INTERIOR DESIGN

Majestic Minimalism

Perfectly complementing Ando’s “smooth-as-silk” concrete walls, museum-quality artwork abounds at the hotel. Here, a painting by American artist Frank Stella—one of the leading figures of the postwar minimalist and abstract movements—crowns the hotel’s dining room.

Elsewhere, guests will discover a large-scale work by calligrapher and visual artist Rieko Kawabe, whose practice is rooted in Japanese aesthetic tradition, is equally mesmerizing.
