Welcome to Funky Friday, a new segment we’re trying out which features one photo that we think singularly expresses a hotel’s inner psyche. We look for – and find a lot of – wacky, wild and wondrous designs that seem to have one thing in common: a Type A personality. So why not have a bit of fun as we all wrap up our week by taking a quick look at some hotels that quite frankly, want our attention.

Every time we catch up with London's Andaz Liverpool Street to see what’s happening, we are blown away by their lust for life, creative spirit, and shear marketing genius. They have done it again with their latest artistic endeavor, an interactive art exhibit courtesy of Andaz and masters of the bubbly, Veuve Clicquot. This is just so way out and wonderful that we feel we must include it in our Funky Friday segment.

Andaz collaborated with Veuve Clicquot and UK-based designers Harvey & John to come up with this off the wall – off the ceiling rather – exhibit that opened this month. This is an amazing merging of pop-up art, kinetic energy (energy from movement or motion), and illumination. Harvey & John are specialists in interactive art that they refer to as “living sculpture.” Their work will bring out the kid in all of us, no kidding. Now let your minds expand while we try to describe this ‘fantastic voyage.'

First get ye to the lobby of Andaz Liverpool Street. You will find yourself mesmerized by gigantic suspended spheres that represent-- what else-- champagne bubbles. Wait, there’s more. We live in an interactive world, and this is the kind of art you are supposed to touch. So jump in and get up close and personal with the bubbles, and when you do they will respond with a glowing soft light, and upward and downward movement.

After being fully immersed in this mind-bending abstract of a freshly poured glass of champagne, don't be surprised if you are handed a complimentary glass of the real Veuve Cliquot. We’re in.
