Other VR companies are similarly subdued. This art messes with your perceptions □… Sonos Creative Event Agency. Intel CES - All of it Now. Installations.

The space here is full of New York design details spread across a working coffee roaster, tubes in the ceiling that carry freshly roasted beans to the coffee bar, tons of seating, 10 bathrooms, and every kind of coffee brewing style one can imagine.

This video, exclusive to Dezeen, reveals how Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama created the giant female robot that took centre stage at Dior's Pre-Fall 2019 menswear show in Tokyo.
