Hotel Everland

Hotel Everland is a project by Swiss artist-duo L/B (Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann). L/B are known for their Installations that invite the viewer to get involved and become part of the artwork.
Everland is a Hotel with only one room. It includes a bathroom deluxe, a king-size bed and a lounge. The bounteous dimensioned room represents the subjective dream of a hotel:
the architecture, the playful details, as well as the request to steal the golden embroidered bath towels. All Everland guests are partaking in the project.


Yverdon, Burgdorf, Leipzig, Paris, ...

Hotel Everland was first developed for the Swiss national exhibition Expo.02 and was located on the lake of Yverdon. Afterwards the mobile pavilion was brought to Burgdorf and placed on the factory roof at L/B's studio.
From June 2006 until August 2007 Hotel Everland is placed on the roof of the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Germany.
During the opening times of the museum, visitors can take a peek at the Hotel. After closing hours it's reserved to the happy ones that have booked the room for a night.

In September 2007 Hotel Everland moves on to Paris where it will be installed on the roof of Palais de Tokyo. It will also be exhibited for one year and run as a hotel, but this time with a view on the Eiffel Tower. The room can be booked online.
