Artist Room to be created by Teppei Ikehila

The “Artist Rooms,” in which each guest rooms are a work of art, has become a symbol of Park Hotel Tokyo and have been favorably received by our guests. Following the 31st-floor, where all guest rooms are Artist Rooms, the 34th-floor guest rooms are scheduled to be transformed into artist rooms. In April 2023, the creation of the seventh Artist Room on the 34th floor will begin.

Mr. Teppei Ikehila, an contemporary artist, will create this room.

Comment from contemporary artist Teppei Ikehila

It brings joy to people when they see the preciousness in everything around them.

Ikehila paints by incorporating the canvas with things he wishes to paint most that day, filling every corner of the canvas with the most precious aspects of his paintings.

In recent years, Ikehila has been exploring new ways of incorporating the concept of “borrowed scenery,” a Japanese garden landscaping technique, to create works in which the view outside the work also appears precious to the viewer.

Ikehila was attracted to the natural scenery in the past, but when he saw the night view from the hotel window, he felt that human nests were also a part of nature.

The diversity of human nests is different from the beauty of the simple regularity of the natural world.

He felt the presence of people, each one different from the others, in each light, and that this was something precious.

The window side of the Artist Room will be a work that borrows the city as a borrowed scenery.
The bedside wall will be a borrowed scenery of nature.
The ceiling will be painted with the help of all kinds of people, including the Hotel’s employees and guests.
Staying here, you will gain a preciousness of nature, the city, the people, and everything in sight.
“Tokyo Borrowed Scenery” is a world of inclusion based on the concept of borrowed scenery.
In Japanese gardens, borrowed scenery allows you to enjoy and capture the unique and ever-changing natural scenes only visible in the present moment.
“Tokyo Borrowed Scenery” will be completed when guests capture the present moment of Tokyo.
