- .A $100,000-Per-Night Vegas Suite Designed by The British contemporary artist, Damien Hirst
This Vegas Suites is the most luxurious yet. The $100,000-a-night suites was designed by British contemporary artist, Damien Hirst.
Named Empathy Suite, it is an ultra-high-rolling addition to the Sky Villas collection at Las Vegas’s The Palms Casino Resort.
Those familiar with Hirst’s works can imagine the details. He is an artist with penchant for working with carcass of animals, butter flies, diamond encrusted human skull among others.
This motif is present in the 9,000 square-foot suite, which makes its official debut on March 1st2019.
One of the unique art installation at the suites is a pair of sharks suspended in formaldehyde-filled tank, has been set into a wall in the living room; a medicine cabinet called Vegas and dotted with diamonds graces the entry; and a ten-panel spread of the artist’s butterfly motifs on gloss-painted canvases easily value the suite’s art collection in the eight figures.
What makes the suites truly luxurious is the fact that Hirst carefully chose every material, giving attention to details of every furnishing, and conceived every detail (in collaboration with Bentel & Bentel Architects) down to the carpet and the drapes.
The butterfly designs continue on the terrace where there is an infinity-edge plunge pool that cantilevers high above Sin City; and in the bathroom that is covered wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with Venus Gray marble.
A 13-seat curved bar has been filled with medical waste—a nod to Hirst’s early Medicine Cabinet series, an overt comment on our over-medicated modern society—and topped with Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time, two vitrines containing a marlin skeleton and a taxidermy marlin.
There are also Italian leather sofas draped, again, with Hirst’s butterfly motif; a custom pool table covered in a replica of one of the artist’s colorful spin paintings; and a movie theater (where we suggest perhaps a screening of the art documentary The Price of Everything to put it all into perspective). Surprisingly, there’s also a wellness theme, (perhaps Hirst is on a health kick these days?) with a private healing salt room, two massage rooms, and private fitness center.
