Celebrating its fourth anniversary, Come Up To My Room is an annual alternative design exhibition housed in the historic 118-year-old Gladstone Hotel. Innovative, cutting-edge designers/artists are invited to transform all 12 of the Gladstone's second floor rooms into imaginative — and sometimes strictly aesthetic — site-specific installations. The exhibition showcases the work of practitioners and emerging designers who approach design with radical personal vision and has become a home base for designers/artists whose work falls outside of traditional practice.
