A luxury five star hotel in Switzerland, Kameha Grand Zurich, has recently unveiled an incredible “Space Suite”, designed to mimic the interiors of a space station.
German visual artist Michael Najjar transformed the room so that “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”.
Guests are welcomed by an automated female voice, as seen in John Carpenter’s science fiction film Dark Star, and have the opportunity to spend an hour in an Airbus A320 flight simulator or take a relaxing soak in a steam bath “designed to simulate a view into the universe”.
Najjar was inspired by his training over the past three years in Russia for a civilian mission to space as part of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Pioneer Astronauts.
The room, which accommodates one to two people, includes a floating “zero gravity bed” that resembles the monolith from “2001: A Space Odyssey”, as well as curated literature, music and films related to astronomy.
“Space is the final frontier for humankind,” Najjar told CNN.
“Current developments in space travel and exploration will have a huge impact on our life on earth in the future. One day we will see hotels floating in space. What we did here is a space station floating in a hotel.
“They [guests] will forget that they are staying in a hotel room — they will feel like being on board a space station.”
But the accommodation doesn’t come cheap. The hotel is offering the out of the world experience at $US2000 per night and will appeal to someone who is “art loving, a collector, a visitor of Art Basel or someone who would like to have an overall art experience”, Carsten K. Rath, CEO of Kameha said.
