_ A low occupancy experience

















BED FELLOWS




The inherent satisfaction of having just enough people














Bed in, Yoko Ono John Lennon at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal 1969




A proposal to offset low occupancy nights with experiential happenings on a very personal scale.
These durational activations are ignited around different concepts aligned with our talents at the nexus of art, fashion, performance, film and sound.


A 24 hour happening, open to the hotel guests and to the general public by rsvp and per time slots.
