Award-winning experiential funhouse 29Rooms is making its way to Asia for the first time in 2023. 

From Feb 3 to 10, the rooms will open at the Gardens by the Bay over 10 weeks with the theme Lost & Found.

Launched by Refinery29, a company under VICE Media, the rooms in 29Rooms are designed by a group of global artists along with creative directors Albie Hueston and Piera Gelardi, to tackle issues such as womens’ rights and gun violence.

It has also previously featured rooms designed by celebrities such as Lizzo’s Move and Be Moved, with giant disco balls and RuPaul’s Wig Out, a hair salon based on the drag queen’s most iconic hairstyles in previous editions in the United States. 

One of the rooms in Singapore, highlighted on 29Rooms’ Instagram page, is named Make A Mess. Visitors are encouraged, as the name suggests, to make a mess in the room, either by splattering paint on the walls or scribbling all over the room.

29Questions, a set of prompts to get audiences to reflect and think about the past year, will be part of the 29Rooms Asia experience. These questions will go hand in hand with the different rooms in the event.

Some of the questions include “What are you manifesting for the future?”, “When was the last time you truly disconnected?” and “Forget new year’s resolutions, what’s one thing you want to do right now?”.
