And CNN reports that:
It features a two-screen video installation visualizing space debris in Earth’s orbit, spotlights inspired by rocket engines, and a shelf shaped like a space glove to hold phones or key cards.
The room also has a library of books, audiobooks and films related to space travel, with an automated female voice inspired by John Carpenter’s science fiction film “Dark Star” welcoming the guests.
“They will forget that they are staying in a hotel room — they will feel like being on board a space station,” says Najjar.
Interested in booking the Space Suite – prices begin at 1,845 CHF – roughly $1850. Can the Suite be booked on points? I have no idea.
