Permanent art installation

The Seeing City, an immersive installation conceived by Studio Other Spaces, Olafur Eliasson and Sebastian Behmann, has transformed the bay windows of the restaurant and bar facades, situated on the 15th and 16th floors, into a machine to expand the mind.
On the 15th floor, a horizontal plane mirror duplicates the scenery, inverting the viewer’s perception. The mirrored ceiling continues this effect from the exterior of the restaurant to its interior, across a wall of glass.
On the 16th floor, a series of kaleidoscope boxes edging the façade reflect the heavens, transporting fragmented and reassembled images of the surrounding sky into the interior. Created by artist Ólafur Elíasson, cofounder of the Other Spaces Studio, these immersive works make a direct appeal to the senses. Unique and inexhaustible, they alter with the light, the seasons and the weather conditions.
