EVERLAND: THE HIGHEST HOTEL IN THE WORLD
Designed and built by the artist duo L/B, the Everland Hotel is now instaled on the roof of the Palais de Tokyo, where it wil remain for an entire year. The artists Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann (L/B) are not new to the Palais de Tokyo, having contributed a piece to the cinq milliards d'annees (Five Billion Years) exhibition. Now they have created a novel installation on the Palais’s roof. A work of art and a hotel, the Everland project offers each visitor a unique opportunity to experience a piece of art from within, in the same way one spends a night in a hotel. Room with a view installed right on the Palais de Tokyo’s roof, more than 30 meters above the Seine, the Everland Hotel features an exceptional point of view on Paris and the Eiffel Tower. Peering through the hotel’s large curtainless round window overlooking the “salon-lounge” area, settled on one of the comfortable sofas, visitors will find themselves seemingly suspended on the edge of the sky. Double bed, minibar, embroidered bath linens, wifi connection and breakfast served in the room - the Everland offers of course all the comfort of a luxury hotel thanks to a partnership with the Sezz Hotel (www.hotelsezz.com). The care taken and the many choices made by the artists can be seen everywhere, from the retro-futurist design of the site to the little “surprises” like the collection of LPs and their turntable or the playful way reservations are made, along with lots of other details waiting to be discovered on site.

Reservations can only be made on line. Every day at a random hour, a new room is opened for reservations. However, Everland’s success means that the hotel is booked up for two months in advance. In other words, sometime each day a new room is open for booking two months later. For example, sometime on 28 October a room will be available for booking for 28 December.www.palaisdetokio.com/everland
