Antony Gormley's ROOM is both a monumental figural sculpture and an architectural extension to the hotel. Designed as an experiential work of art, there is a meditative stillness to the interior space that allows for a complete withdrawal from the world outside. Part of a suite of rooms decorated in the soft Art-Deco style of the rest of The Beaumont, the monumental bedroom, ten metres high, clad entirely in dark, fumed oak, and furnished only with a king-size bed, allowed the artist "to sculpt darkness itself."
Combine a stay in this extraordinary space with a one-on-one contemporary art tour of London, devised by SideStory and designed around your personal interests. Their expert, Joshua White will give you a memorable, insider's view of this exciting world. Insightful and deeply knowledgeable, Joshua lectures at the Tate museums and the National Portrait Gallery, as well as other leading arts institutes.
This is a fascinating opportunity to stay in a one-off suite and gain some first-hand knowledge. You don't need to be an expert, simply curious to learn more.
