Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty
The Park Hotel Tokyo and ART colours
Since ancient times, the Japanese have had the wisdom to integrate various aspects of nature into daily life. They have an untiring love affair with the four seasons.
The blessings of nature change with the seasons, and are always accompanied by a change of colours.
A sense of emotions expressed by colour together with the five senses is a distinctive feature of the Japanese sense of beauty.
ART colours is an attempt to find that sense of beauty.
Through Japanese art works, a fresh look at art, culture and life can be experienced.
To touch the beauty of the soul, surely a hotel which refreshes mind and body, and where more time is available for relaxation than in art museums, is an ideal venue for such an experience.
The staff of the Park Hotel Tokyo, with their understanding and pride of their own culture, look forward to welcoming you with traditional seasonal Japanese hospitality to our atrium sky garden in the heart of the bustling Tokyo metropolis. We invite you to enjoy cultural exchange through the medium of art.
< What is ART colours? >
A series of projects to provide Japanese experiences to visitors in the areas of ART — Atrium, Restaurant and Travel, which are considered pillars of Park Hotel Tokyo’s services — that enable people to appreciate the aesthetic appeal of the four seasons.
The Park Hotel Tokyo concept, Infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty, also ties the hotel to art, design, and is a perfect match for the ART colours project.
All guests arriving at the Park Hotel Tokyo will first witness the Atrium, which is one of the largest atriums in Tokyo, spreading through ten floors. Through the glass windows behind the Reception counter, visitors can see the Tokyo Tower, which shows different scenery from day to night. Events and exhibits showing seasonal art pieces are held as part of the ART colours Exhibition which are held here in the Atrium.
During the ART colours Exhibition period, the large wall is used as a screen to project a video which the motifs are taken from the artworks in the exhibition.
At the restaurants and bar, the “food artists (including head chefs)” materialize their own artistic ideas according to the ART colours theme. Their original cocktails, desserts, and cooked dishes complement the art pieces at the ART colours Exhibition. Tables are decorated with tea sets and plates original to the Park Hotel Tokyo, created in collaboration with ceramic artists, glass artists, and traditional craftsmen.
“Artist in Hotel” is the hotel version of “Artist in Residence”. The artist himself stays in the hotel, absorbs the atmosphere of the hotel while partaking of its facilities and services, and fashions a hotel room into a work of art. Inspired by the “Japanese sense of aesthetics”, the artist paints directly on the walls of the room as if it were a tapestry, and affix original paintings and objects to the walls so that the entire room becomes a room with the artist’s view of the world.
All guestrooms on the Artist Floor (31F) are painted by the artists directly on to the walls. Each individual room is a piece of work itself.
