Inspired by the infinite possibilities and exclusive stories of the Ritz-Carlton hotels- visitors were taken on an audio-visual journey around the world told through tastes, smells, visuals, sound and performance. The concept started from the idea ‘if only the hotel walls had eyes and the sheets could speak’- blank canvas of untold stories as panels of abstracted doors of an infinite maze of corridors.

The guests would be wondering the ethereal hotel hallways, leading onto the mysterious Room no.8 – a magical space of infinite possibilities, transformed with projection mapping, food and drinks, and actors to guide them through the 8 different scenarios of the night.
