The Arte Luise Kunst Hotel is not your average collection of characterless white rooms. Situated in bustling Berlin-Mitte, the hotel is a gallery of sorts in which each room acts as installation by a different artist. Ranging from peaceful to surreal to totally bizarre, the rooms are sure to inspire some unique dreams.
• Artist Markus Linnenbrink created a sea of vibrant colors, which the hotel describes as "giving rise to an inexplicable, comfortable airiness."
• Every good hotel room should have an animal emerging from the wall. This one, the aptly named Beneath the Red Horse room, was created by artist Roman Schmelter.
• And sculptor Hans van Meeuwen must have agreed when he created his Nest room, complete with a 2 meter long beak over the bed and a plethora of oversized eggs scattered around the room.
• Artist Andreas Paeslack's room, The Poor Poet, depicts Carl Spitzweg's painting of the same title.
• Volker März's Tribute to Edward Hopper room mimics crisp lines and realism of Hopper's paintings.
• The hotel describes Shukhrat Babadjan's vibrant room as an "Uzbek folkloric room as imagined by the artist. Featuring found objects from Western consumer society brought to a dignified polish using traditional colours. They are incredibly beautiful and only obvious as satire upon closer inspection. "
• For Vincent's Bedroom, artist Irene Hoppenberg created an exposition from the collection of rooms depicted in Van Gogh's own paintings.
• With black outlines running along the edges of all straight lines in the room, Kehl's Comin room makes you feel as if you're actually in an illustration.
• Complete with a floating bed and fold down seat belted seats, nearly every elelement of Silke Vollmers's Flight- the myth room is created for airplane remnants.
• The peaceful Studio room, created by Augustus Goertz, and meant to be a reflection of the artist's Tribeca studio, is an ongoing creation that will continue to be added to during the artist's frequent trips to Berlin.
