Damien Hirst created a $100,000-per-night hotel suite in Las Vegas. Sharks suspended hanging from the ceiling, graphics of oversized pills, and floors patterned with butterflies are waiting to welcome the most high-end guests in this hotel suite. British artist, Damien Hirst, planned this interior design project for the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
This suite is considered to be the world’s most expensive hotel suite, and everything inside is a merge of art and design and definitely up to the guests’ expectations. Available for free for guests with over $1 million in credit at the resort, or anyone else that simply has $200,000 in hand for a two-night stay, Hirst‘s Suite takes over 9,000 square feet (836 square meters) and occupies two stories within the Palms.
This suite is composed of two master bedrooms, an outdoor pool overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, numerous lounges that can fit more than 50 peoples, a massage place, a relaxation room, a gym, two bathrooms, and a powder room.
Its contemporary interior design is absolutely outstanding and truly just one more masterpiece brought to the interior design world by the iconic Damien Hirst. Designed by Hirst himself in collaboration with New York firm Bentel & Bentel Architects, and local firm Klai Juba Wald Architects, this place is a true abode of modern art.
From the furniture to the textiles, nearly every single aspect has the artist’s touch. On the walls, six large-scale Damien Hirst artwork is displayed in the most dramatic way. But nothing beats the impact of the two bull sharks in a white tank.
Hundreds of stenciled and embroidered motifs of skulls, pills, and butterflies can be found on walls, furniture, and upholstery inside of the entire suite. There is no such thing as too much for Damien Hirst, and it all blends dramatically but beautifully from an artistic point of view.
