This schizophrenic space goes to show just how much contrast plays into our understanding of a place, balancing eye-busting graffiti with stark white, divided by an (in)visible line drawn right down the middle.

The room is located at the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France, one of a series of artistically redesigned accommodations.

This particular work is known as ‘The Panic Room’ – and really, its binary extremes are a shock to the senses worthy of the title given it by its makers: Tilt (images by Big Addict).

Walls, mirrors, bed, ceiling, floor, nothing is sacred or set apart in this extreme interior design project.
